The Sub-Fund has demonstrated small levels of demand and assets under management, while focusing on key areas of growth with the intention of bringing the sub-funds of the Company in line with current and future investor demand for better serving the needs of shareholders.


The liquidation of the Sub-Fund will take place on June, 22nd 2022 (the “Liquidation Date”).

Only shareholders who qualify as autorised participants may subscribe and redeem Shares on the primary market.

Please note that the Company does not charge any redemption charge (the “Redemption Charge”) for the sale of Shares in the secondary market. However, shareholders should note that orders in the secondary market may incur costs over which the Company has no control and to which the above disapplication of the Redemption Charge does not apply.


3.       Tax


Shareholders of the Sub-Fund should be aware that the liquidation, redemption or exchange of Shares may have tax consequences. Shareholders should consult their own professional advisers as to the specific tax implications of the termination under the laws of the countries of their nationality, residence, domicile or incorporation. If any of the above is not clear you should seek advice from your stockbroker, bank manager, legal adviser, accountant or other independent financial advisor.


4.       General information


Please note that four (4) Russian stocks are currently illiquid assets in the Sub-Fund’s portfolio, due to the invasion of Ukraine and the decision by the Russian state to forbid transactions by foreigners on Russian listed stocks. OSSIAM, as management company of the Sub-Fund, has decided to implement a fair value process and value the four (4) Russian stocks at zero (0) for the foreseeable future. The Russian stocks above-mentioned will be liquidated pursuant to the standard liquidation process as soon as transactions by foreigners on Russian listed stocks are no longer forbidden.


Please note that no specific action is expected from you in this respect. Liquidation proceeds which may not be distributed to their beneficiaries upon the implementation of the redemption will be deposited with the Caisse de Consignation (the Luxembourg public trust office) on behalf of the persons entitled thereto as soon as possible after the payment date. Should you require further information as to the action you should take with respect to the retrieval of funds from the Caisse de Consignation, please contact your final advisor.


From the date of this letter up to and including the Liquidation Date (the “Liquidation Period”), OSSIAM will seek to continue to manage the Fund in accordance with its investment objective and policy and in accordance with the UCITS rules as they apply in Luxembourg. However, in seeking to terminate the Fund in shareholders’ best interests the Fund may not always be compliant with its investment objective and policy or with the UCITS rules during the Liquidation Period.


Shareholders are also informed that the next Prospectus will take into account the liquidation of the Sub- Fund.


Shareholders are informed that, by derogation of the provisions contained in the Prospectus in the Chapter entitled “Charges and Expenses”, the liquidation expenses shall not be borne by the shareholders of the Sub-Fund but will be borne by OSSIAM, acting as management company of the Company.


Any further information in relation to the termination of the Sub-Fund may be obtained by sending an email to


Yours faithfully,


The Board of directors of Ossiam Lux
