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

    Following the announcement of the closure of the M&G Property Portfolio fund (and its feeder fund), M&G will be making a series of capital payments, as and when they manage to sell the funds’ assets. We’re expecting to receive an initial payment from M&G between 8 -13 February 2024. Here’s an update on when and how the first payments will be paid out.

    What’s happening?

    Following the announcement of the closure of the M&G Property Portfolio funds, M&G will make an initial payment, between 8 - 13 February 2024. M&G intend to make further payments as asset sales are completed, and anticipate these capital payments to take place on a quarterly basis. M&G expect it will take approximately 18 months for the majority of the portfolio to be sold, but this could take longer.

    What do you need to do?

    When we receive a capital payment from M&G, we'll calculate your clients’ share of the money and will pay it into their policies. To do that, we need you to tell us which fund your clients would like us to invest these payments into 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

    If you don’t send us an instruction, or if we don’t get it before we receive the first payment from M&G, we will pay it into the Phoenix Wealth L&G UK Property fund. 

    What happens next?

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

    Where can I find out more?
