We are proposing changes to the Constitution of Janus Henderson Capital Funds plc (the “Company”). The Company is an investment vehicle that contains several sub-funds.
It is proposed to amend the Constitution to allow the Company to appoint a UCITS management company (a “ManCo”) to assist the Company with the management of its affairs and to allow the Company to convert from a self-managed investment company to an externally managed investment company in the future. In addition, it is proposed to separate the transfer agency function from the administration services provided by the Administrator and appoint a transfer agent to process subscriptions and redemptions and to assist with investor servicing.
We are seeking Shareholder approval of the adoption of the amended Constitution.
In order to obtain Shareholder approval for this change, the Directors have decided to convene an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) of the Company to take place on 18 May 2020 at which a special resolution to approve the change of the Constitution will be proposed. The notice of the EGM and other applicable documents can be found below.
The form of proxy accompanying the notice of the EGM should be completed and returned in accordance with the instructions thereon, to be received as soon as possible and in any event, not later than 48 hours before the time fixed for the holding of the EGM.
The results of the EGM vote will be available on Janus Henderson’s website at www.janushenderson.com.
Should you have any questions relating to these matters, you should either contact your investment consultant, tax adviser and/or legal adviser as appropriate.
