Why Colonial First State proposes to retire as Responsible Entity
Given the sale of First Sentier Investors to MUFG, Colonial First State believes that it is appropriate to retire as the responsible entity of the Funds and to appoint The Trust Company (RE Services) Limited (Trust Company) as the new responsible entity.
Colonial First State has carefully considered the proposed appointment of Trust Company and conducted a thorough due diligence of Trust Company's operational, compliance and governance framework, and considers that the appointment is in the best interests of Unitholders of the Funds.
If you have any questions about your investment or the role of the responsible entity, we encourage you to speak with your financial adviser.
If you require further information or have questions about voting or the upcoming Meeting, please contact Colonial First State on 13 13 36 or at colonialfirststate.com.au.
