Reminder: On 22nd June 2020, SS&C will be upgrading our AWD system to version 10.9. This upgrade will be completed using RBS Collective Investment Funds Ltd as the first Asset Manager being moved onto the new version.


In preparation of the release, the RBS fax number was changed on 25 May 2020 and communications were originally sent out to confirm this. A further communication will also be sent out on 19 June.


As a reminder, please continue to use this new fax number 0330 123 3755.


Please Note: Any faxes sent to the old number will only be accepted as part of a ‘two week’ grace period ending 03/07/2020. After this point any faxes sent to the old number will be automatically rejected.

If forms are returned after this date we cannot guarantee coveralls will be in place in readiness for the migration. If you require a copy of the coverall forms, please contact us via our Webchat service.

For accounts that you wish to be linked to the Distributor Portal, we will require new linking forms submitted to us alongside letters of authority where required. For forms that are provided to us prior to Friday 3rd July 2020 we will link the accounts in readiness for the live date. Any forms provided to us after this date will be processed as soon as possible after the migration.
