Amendments to the regulations of the Danske Invest Sustainability Equity Fund
The new regulations will enter into force on 3 April 2017. Unit-holders are not required to take any action in connection with these amendments.
On 13 December 2016, the Board of Directors of Danske Invest Fund Management Ltd resolved to amend the regulations of the Danske Invest Sustainability Equity Fund. The Financial Supervisory Authority approved the amended regulations on 25 January 2017, and they will enter into force on 3 April 2017.
From that date, the Fund’s management fee will be made up of a fixed management fee and a performance-based fee. The performance-based management fee is 20% of the returns in excess of the benchmark that exceed the High Watermark level at that time. The performance-based fee is paid to the company responsible for the Fund’s portfolio management. The MSCI World (TR) Index will also become the Fund’s official benchmark index. At the same time, the Fund’s fixed management fee will be lowered from 1.60% to 1.40%.
Participatory Notes (P-Notes) have been added to the permitted investments described in §5 of the regulations. Technical amendments related to mutual fund regulations have also been made in the Funds’ regulations.
The Fund’s risk profile will not undergo changes in conjunction with the amendments to the regulations. The Fund’s recommended investment horizon will remain the same.
Unit-holders are not required to take any action in connection with these amendments, and the amendments will not give rise to any costs or tax consequences for unit-holders. The Fund’s unit-holders are entitled to redeem or exchange fund units they hold without exchange or redemption fees until the date when the new regulations enter into force.
