Legal Documents for Investors
Before investing in a fund offered by Dimensional Fund Advisors Ltd., every interested investor should read the relevant prospectus. The prospectus contains complete information about the funds, their investment policies, their fees, investment risks, and other information that prospective investors should know before investing in these funds. Dimensional Fund Advisors Ltd. offers two families of funds to eligible UK resident investors. Dimensional Funds ICVC is an Open-Ended Investment Company (OEIC) with variable capital incorporated with limited liability in England and Wales and authorised by the UK Financial Conduct Authority. Dimensional Funds PLC and Dimensional Funds II PLC are both constituted as an investment company with variable capital under the laws of Ireland and authorised by the Irish Central Bank. Dimensional Funds ICVC, Dimensional Funds PLC, and Dimensional Funds II PLC are each authorised pursuant to the European Communities (Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities) Regulations, 2011 as an Undertaking for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS).
European Union law requires a Key Investor Information Document (“KIID”) to be made available for each share class in each of the UCITS funds offered by Dimensional Fund Advisors Ltd. As a result of the implementation of the KIIDs, Simplified Prospectuses will no longer be produced. The KIID, which is a two-page document written in plain language, contains material information about the relevant fund such as its investment objective, investment policies, risks and fees, and if applicable, past performance. Before investing in a UCITS fund offered by Dimensional Fund Advisors Ltd., all interested investors should read the relevant KIID(s) in good time prior to making a decision to invest in these funds. Where funds have been registered for public distribution in other countries the KIIDs have been translated into the official language acceptable to the financial services regulator of those countries. The FCA has introduced an additional requirement for firms that sell funds to retail investors to disclose certain information. Alongside the KIID, it is also a financial advisor’s obligation to provide details of complaints handling, FSCS compensation arrangements, and cancellation rights to its retail clients when selling a unit/share in one of our UCITS. The Supplementary Information Document is designed to be read in conjunction with the KIID.
