Liontrust Japan Opportunities Fund merges into Liontrust Japan Equity Fund

Japan Opportunities Fund merges into Japan Equity Fund

Following the approval of the proposal to merge the Liontrust Japan Opportunities Fund into the Liontrust Japan Equity Fund at the Extraordinary General Meeting held at 11:00am on Monday 1 November 2021, the merger was made effective on Monday 8 November 2021.

Shortly after 8 November 2021, you will receive a merger notice detailing the shareholding in the Liontrust Japan Opportunities Fund prior to the merger, along with your new shareholding in the Liontrust Japan Equity Fund. The value of your investment will be the same in the Liontrust Japan Equity Fund as it was in the Liontrust Japan Opportunities Fund immediately prior to the merger. 

For those investors who have a Regular Savings Plan with Liontrust, your Direct Debit collection, with effect from 15 November, will continue into the Liontrust Japan Equity Fund unless you tell us otherwise.

For those investors who have a Liontrust ISA account, there will be no impact on your ISA because your new holding in the Liontrust Japan Equity Fund will remain within the ISA wrapper.

For ISA investors, if you have elected to switch to another Liontrust fund, redeem your holding in full or transfer your ISA to a different manager, you will receive confirmation of this shortly after 8 November.

If you require any further information about this merger, please do not hesitate to contact us on 0344 892 0349 (9am to 5pm Monday to Friday) or via email at liontrustadmin@bnymellon.com.
