As of 16 January 2015, the units in the Charity Fixed Interest Fund have been replaced by units in the Income Trust for Charities.  The larger combined fund benefits from economies of scale and thereby a reduction in administration expense.  The investment objective of the funds is comparable, with the Income Trust for Charities benefiting from more flexible investment parameters, something that we are attracted to in the current market environment.  We therefore believe the merger is in our charity clients' best interests.
