Trading suspensions affecting commercial property funds (7 July 2016)

As you may be aware, a number of commercial property funds have taken the decision to suspend trading over the past few days. This means that investors are unable to buy or sell investments within these funds until further notice. These trading suspensions will also affect investors in LV= insured funds which are invested in the following funds:

  • LV= M&G Property Portfolio
  • LV= Henderson UK Property Authorised Investment Fund
  • LV= Columbia Threadneedle UK Property Authorised Investment Fund

As LV= is no longer able to buy or sell units in the underlying funds at this time, any requests for LV= to invest funds, withdraw funds or involving a switch to or from these funds cannot, therefore, be processed at present.

We will be writing to all advisers and customers directly affected by this over the next few days to set out the options going forward in respect of these funds. We are also in contact with the underlying fund manager to try to get an understanding of when trading in the funds is likely to recommence. At the moment all of the funds have stated that they will review the position in early August (28 days from the suspension of trading).

If you have any queries regarding this, please speak to your usual LV= Sales contact or call the Retirement Desk on 08000 850250
