    M&G Property Portfolio funds - update on distribution of money

    M&G will be making a series of capital payments, as and when they manage to sell the funds’ assets. We have now received the second capital payment from M&G of 12.65% (for Pension funds) of the total net asset value of the funds, as at 9 May 2024.

    What do you need to do?

    We received the second capital payment from M&G on 9 May 2024 and are now calculating your clients’ share of the money and paying it into their policies. 

    • If you have already advised us of an instruction for where to invest the payments from M&G, then we're paying it into that fund and no further action is needed.
    • If we didn't get an instruction from you, we're paying it into the Phoenix Wealth Legal & General Property fund. 

    If you wish to switch to a different fund, then please tell us as soon as possible.

    For non self-invested policies

    • Please use My requests on online services to send us your instructions and choose the “Non-standard fund switch/redirect” drop-down option. This is the quickest way - here's how
    • If you’re not registered for online services, please send us your instructions by emailing us at drawdown@phoenixwealth.co.uk or write to us at: Phoenix Wealth, PO Box 1393, Peterborough, PE2 2TP

    For self-invested policies

    • We need your instructions to be on company headed paper and signed by the adviser named on the policy. For clarity, please specify “I’d like you to pay my client’s share of the M&G Property portfolio fund sale proceeds into [fund name of your choice]” and include the policy number. Please scan and email them to us at isd@sipp-phoenixwealth.co.uk

    What happens next?

    We will continue to update this ‘News and views’ section of our website, as and when M&G release further payments. Please check back regularly for any further updates.
