The funds described in the following pages are administered and managed by companies
within the Northern Trust Group (“Northern Trust”) and can be marketed in certain
jurisdictions only. It is your responsibility to be aware of the applicable laws and
regulations of your country of residence. Further information is available in the
Prospectus or other constitutional document for each fund.
The contents of this site have been prepared solely for informational purposes. None
of the information contained in this site constitutes an offer to buy or sell or is
a solicitation to buy or sell any security, product, service or investment, nor does
any opinion expressed on this site constitute a recommendation or investment advice.
The funds described are not available for distribution to or investment by US investors.
The shares will not be registered under the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended
(the "Securities Act") and may not be directly or indirectly offered or sold in the
USA or any of its territories or possessions or areas subject to its jurisdiction
or to or for the benefit of a US Person. By accessing this part of the site you confirm
that you are not a "US Person" (within the meaning of Regulation S under the Securities
Act) and are located outside the US.
The following describes important information about Northern Trust's Irish-domiciled
funds (the "Irish Funds") and should be read carefully before investing. If you have
questions or concerns about the contents of the Prospectus of an Irish Fund or the
suitability of an investment for your particular situation you should consult your
bank manager, solicitor, accountant or other financial adviser.
The Irish Funds have been authorised by the Central Bank of Ireland (the “Central
Bank”) as Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities. This
authorisation however, does not constitute a warranty by the Central Bank as to the
performance of the Irish Funds and the Central Bank shall not be liable for the performance
or default of an Irish Fund. Authorisation of an Irish Fund is not an endorsement
or guarantee of the Irish Fund by the Central Bank nor is the Central Bank responsible
for the contents of this website.
Potential subscribers and purchasers of shares in an Irish Fund should inform themselves
as to (a) the possible tax consequences, (b) the legal requirements, (c) any foreign
exchange restrictions or exchange control requirements, and (d) any other requisite
governmental regulatory or other consents or formalities which they might encounter
under the laws of the countries of their incorporation, citizenship, residence or
domicile and which might be relevant to the subscription, purchase, holding or disposal
of such shares.
The distribution of the Prospectus of each Irish Fund and the offering or purchase
of its shares may be restricted in certain jurisdictions. No person receiving a copy
of the Prospectus or subscription form of an Irish Fund in any such jurisdiction may
treat the Prospectus or the subscription form as constituting an invitation to that
person to subscribe for shares, nor should that person in any event use the subscription
form, unless in the relevant jurisdiction such an invitation could lawfully be made
to that person and the subscription form could lawfully be used without requiring
compliance with any registration or other legal obligations. Accordingly, the Prospectus
of an Irish Fund does not constitute an offer or solicitation by anyone in any jurisdiction
in which such offer or solicitation is not lawful or in which the person making such
offer or solicitation is not qualified to do so or to anyone to whom it is unlawful
to make such offer or solicitation.
The Central Bank has neither reviewed nor in any way commented upon the fund documentation
of Northern Trust's non-Irish-domiciled funds. No public offer is made of such funds
within the meaning of applicable Irish law. The documentation of such funds has not
been prepared in accordance with the laws of Ireland. The documents have not been
reviewed, approved or authorised by any regulatory authority or exchange in Ireland
and therefore may not contain all the information required where a document is prepared
pursuant to applicable Irish laws.
The Irish Funds have not been registered with the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority
(Sw. Finansinspektionen), pursuant to Chapter 1 Section 7 of the Swedish Investment
Funds Act 2004 (Sw. lag (2004:46) om investeringsfonder). Accordingly, the Irish Funds
may not be marketed or sold in Sweden for the purposes of the Investment Funds Act
and applications to subscribe or redeem Shares in the Irish Funds will only be considered
if sent directly to the Irish Funds outside Sweden.
The Irish Funds are not available for distribution through this website to any type
of investors in the Netherlands.
