Golden Week is a Japanese national holiday (based around a number of national holidays) that take place at the end of April / early May each year. This year Golden Week has been extended to 10 days in honour of the succession of a new Emperor starting on Saturday 27 April 2019. This has resulted in the Tokyo Stock Exchange being closed for 6 days from Monday 29 April 2019 to Monday 6 May 2019 inclusive. This has impacted a subset of fund ranges under DST's administration, but please note that not all fund managers are treating this the same way:
