Columbia Threadneedle Investments is working to prepare for the UK’s departure from the European Union. Our aim is to provide certainty and continuity for our customers, regardless of the final Brexit outcome. We are actively engaging with our industry association and other relevant bodies to ensure we are abreast of the latest intelligence as well as any relevant industry views and plans.
We have a comprehensive plan in place to minimise disruption to our customers, our funds and our business, even in the event of a “no deal” Brexit.
For UK-based investors in our SICAV1 funds, there is currently nothing to suggest that UK investors won’t be able to hold SICAVs after the UK leaves the EU. We continue to monitor this situation.
Information regarding the transfer of EU customer assets from our UK fund range to equivalent funds in our Luxembourg range can be found here.
If you are unclear about the impact of Brexit on the status of your investment, or have further questions, please call us on 0800 953 0134 (calls may be recorded). Our team is available from 8.00am to 6.00pm (UK time), Monday to Friday.
1 SICAV stands for société d’investissement à capital variable, which is simply French for “investment company with variable capital”.
