RBC MIGRATION: FURTHER INFORMATION

As recently communicated, the administrator for all the Foord global and international funds will change to RBC Investor & Treasury Services (RBC) from 1 July 2017. This announcement contains further information for investors.

Single Collections Bank Account: Change in Bank Details 

From 1 July 2017, Foord will maintain a single set of collections bank accounts with RBC (in US dollars, Singapore dollars, euro and sterling) to receive investor monies for all funds, irrespective of their jurisdiction. The details of these accounts are set out below in the section titled “STANDARD SETTLEMENT INSTRUCTIONS EFFECTIVE 1 JULY 2017”.

Please provide this information to your bank when instructing it to remit the monies via the globally-accepted SWIFT financial messaging service. 

The bank accounts currently in use will be closed at the end of June 2017. Any investor monies deposited into the old bank accounts on or after 1 July 2017 may be returned to the sender and may not automatically be transferred to the RBC single collections account for investment.

Dealing Arrangements During Migration to RBC 

Investors should continue to send redemption and subscription requests to the current service providers making use of the existing bank accounts until 28 June 2017. Redemption and subscription requests received by JTC, FundBPO and Credit Suisse before the ruling cut-off times on 28 June 2017 will be accepted and settled by the existing service providers.

Dealing will be suspended on 29 and 30 June 2017.

Subscription and redemption requests received by JTC, FundBPO and Credit Suisse after the respective cut-off times on 28 June 2017 until 30 June 2017 midnight, will be forwarded to RBC. RBC will process these requests as of Monday, 3 July 2017.

Subscription and redemption requests received by existing service providers after midnight on 30 June 2017 will not be accepted. Investors will be invited to resend their dealing requests to RBC.
