Notice of the changes to Index and Fund Name of the Funds with effect from 30 November 2018, or such later date as the Central Bank notes the revised Supplements to the Prospectus for the Fund (the "Effective Date"). 

 

The below changes are being implemented as a result of a decision by the provider of the Indices which the Portfolios track, MSCI Inc. ("MSCI"), to change the global industry classification standard ("GICS") structure. As part of this change, the Telecommunication Services sector is being broadened and renamed as the Communication Services sector. With effect from 3rd December 2018, the relevant Indices will consist of companies in the Communication Services sector and accordingly, the fund name, investment objective, investment policy of the Portfolios and indices are being updated to align with this.
