For direct investments, you must submit a redemption form signed as appropriate by the underlying investor. Once you fax this to our administrator the instruction will be carried out that dealing day if received before 3pm (Dublin Time), otherwise it will be carried out the next dealing day. Please note that no payment will be made until the administrator has received the original redemption form in the post.
