What is Capacity Restricted Dealing?
Capacity Restricted Dealing ("CRD") allows Schroder Investment Management (Europe) S.A., (the “Management Company”, “us”) to recycle spare capacity in our funds. CRD may be implemented for funds which are closed to new subscriptions or switches, where capacity has become available. Any investor who wants to invest in a fund for which CRD is in effect, is invited to fill out an expression of interest form (“EOI”). When capacity becomes available, investors who have filled an EOI will be invited to subscribe to the fund or share class in the order in which EOIs were received on specific dedicated dealing sessions.
We may not implement CRD for all funds which are closed to new subscriptions or switches.
Is there a Minimum and/or Maximum investment amount?
Minimum subscription amounts set out in the relevant prospectus are still valid. However, subscriptions further to an EOI, will be subject to the following:
− Minimum: 2 Million EUR or USD
− Maximum: 20 Million EUR or USD
How will it work?
We will send a notice to investors who request to subscribe shares of funds that have implemented CRD inviting them to join a waiting list by completing an EOI and sending it by e-mail to their local sales office. Alternatively, investors may complete an EOI directly and send it by e-mail to their local Sales Office. Shareholders or investors who have submitted and EOI are called “Applicants”.
The relevant sales offices will acknowledge receipt and confirm if the EOI is valid. All customer due diligence must be finalised before the EOI is validated and an investor is added to the waiting list.
When capacity in a fund is available, we will contact Applicants on the waiting list to confirm their requested capacity allocation(s) (as set out in their EOI) and to invite them to subscribe in one or several dealing sessions, until the available capacity has been used up.
Applicants will be invited to subscribe in the order in which we have received their EOI. However, where capacity is offered to the relevant fund for a limited time period, only Applicants who are able to subscribe within the relevant timeframe, as specified in their EOI, will be contacted. Applicants will remain on the waiting list until they have been invited to subscribe as and when there is capacity. We will regularly check whether the details included in EOIs are up to date.
When we invite Applicants to subscribe, subscription orders should be submitted through the usual dealing channels (Please consult the Prospectus of the SICAV for more information). Subscriptions must adhere to the terms set out in the EOI and must be received by us within the relevant dealing cut-off date. Applicants may invest in any class for which they are eligible in accordance with the prospectus.
Investors who have not submitted an EOI will not be permitted to invest in a fund for which CRD is in effect unless the allocated capacity for the relevant fund has not been filled in by Applicants’ subscriptions. Applicants who withdraw their EOI will be removed from the waiting list and must re-submit an EOI to be able to subscribe in the future.
We draw your attention to the Important Terms and Conditions below, providing more detail on how the CRD facility will operate.
Will only existing investors be allowed to invest?
No, but new investors must open an account (directly or via a platform/custodian) and complete customer due diligence before they submit an EOI and can be placed on the waiting list. Existing investors must have completed any outstanding customer due diligence obligations in order for their EOIs to be validated and added to the waiting list.
How will investors be notified if we implement CRD for a fund?
When we notify shareholders that a fund is closed to new subscriptions or switches, we will include a reference to the CRD process, if applicable for that fund and will contain a link to this webpage and to the EOI.
If we implement CRD for funds that are already closed to new subscriptions or switches, we will send a shareholder notice containing a link to this page and to the EOI and advising shareholders that they may submit an EOI if they wish to invest when capacity becomes available.
The list of funds that have implemented CRD can be found under the below link, together with the EOI and other information in relation to CRD process.
