Please note the addition of a new column to the DOLR Valuation Report (including Cross Border) titled “Product Code”. The new column has been added to the end of the existing report.

Certain Fund Groups may only permit specific fund holdings within certain products, and some will aggregate their products for the purpose of consolidated statement reporting.

Based on distributor feedback, we understand that knowledge of the product in which you hold units is key when trading via STP, and reconciling your positions. Please use the new column (as required) to understand how your fund unitholding is held within and between Fund Group products.

An explanation of how to use the DOLR Valuation Report can be downloaded from our DistributorOnline Guides - http://ifdsportal.com/documents/dolr-3

Should you require any assistance understanding the Product Codes stated, or with your Valuation report, please contact us using Webchat (select Live Chat).

** PLEASE NOTE: ISIN GB00B4WM3915 was originally included in the fund list in error. This fund remains active and was not converted.

With effect Friday 26 May 2017 after the final valuation point at 12:00, any shareholding in the listed share classes (see column ‘CURRENT HOLDING’) will be converted into a shareholding in another share class of the fund (see column ‘NEW HOLDING’).

After the conversions, shareholders will therefore hold a share class with a different ISIN code and the number of shares they hold will also have changed.

Please note that in order to facilitate a smooth conversions process any deals submitted, via EMX and Calastone, in relation to the share classes detailed in both the ‘CURRENT HOLDING’ and ‘NEW HOLDING’ columns, after the final valuation point of 12:00 on Friday 26 May 2017, will be rejected.

Rejected deals in relation to the share classes detailed in the ‘NEW HOLDING’ column should be resubmitted via EMX and Calastone on Tuesday 30 May 2017, before the valuation point of 12:00, in order to be processed for this time/date.

The cut-off point for transfer requests placed via TEX, in relation to the share classes detailed in the ‘CURRENT HOLDING’ column was Friday 19 May 2017.


Fund list

Contract notes will be issued to unitholders, these will be available via DistributorOnline Reporting (DOLR) on 29 May.
