Overview

NOTIFICATION OF DEALING SUSPENSION

Important information about the Janus Henderson UK Property PAIF (the Fund) and Janus Henderson UK Property PAIF Feeder Fund (the Feeder)

The Board of Henderson Investment Funds Limited has today been advised by CBRE, the appointed independent valuer of the Fund, that with immediate effect they have material uncertainty around the valuation of UK physical properties across the market, and therefore by inference the assets in the portfolio, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This material uncertainty extends across all UK property fund valuations issued by CBRE and was agreed to by all independent fund valuers. Given this uncertainty, the Board of Henderson Investment Funds Limited has decided to temporarily suspend dealings in the Janus Henderson UK Property PAIF and its associated Janus Henderson UK Property PAIF Feeder Fund to protect the interests of all investors. This decision is consistent with the new rules issued by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Further details are set out below.

Dealing requests received since the 12 noon valuation point on 16 March 2020 will not be accepted during the suspension period. The decision to suspend dealing was taken in agreement with the Funds’ Depositary and the FCA has been informed.

Background to the suspension

The suspension has been implemented to safeguard the interests of all investors. We have historically maintained a cash position to meet a reasonable level of redemptions (17.4% as at 29 February 2020). However, the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has created significant market uncertainty. This in turn has led the valuer of the Fund’s direct property portfolio – CBRE – to declare that there is material uncertainty of valuations in relation to all direct property assets owned by the Fund. Given this material uncertainty and considering the FCA’s updated rules in this regard, we believe we need to protect the interests of all investors by suspending dealing in the Fund and the Feeder.

The dealing suspension will allow the valuer to better understand the impact that the coronavirus crisis is having on direct property market valuations.

What happens now?

  • Redemption requests, subscription requests, switches and transfers will not be accepted during the suspension period.
  • For investors who are directly invested in the Fund or the Feeder through Janus Henderson, the portion of any regular savings that would normally be invested will not be collected during the suspension period. Normal collections will resume once the Fund and Feeder re-open to dealing.
  • We will continue valuing the Fund and Feeder during suspension so indicative prices will continue to be reported.
  • The Fund will continue to be actively managed and all fund reporting will continue as normal.
  • Ongoing charges and transaction costs will be applied as normal.
  • Income distributions will continue throughout the period of suspension.
  • Income reinvestments will not be possible and monies will instead be paid to investors during the suspension period (via cheque or bank transfer). Accumulation class holders will not be affected.

When might the funds re-open?

We shall announce a date for the re-opening of the Fund and Feeder when this period of material uncertainty has passed and property valuations are more certain. We will endeavour to satisfy ourselves that the funds will not face re-suspension in the short term. We will notify clients ahead of the re-opening. The suspension will cease as soon as practicable and will be formally reviewed at least every 28 days. Regular updates will be provided via our website.

Outlook

We are confident about the quality of the Fund’s portfolio, which continues to offer investors a steady and attractive stream of rental income along with the potential for some capital and income growth over time. Our approach remains to own high-quality properties, seeking robust tenants on long leases in good locations, which in many cases look set to benefit from long-term structural shifts in the market. Please note, the value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount originally invested.

We are acutely aware of the frustration that the dealing suspension may cause you and would like to thank you for your patience during this challenging period. We will, of course, keep you up to date with any significant developments and will include additional information on our website at hgi.co/property-paif.

If you have any queries about the suspension or require any further information, please contact your financial adviser or call our Client Services Team on 0800 832 832 between 9.00am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday.

Documents

  • ​The value of the Funds and the income from them is not guaranteed and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you originally invested.
  • ​Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
  • ​You should note that your tax treatment in relation to any investments held outside an ISA will depend on your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. Governments may change the tax rules which affect you or the Funds in which you have invested.
  • ​If you invest through a third party provider you are advised to consult them directly as charges, performance and terms and conditions may differ materially.
  • Third party data is believed to be reliable, but its completeness and accuracy is not guaranteed.
  • If a Fund has a high exposure to a particular country or geographical region it carries a higher level of risk than a Fund which is more broadly diversified.
  • The Fund may use derivatives with the aim of reducing risk or managing the portfolio more efficiently. However this introduces other risks, in particular, that a derivative counterparty may not meet its contractual obligations.
  • This Fund is dual priced. The price at which you buy shares/units in the fund will incorporate the transaction costs incurred in buying physical properties. When you sell shares/units in the Fund the price you sell at incorporates the transaction costs incurred in selling physical properties. The difference between these prices is called the ‘spread'. This spread is currently c. 5% and reflects the high transaction costs of buying and selling commercial property. Typically the buying price of an individual commercial property can be 7-8% higher than the selling price. The spread of the Fund is not fixed and may vary over time depending on the composition of the Fund.
  • Valuations are determined by independent property experts. The valuation of property is generally a matter of valuer's opinion. The amount raised when a property is sold may be less than the valuation.
  • The Fund contains assets which may be hard to value or sell at the time and price intended. In particular, property investments may take a considerable time to sell. When many investors want to sell their shares, the Fund may have to delay processing requests so that certain assets or properties can be sold first. This is known as deferring redemptions.
  • Tenants in the Fund's properties may become unable to pay their rent. As a result, the Fund's income may be impacted and further costs incurred.
  • Some or all of the Annual Management Charge and other costs of the Fund may be taken from capital, which may erode capital or reduce potential for capital growth.
  • The Fund could lose money if a counterparty with which it trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the Fund.
  • Funds incur costs as a necessary part of buying and selling the underlying investments, these are otherwise known as portfolio transaction costs, and include charges such as broker commission and Stamp Duty. View the portfolio transaction costs across the Henderson UK Fund range.
  • For detailed product information including the risks associated with investing please read the relevant Prospectus or Annual Report.
  • Before investing in any of our funds you should satisfy yourself as to the suitability and the risks involved, you may wish to consult a financial adviser.
