A summary of the key changes which impact all sub-funds of the Plc is below.


Change of Management Company

As a result of a thematic review from the Central Bank of Ireland which assessed how fund management companies (“FMCs”) have implemented relevant Central Bank requirements and guidance in relation to the organization of FMCs, the Directors have decided that in order to meet the expectations of the Central Bank, an external FMC should be appointed to the Plc. As a result, the Directors will appoint KBA Consulting Management Limited as Management Company, replacing the existing FMC, Canaccord Genuity Management Company Limited. The appointment is subject to the approval of the Central Bank of Ireland and is expected to take effect on or around 1 April 2022. 


It is not anticipated that the fees and charges of the Plc will increase as a result of the change in FMC. 


Canaccord Genuity Wealth (International) Limited, who is the current Investment Manager of the Plc, will continue in its role.
