Purpose

COLL 7.1.3G

  1. (1)

    This chapter helps to achieve the statutory objective of protecting investors by ensuring they do not buy or redeem units at a price that cannot be calculated accurately. For instance, due to unforeseen circumstances, it may be impossible to value, or to dispose of and obtain payment for, all or some of the scheme property of an authorised fund or sub-fund. COLL 7.2.1 R(Requirement) sets out the circumstances in which an authorised fund manager must or may suspend dealings in units and the manner in which a suspension takes effect.

  2. (2)

    This chapter also helps with the statutory objective of protecting consumers, by providing a cost effective and fair means of winding up authorised funds and terminating sub-funds of ICVCs3, AUTs and co-ownership schemes3. EG 141(Collective investment schemes) deals with the FCA's powers to revoke the authorisation of authorised funds otherwise than by consent.
