NOTICE TO SHAREHOLDERS OF THE SUB-FUND
OSSIAM STOXX® EUROPE 600 ESG EQUAL WEIGHT NR
Luxembourg, 23 November 2022
The board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) would like to inform you that amendments will be made to the prospectus of the Company in relation to the following sub-fund as from 23 January 2023 (the “Effective Date”):
OSSIAM STOXX® EUROPE 600 ESG EQUAL WEIGHT NR (the “Sub-Fund’)
Please note that:
Please find below a table setting out the current investment policy section and the updated investment policy of the Sub-Fund:
Please note that the following risk factor has been added for clarification purposes:
The Fund could be exposed to securities denominated in a number of different currencies other than the Reference Currency. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates will affect the value of some securities held by the Funds and can bring additional volatility
Please note that the following risk factor has been deleted as no longer relevant following the change of investment policy:
• Derivative and Counterparty risk
Funds may enter into listed and unlisted derivative contracts in order to have an exposure to underlying assets or to protect their direct assets. Payments on these contracts vary with changes of the value of the underlying assets. These contracts may cause the Funds to have a higher market exposure than they would have otherwise, which may in some cases increase losses.
Unlisted contracts are agreed with a specific counterparty. If the counterparty goes into liquidation or fails or defaults on the contract the Fund could suffer a loss. Because they are not listed, these contracts can be difficult to price.
As from the Effective Date, the Sub-Fund will no longer be eligible to the French savings plan called “PEA” for French investors.
In the event that your investment has been made via a PEA and in order to avoid the closure of your PEA and the loss of any associated tax benefits, you must withdraw or sell your shares before 22 March 2023, in accordance with the French tax administrative doctrine (BOI-RPPM-RCM-40-50-50 § 40 and s.).
These changes will enter into effect as from 23 January 2023.
Copies of the Prospectus and relevant key investor information documents (KIIDs) reflecting the above changes will be available free of charge at the registered office of the Company, once available.
Should you disagree with the planned changes mentioned above, you may redeem your shares, free of redemption charge until 22 January 2023 in accordance with the redemption procedure set out in the Prospectus.
Any further information may be obtained by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
