How will the move impact investors?

Upon recovery of money from Altico Capital India in the segregated portfolio, whether partial or full, it will be distributed to the investors in proportion to their holding in the segregated portfolio.

No subscription and redemption will be allowed in the segregated portfolio of the captioned schemes.

Investors redeeming their units will get redemption proceeds based on the NAV of main portfolio and will continue to hold the units of segregated portfolio. However, investors subscribing to the scheme will be allotted units only in the main portfolio based on its NAV.

The AMC will enable listing of units of segregated portfolio on the recognized stock exchange within 10 working days of creation of segregated portfolio and enable transfer of such units on receipt of transfer requests.
