HANetf adopts ICSD Settlement Model for six ETFs


HANetf ICAV is to convert its Irish domiciled exchange-traded funds (ETFs), currently held in the CREST system, to an International Central Securities Depository (ICSD) model via Euroclear Bank.

Holdings in the CREST system in the Converting Funds will be replaced by CREST Depository Interests (CDIs). CDIs operate under the terms of the CREST International Settlement Links Service. The CDIs will carry the same ISIN. The securities will be disabled from settlement at 18:00 BST on Friday, 31 July 2020 and re-enabled in CDI format as soon as practical on Monday, 3 Aug 2020, after the transfer to Euroclear Bank has been completed.

The switch to the ICSD model enables investors to benefit from a more efficient post-trade, infrastructure, reducing the likelihood of settlement delays or failures and enhancing the secondary market tradability of the ETFs. The move also removes the need for DE ISINs when ETFs are traded between UK and German markets.  When you trade ETFs your capital is at risk.

The following ETFs will convert to the ICSD model:

EMQQ Emerging Markets Internet & Ecommerce UCITS ETF – Accumulating
HAN-GINS Cloud Technology UCITS ETF – Accumulating
HAN-GINS Tech Megatrend Equal Weight UCITS ETF  Accumulating
KMEFIC FTSE Kuwait Equity UCITS ETF – Accumulating
The Medical Cannabis and Wellness UCITS ETF – Accumulating
HAN-GINS Indxx Healthcare Innovation UCITS ETF – Accumulating
