AXA Rosenberg European Fund Closure
AXA Investment Managers UK Limited (referred to in this statement as (“AXA IM” or “we”)) has taken the decision to close the AXA Rosenberg European Fund (the “Fund”), a sub-fund of the AXA Rosenberg Global Investment Company ICVC (the “Scheme”). Our reasons for this decision are explained below.
After careful consideration with the Fund’s depositary, J.P. Morgan Europe Limited, we have concluded that the Fund is no longer of sufficient size to allow for your investment to be managed in an economical way.
We are aware that, due to the reduced size of the Fund, the Fund is no longer providing value for its shareholders when taking account of the fees and costs incurred in running the Fund. Further, there does not appear to be any prospect of a resurgence of demand in this Fund or its strategy to attract sufficient new inflows to make the Fund commercially sustainable.
We therefore believe that it would be in the best interests of all parties to close the Fund. We have the consent of the Fund’s depositary to do so and approval from the Financial Conduct Authority (the “FCA”) that the closure of the Fund will not affect the ongoing authorisation of the Scheme.
The closure of the Fund will begin immediately following the suspension of dealing in the Fund on 07 September 2020 (the “Fund Closure Date”), or on such other date as may be notified to you.
