We would like to thank you, as a unitholder in the La Française Sub-Debt fund (hereinafter, the “Fund”), for the trust you have placed in us.
1. The operation
In order to avoid any divergence of interests between the Fund manager and investors, and in the context of compliance with the new ESMA directive concerning the method of calculating performance fees, the management company has decided to set up a system of variable management fees for units eligible for outperformance fees, calculated with reference to the outperformance of a benchmark index, based on the new ESMA methodology.
The Fund's management objective and benchmark indicator are therefore modified and will be aligned with the trigger threshold for variable management fees when applicable. The Fund's new composite benchmark will be as follows: 50% Markit iBoxx EUR Contingent Convertible (IBXXC2CO Index) + 25% Markit iBoxx EUR Non-Financials Subordinated (I4BN Index) + 25% Markit Iboxx EUR Insurance Subordinated (IYHH Index).
These changes to the Fund's legal documentation have no impact on the Fund's investment strategy, which remains unchanged. This modification does not require authorisation from the French Financial Markets Authority and will come into force on 23 September 2021. If you accept the terms, these modifications do not involve any action on your part.
If, however, the changes do not reflect your interests, you can have your units redeemed1 free of charge from 23 August 2021 until 23 September 2021.
1 The amount of any capital gains made as a result of this redemption will be subject to the taxation applicable on the date of the transaction.
