• From 1 February 2017, ICG Enterprise Trust will no longer be an investment option for new investors through the F&C Savings Plans. 

    How does this affect me?

     As an existing investor you can retain your shares and continue to buy further shares within your savings plan either by monthly direct debit, lump sum and /or dividend reinvestment. If you hold more than one savings plan then you will only be able to buy ICG Enterprise Trust shares in the plan that already holds them. 

    What do I need to do? 

    You do not need to do anything as your savings plan will continue as before. However, please be aware that these changes may affect the investment choices you wish to make when considering a new savings plan in the future. 

    Online Service 

    As investors setting up new savings plans will not be able to invest in ICG Enterprise Trust we have had to remove this as an option from our online service. This unfortunately means that those of you who transact online will no longer be able to buy ICG Enterprise Trust shares through this service. You will also not be able to set up or amend direct debits into this Trust online. You can still login to view the value of your shares and transact on other investment trusts (where applicable). 

    How do I buy more shares in ICG Enterprise Trust?

    To make a payment by lump sum – You can send us a cheque along with a completed Top Up Form. 

    To start a new direct debit – You can send us a completed Top Up Form along with verification of the bank account the payments will come from (this is explained further on the Top Up Form). 

    To amend the amount or fund choice of an existing direct debit – You can complete our Change of Investment Instruction Form.  

    Dividend reinvestment – Dividends are automatically paid out to you or reinvested to buy more shares shortly after the dividend payment date. If you wish to change how your dividends are treated please send an instruction signed by all account holders to confirm this. Dividends from all Investment Trusts held within your savings plan will be treated in the same way. If your account is a Child Trust Fund or Junior ISA dividends cannot be paid out to you.

Stock market and currency movements may cause the values to fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Income from investments may fluctuate. Income payments may constitute a return of capital in whole or in part. Income may be achieved by foregoing future capital growth. Changes in rates of exchange may have an adverse effect on the value, price or income of investments. This trust invests in unlisted securities and their potential volatility may increase the risk to the value of, and the income from the investment. If markets fall, gearing can magnify the negative impact on performance.
