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:  

Last valuation point today (Thursday 25 April 2019) - Any trades instructed after the VP of 25th April 2019 will be placed but will go forward to the next available valuation point of Tuesday 7th May 2019:

From 26 April to 6 May 2019 the Tokyo Stock Exchange will be closed during Japan’s Golden Week holiday, which is longer than usual to mark the abdication of Japan’s emperor.

 

Jupiter have decided that utilising our standard approach to FVP (Fair Value Pricing) over the period will be sufficient to address the market closure. We therefore have no plans to suspend the fund. There will be no change to Jupiter normal trading of our Japanese funds during this period and the daily price file will continue to be released BAU.
