The LGUTM Board has now decided that the exceptional circumstances which caused the Funds’ continued suspension no longer apply and we have reopened the fund on 13th October 2020.

    During the period following the EU referendum (June to September 2016) the manager applied fair value adjustments to the property values in the fund. The fair value adjustments marked down the value of the properties to reflect what the manager believed to be fair value of the properties until the valuation agent regained confidence in the property valuations.

    Key risks

    The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up, you may not get back the amount you originally invested.

    Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

    The Fund invests in assets that may at times be hard to sell. This means that there may be occasions when you experience a delay or receive less than you might otherwise expect when selling your investment.

    The fund manager runs a fund to meet its objective and you should expect a fund's investments to change over time. The fund's level of risk may also change in the future. At times it may be difficult for the fund to make investments or sell assets to meet investors’ requests to buy/sell shares. Where this occurs the fund may experience reduced investment performance for a period or have difficulty paying proceeds to investors who wish to sell shares. Property can be difficult to buy or sell. This could mean: cash builds up waiting to be invested, so the fund will underperform when property returns are greater than the interest earned; and/or property may have to be sold for less than expected. If an exceptional amount of withdrawals are requested, the fund manager may be forced to sell properties quickly. This could mean that properties are sold for less than expected which would reduce the value of your investment. In times of market uncertainty or if an exceptional amount of withdrawals are requested it may become less easy for your fund to sell properties and the Manager may defer withdrawals, or suspend dealing. The Manager can only delay paying out if it is in the interests of all investors and with the permission of the fund trustee or depositary. Rental growth is not guaranteed and unpaid rent could affect the performance of your investment. The value of property is generally a matter of valuer’s opinion rather than fact and the true value of a property may not be recognised until the property is sold. In certain circumstances we may not be able to obtain a valuer's opinion and will apply our own valuation. The fund will undertake development of properties where the full benefits of any increases in the value of the property or the income earned from it are not received until completion. While any development is taking place, the fund is at risk from delays, increased costs or not achieving the predicted improvement in increasing the value of the property or rent received.

    The fund could lose money if any institution providing services such as acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the fund.

    Derivatives are highly sensitive to changes in the value of the asset on which they are based and can increase the size of losses and gains.
