A number of Fund Managers have told us that they have had to temporarily suspend trades on their funds. At this point, we don’t know when the suspensions will be lifted.
This means that you won’t be able to make any payments into the fund, switch, transfer or sell out of it while the suspension is in place.
Any regular payments will be paid into your product cash account instead of the fund when the suspension is in place. When the suspension is lifted, your regular payments will be made into the fund.

Decisions like this are not uncommon. They are usually made to protect the investors in the fund.
