Please be aware that due to market volatility, we are experiencing a delay in pricing on some funds today. 

This will delay Calastone and EMX pricing messages, and deal confirmation reports from the Distributor Portal.

In accordance with the Investec Omnibus Prospectus for, without limit, Investec Fund Series II (the “OEIC Prospectus“”), days which are public holidays for the Chinese New Year period in the People’s Republic of China or Hong Kong will not be regarded as dealing days for the Asia Pacific Franchise Fund (the “Sub-Fund”).  

   

On Monday 27 January 2020, the State Council of the People’s republic of China announced that the Chinese New Year period will be extended to 2 February 2020.    

   

Therefore, in accordance with the OEIC Prospectus, Friday 31 January 2020 will no longer be a dealing day for the Sub-Fund. Any trades already submitted will be held and placed at the next available dealing day.  

   

The OEIC Dealing Calendar 2020 has been updated and is available on our website at www.investecassetmanagement.com/OEIC-Dealing-Calendar. This list is subject to further change as described in the OEIC Prospectus.   

   

If you would like further information regarding the OEIC Holiday list 2020, please contact your usual Investec Asset Management representative in the first instance.

BMO – UPDATE TO THE FUND SUSPENSION NOTIFICATION 17:00 20-02-2020

Suspension of dealing lifted

As you will be aware, trades that you placed between 1200hrs 17th February 2020 and 0800hrs 21st  February 2020 have not been accepted. During this period, dealing in the fund was formally suspended. This suspension on dealing has now been lifted and trading will be accepted from 0800 21st February 2020 .

Recognising that your circumstances may have changed in the interim period, we would request that any intended trades be re-instructed.  Instructions received prior to dealing cut-off on Friday 21st February 2020, will be settled with a shortened settlement cycle of T+1.  Transactions that are not resubmitted will remain rejected.

Please note that regardless of when your original trade was rejected, the redemption value of any rejected trade will be calculated based on the fund’s Valuation Point for the trading day on which it is re-instructed.




BMO – UPDATE TO THE FUND SUSPENSION NOTIFICATION 17:00 19-02-2020

An unusually large redemption request has led BMO Global Asset Management to temporarily suspend dealing in the BMO Global Equity Market Neutral V10 Fund. Whilst the Fund remains able to meet its liquidity obligations, doing so would leave remaining investors temporarily over-exposed to the underlying investment strategy. To mitigate this temporary risk, BMO GAM has taken the decision, acting in the best interests of investors, to temporarily suspend dealing in the Fund, with a view to resuming dealing from Friday, 21 February 2020.  

In the interim, BMO GAM is taking various measures to mitigate any further impact for investors from this, and any further possible redemptions and, from  today, has removed the Annual Management Charge (AMC) on the Fund.

See original communication below:

  • Important: Proposed Merger of Artemis US Equity Fund into Artemis US Select Fund

Current Fund

Receiving Fund

US Equity I Acc (GB00BMMV4S07)

US Select I Acc (GB00BMMV5105)

  • What is changing?
    1. If it is approved by shareholders, we propose to transfer the assets of the Current Fund into the Receiving Fund by a process called a Scheme of Arrangement (the “Merger”). New shares in the Receiving Fund will then be issued to you in exchange for your existing shares in the Current Fund.
    2. Following this, the Current Fund will be closed.
  • Why is Artemis making these changes?
    1. We have undertaken an assessment on the ongoing viability of the Current Fund. Having considered a number of options, we have concluded that a merger of the Current Fund with the Receiving Fund is in the best interests of investors.
  • When will the changes take place?
    1. In order for the Merger to proceed, at least 75% of votes cast at an Extraordinary General Meeting of shareholders (“EGM”) on 6 February 2020 at 10.00am (UK time) must be in favour of the transfer.
    2. Investors can vote for or against this proposal, either in person at the EGM or by sending us a completed copy of the Voting Form, to be received by us by 10.00am (UK time) on 4 February 2020.
    3. If the Merger is approved at the EGM, the Merger will take place on 14 February 2020 (the “Effective Date”).
    4. The results of the EGM will be published on our website www.artemisfunds.com by 5.00pm (UK time) on 7 February 2020.
  • How will you be impacted by these changes?
    1. If it is approved, the Merger will bind all investors in the Current Fund on 14 February 2020 whether or not they voted in favour of it, or voted at all. If the Merger is not approved, the Current Fund will continue in its existing form and Artemis will review its options in relation to the Current Fund.
    2. The Current Fund closely resembles the Receiving Fund and has a number of features that are similar, and so it is a felt to be a suitable alternative fund for investors in the Current Fund who wish to maintain their exposure to a long only US equity strategy.
  • What options are available to you?
    1. Our priority is to minimise any disruption to you and provide ongoing certainty and continuity. We believe that approving the proposed Merger would be in your best interests.
    2. If the Merger is approved and you wish to redeem your existing shares in the Current Fund (“Existing Shares”) or switch your holding before the Merger takes place, we must receive your instructions before 12.00 noon (UK time) on 14 February 2020. If you send a request after this time, we will treat this as applying to your new shares in the Receiving Fund issued under the Merger and it will be processed on the next dealing day in the Receiving Fund. If you wish to redeem or switch your Existing Shares prior to the Merger, please contact us using the details below.
  • Please note that a redemption or switch will be treated as a disposal of your Existing Shares for tax purposes and you may be liable to capital gains tax on any gains arising from the redemption or switch of your Existing Shares.
  • What are the tax implications of the proposed change?
    1. The tax implications of the proposed Merger are described in Part B of the Circular.
  • If you are in any doubt about your potential liability to tax, you should consult a professional adviser. Please note that Artemis will not be responsible for or pay any investor’s personal tax liability arising from the Merger.
