EU Money Market Funds Fund Reform Update

Conversion date for LGIM Liquidity Fund Sub-Funds

On the 11th January 2019, the Central Bank of Ireland and the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier, Luxembourg published a joint statement on the treatment of share cancellation under the Regulation (EU) 2017/1131 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 June 2017 on money market funds (“MMFR”). The statement confirms that all use of share cancellation must cease by no later than 21 March 2019. Please see below for a link to the full statement.

As a result of this, the conversion of the LGIM money market funds under MMFR will now take place at a later date. Subject to regulatory approval, the revised conversion date will be no later than 21 March 2019. We are committed to keeping you informed and will advise you of the revised conversion date as soon as possible.
