Please be aware that from 1 January 2018, we need to ensure that you can access the relevant Key Investor Information Documents (KIIDs) from our website. Our KIID documents can be located by clicking on the following link:  

https://uk.standardlifeinvestments.com/consumer/literature/kiids-oeic.htmltps://uk.standardlifeinvestments.com/consumer/literature/kiids-oeic.html

We believe this method of communication is appropriate in the context our current interaction (the alternative would be to provide you with hard copies). The reason for this communication is due to recent guidance from the FCA in light of MIFID II changes and we felt it was prudent to communicate clearly where our KIIDs are available for review.

Please note, DST are changing one column of the Final Distribution report on DOLR.  
   
Currently, column CY provides guidance for each distribution payment. The column reports 'Reinvested' for any Inc share class distributions that are mandated to reinvest into your account. Any other distribution method will report as 'Paid out'.  
   
Following distributor feedback, DST are changing this functionality.  
   
From 11 September 2017, column CY will be re-named to 'Reinvested'. Any distributions that are mandated to reinvest into your unitholder account will report a 'Y' in this column. Distributions that are not mandated to reinvest (i.e. paid out by BACS, are Accumulation share classes etc.) will report a blank cell.  
   
The Final Distribution report can therefore be used to identify any distributions set to reinvest onto your account, through the purchase of additional units.  
   
Should you have any questions about the change, or require assistance please contact us using Webchat from any page of www.dstdistributorportal.com.
