Illiquid assets and open ended funds

Although some exposure to illiquid assets may offer the opportunity for medium to long term growth within a diversified portfolio, funds investing in them may experience difficulties if investors wish to withdraw their money at short notice. The FCA has confirmed a set of regulatory changes designed to improve how managers of such funds deal with liquidity issues, particularly under stressed market conditions.

The changes will come into force from 30 September 2020 and will apply to non-UCITS retail schemes (NURS).
