Liontrust Acquires Neptune

Liontrust acquires Neptune

Welcome to Liontrust. We are delighted to inform you that Liontrust completed the acquisition of Neptune Investment Management Limited on 1 October 2019.

We believe the acquisition of Neptune will be a great benefit for everyone concerned, including most importantly investors in the Neptune funds.

Liontrust provides the investment team with an environment that enables them to concentrate on delivering returns and meeting the expectations of clients and investors.

Following the acquisition, your funds continue to be managed by the same investment team, which is now called the Liontrust Global Equity team, and they are being run according to the same investment process.

The Funds have been renamed to align with the Liontrust branding. We have listed all the changes to the fund names below. One Neptune fund, the Global Income Fund, has been renamed as the Liontrust Global Dividend Fund. This name change is to prevent confusion as Liontrust has a fund called Global Income.   

You can find dedicated pages about the Liontrust Global Equity team and the funds they manage, including factsheets, performance and KIIDs, on this website.

Please explore our website for more information about Liontrust. You can also read about Liontrust and our other eight fund management teams in our Introduction to Liontrust booklet.

The name of the Authorised Corporate Director (ACD) of the Neptune OEIC funds and Manager of the Balanced Fund has changed to Liontrust Investment Management Limited.

Your existing contact, dealing and settlement bank details will remain unchanged while the Liontrust Global Equity team funds remain with DST, which was Neptune’s administrator. These contact, dealing and settlement details are also set out below. The dealing and administration information is also available in the How to Invest section on the Liontrust website.

Corporate and nominee clients can continue to use the same contact portal

Key Risks 

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Do remember that the value of an investment and the income generated from them can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed, therefore, you may not get back the amount originally invested and potentially risk total loss of capital. Investment in funds managed by the Global Equity (GE) team may involve investment in smaller companies - these stocks may be less liquid and the price swings greater than those in, for example, larger companies. Investment in funds managed by the GE team may involve foreign currencies and may be subject to fluctuations in value due to movements in exchange rates. The team may invest in emerging markets/soft currencies or in financial derivative instruments, both of which may have the effect of increasing volatility. Some of the funds managed by the GE team hold a concentrated portfolio of stocks, meaning that if the price of one of these stocks should move significantly, this may have a notable effect on the value of that portfolio.
