To news & knowledge overview

Kempen Capital Management (KCM) has decided the Global Small-cap Strategy has now reached the soft-close status.

01 April 2021

The Kempen Global Small-cap Strategy has experienced significant growth in its Assets Under Management (AuM). This has caused a situation where current AuM and projected inflow are within our maximum capacity range. To protect existing shareholders and in line with our corporate policy, the management of Kempen Capital Management (KCM) has decided the Global Small-cap Strategy has now reached the soft-close status.

The soft-close status means there are restrictions on new subscriptions in this strategy. KCM has decided to implement the following matters as of April 1st 2021 in this strategy:

  • In principle KCM will disallow any investment from new investors (investors with no investment in the strategy as of April 1st 2021).
  • In principle KCM will continue to accept regular daily flows from investors who were already invested in the strategy.
  • Investors that would like to make large investments are kindly requested to contact their relationship manager at Kempen first.
  • In the interest of the fund and its investors KCM has the discretion to disallow any investment if the inflow exceeds the at forehand reserved extra AuM capacity per client and/or on strategy level.

The terms under which clients may redeem their holdings will not be affected.

Managing the capacity of a small cap strategy is a dynamic process. We will keep you informed on any developments that might lead us to review our current position.

We apologize for any inconvenience these constraints may cause to you. Please contact your relationship manager or visit our website for more information
