Methods of units redemption and conversion (personal customers only) If units acquired under different transactions (different packages) are recorded in the same register, it may be important which of them are to be redeemed since different purchase prices and different purchase dates may have an influence on the tax and charges payable. If units were acquired in a single transaction (one package) the redemption method is irrelevant, similarly as in the case of redemption of the entire register when all unit packages are redeemed. If a number of unit packages are recorded in a register, the units are redeemed by packages depending on the redemption order size one by one, until the whole transaction is executed.

If, as a result of conversion, the remaining number or value of units in the register is lower than the minimum required by the fund statutes, all units from that register will be redeemed. The same effect may be obtained when the participation units in the source fund are first redeemed and then participation units of the target fund are acquired, however, a conversion order offers a number of additional benefits: a single conversion order will be executed faster than two consecutive orders, an upfront fee may be charged in respect of a redemption order, in the case of conversion, a differential distribution fee will never be higher than the acquisition fee, in the case of conversion to a fund with the same level of distribution fee, the distribution fee will not be charged, in the case of conversion to a fund with a lower distribution fee, the distribution fee will not be charged, in the case of first conversion to a fund with a higher distribution fee, the distribution fee will be charged, however, only in the amount equivalent to the difference between the fee rates in the source and target funds, after returning to the source fund through another conversion to a given register (for example, 1% rate >>0% rate>>1% rate) the distribution fee will not be charged. How to define the redemption or conversion volume? When placing redemption and conversion orders, their volume may be defined in four ways: Number of units. Specify the number of units which are to be redeemed. As a result of redemption, you will receive the amount of money which is a result of multiplication of a number of units and unit value, after deducting the tax and applicable fees, if any. In the case of conversion, the resulting amount, after deducting the income tax, differential distribution fee and additional charges, if any, will be used to pay for participation units of another fund. Gross amount. In the case of redemption, the register balance is reduced by the number of units equivalent to the order value. The amount specified in the order will be reduced by the potential taxes and charges. In the case of conversion, the amount will be used to pay for the purchase of participation units of another fund. Net amount. In the case of redemption, you will receive the amount specified in the order. The balance of the register is reduced by the number of units equivalent to an amount specified in the order plus the potential taxes and fees, so that after
18 deducting the taxes and fees the net amount is obtained. In the case of conversion, the resulting net amount (after redemption of the respective number of participation units and deducting the differential distribution fee and additional fee, if any) will be used to pay for participation units of another fund. Entire register. All units recorded in the register will be redeemed or converted. How to view orders?
