2. Setting up Fund Hierarchies
2.1
Introduction
After you have set up reference data that you will use to operate your funds, you must define
the funds in the system, and set up the rules that each fund will be governed by. These rules
will be automatically applied by the system whenever you enter a transaction into the system
that has been requested by an investor into the fund.
This chapter will help you use the FCIS system to set up and operate funds.
2.2
Fund and Investor
A fund is, typically, a money pool that is accumulated through the contributions of persons
who are interested in investing their capital in this manner, with a view to obtaining either
steady incomes with periodic returns or steady appreciation of the capital. These interested
persons are typically called investors or unit holders.
The fund gives the investors an acknowledgment of their stake in the money pool by issuing
units to them, and invests their contributions into the securities market. The returns earned
by the fund on this investment is distributed to the investors either in the form of dividends
when a dividend is declared by the fund administrators, or in the form of capital appreciation
when the investors sell their holdings back to the fund.
Funds can be of various types depending upon their processing guidelines, their expected
returns for the investor, pricing guidelines, and so on. Therefore, funds will differ widely in any
or all of these characteristics.
Funds differ widely in any or all of the following:

Operational guidelines

Investment offer patterns

The structure of the fees and other loads that are charged or the incentives that are
given.

Pricing policies: The price of the fund on a given business day is known as the NAV (Net
Asset Value) for the fund. It is a measure of the net worth of a single asset (or unit) in
the fund. It is also the rate that is available to the investors at which they may buy into
the fund or sell out of the fund, at any given time.
The fund price is a reflection of the value of the assets in the fund, and so it is rarely constant.
Depending upon the frequency at which the fund administrators declare this price, funds may
be, accordingly, either pre-priced or post-priced.

Certificate guidelines: Some funds give investors certificates representing their holdings
in the money pool. Such funds are known as scrip-based, certificate-based or simply,
certificate funds. Some funds only give the investors an acknowledgment of their
holdings, in terms of the number of units held and their prevalent value. Such funds are
termed scrip-less funds.
Funds could also be grouped together based on common investment options, either as fund
families or as umbrella funds.
Sometimes, asset managers create a tree-structure of associated funds, which may be similar
in their investment options. Investors are allowed to invest in any level of the tree-structure.
Such fund structures are called umbrella funds.
2-1
2.3
Setting up Fund
In Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor Servicing, you set up a fund in the system as follows:
1. First, you set up any necessary fund hierarchies, either fund families or umbrella funds.
2. You set up the different guidelines according to which any investment in the funds will be
processed.
3. Have another user authorize the fund.
2.4
Setting up Fund Hierarchy
The system provides the facility of maintaining and processing umbrella funds as well as nonumbrella type of fund families. Therefore, a hierarchy of funds may be set up with fund rule
profiles at each level except the lowest level.
Before you actually set up a fund in the system, you must first set up the kind of hierarchy that
you require. You can do so by setting up the following:
Fund Families
First, you set up the lowest levels in the fund hierarchy. The fund families created here may
be designated either as umbrella funds or non-umbrella funds. For an umbrella fund, you
must maintain at least three levels.
Creation of the hierarchy for an umbrella fund is facilitated by this fund rule. Each umbrella
fund has one sub-fund associated with it and each sub-fund has at least one share class
associated with it. This makes up a complete hierarchy.
Share Class Definition
You can define the share classes that will be the last level in the hierarchy of funds. Each

3. Setting up Fund Rules (I)
3.1
What is Fund Rule?
In Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor Servicing, each fund that the AMC wishes to maintain can be
entered into the system database.
Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor Servicing enables you to specify a set of logically grouped
guidelines for each fund, which pertain to aspect of the method of operation of the fund. Each
of these logically grouped sets of guidelines is distinct and unique, and is called a ‘fund rule’.
For each fund, you can maintain a complete set of such guidelines or ‘fund rules’. The options
chosen by the AMC in specifying each of the rules will be directives to the system for the
operation of the fund. Therefore, Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor Servicing processes each
transaction in a fund according to the fund rules that you maintain for the fund.
Whenever you need to refer to any or all guidelines about the operation of a fund, you can
refer to the fund rule records that you have maintained for the fund.
Some fund rules are mandatory and you must set them up before you authorize a fund, while
others are optional, and you may be set up as and when required.
There are many different fund rules that may be defined for a fund and these may be
enumerated as follows:
Fund Demographics
This is the entry point for setting up a fund in the system. The Fund name, Fund ID, the base
currency for the fund, the country that the fund is based in and the effective date for the fund
rules may be set here. You can also designate the Type and the Class that the fund comes
under. You can specify the AMC that operates the fund.
This is a mandatory fund rule, and you must set it up before you authorize a fund.
Corporate Actions
In this section, you can specify the rules that will govern the pattern of processing corporate
actions for the fund. This includes the income distribution by the fund to its unit holders. .
These rules include the Dividend Declaration and Payment frequencies, the Default
Distribution Mode, Tax Deducted at Source (TDS) details, the lead times for the different
dates such as the Book Closing, Freeze Holdings, and Dividend Payment dates.
Setting up this rule is optional, and you can set it up for a fund as and when required. It is
recommended that you set it up before you authorize the fund.
For corporate actions such as dividend, you can set up individual, separate rules for
processing cash dividend as well as stock dividends for the same fund.
General Operating Rules
In this section, you can designate the rules that will govern the operation of the fund. You can
specify the frequency at which the fund price is declared. You can also designate a fund to
have automatic redemption.
This is a mandatory fund rule, and you must set it up before you authorize a fund.
3-1
Shares Characteristics
These rules govern the features of shares that are issued in the fund. You can designate a
fund as scrip-less fund or a scrip-based fund that issues certificates. The limits on the number
of unit holders that must be allowed to subscribe to the fund and the ceiling on the capital that
may be issued by the fund may also be specified in this rule. You can set up the standard lot,
the maximum and minimum certificate denominations and the issue number range. You can
also set up the limits for Foreign Investors in the fund, either as an amount or as a percentage
of the issued share capital.
This is a mandatory fund rule, and you must set it up before you authorize a fund.
Transaction Processing Rules
These rules govern the parameters by which each transaction is processed in the fund, and
these rules may be set up according to each transaction type. These parameters typically
include the ranges of volumes allowed for each transaction type, the range of periods and
times for the processing of a transaction, the processing policy for each transaction type and
the base price definition types and factors. You may enable or disable a transaction type as
the requirement may be.
This is a mandatory fund rule, and you must set it up before you authorize a fund.
Setting up the Amount/Units Limits for Investor Categories
The limits in the volume of investment for each category of investors can be setup using this
fund rule. This is a sub-rule that you can maintain as part of the Transaction Processing Rules
rule.
Setting up the Amount/Units Limits for Communication Modes
The limits in the volume of investment for each communication mode can be set up using this
fund rule. This is a sub-rule that you can maintain as part of the Transaction Processing Rules
rule.
Setting up the Amount/Units Limits for Investment and Standing Instructions
The limits in the volume of investment for initial investments and standing instructions can be
set up using this fund rule. This is a sub-rule that you can maintain as part of the Transaction
Processing Rules rule.
Fund Load Setup
These rules govern the ways in which an applicable fee or incentive will impact the processing
of transactions in the fund.
Setting up this rule is optional, and you can set it up for a fund as and when required. It is
recommended that you set it up before you authorize the fund.
Fund Formula Setup
This fund rule facilitates the specification of any expression that will be used in estimating the
base prices or the Net Asset Value for any transaction type.
Setting up this rule is optional, and you can set it up for a fund as and when required. It is
recommended that you set it up before you authorize the fund.
Fund Residency Restriction Setup
This fund rule enables the Fund Manager to make restrictions with respect to the nationality
of the unit holders who subscribe to the fund.
This is a mandatory fund rule, and you must set it up before you authorize a fund.
3-2
Fund Sale Country Setup
If some funds are not to be opened for investment in specific countries, restrictions can be
made in respect of that country, identifying that the fund cannot be sold in that country.
This is a mandatory fund rule, and you must set it up before you authorize a fund.
Fund Transaction Currencies Setup
The Fund Manager can also identify the currencies that the fund can transact in, and restrict
the use of other currencies for transactions. Therefore, each Fund can have a set of identified
currencies that may be used as transaction currencies, and other currencies may be
disallowed for transactions.
This is a mandatory fund rule, and you must set it up before you authorize a fund.
Specific Fund Price Date Setup
You can use this fund rule to specify specific price dates to be operable at a specific frequency
for certain transaction types, for a fund. Setting up the specific price date is an optional fund
rule, and may be edited, authorized or amended just as the other fund rules.
Amount Limits for IRA Transactions
For funds that form part of the investment portfolio of retirement products that you offer to
investors, and in which you have opted to allow investment into retirement accounts (IRA),
you can define the limits for the different kinds of transactions into such accounts that would
apply to the fund.
This is an optional rule, and must be maintained only in the event of IRA investment being
allowed for the fund.
Additional Information Setup
You can also maintain additional information for a fund, if additional information heads have
been maintained for the AMC, to be applicable for funds.
Though maintenance of additional information is not, strictly speaking, a fund rule, you can
only maintain the information through the Fund Demographics screen, when you are setting
up a fund, along with all the other fund rules.
3.2
Setting up Fund Rules
You can set up the fund rules for a fund in the ‘Fund Rules Detail’ screen. You can invoke this
screen by typing ‘UTDFNDRL’ in the field at the top right corner of the Application tool bar and
clicking on the adjoining arrow button. The ‘Fund Rules Detail’ screen is displayed.

Click on any of the links to invoke the corresponding setup screen for any of the other fund
rules. For instance, to set up Corporate Actions for the fund, click on the Corporate Actions
link. The name, and ID of the fund is defaulted in each of the fund rule setup screen, from the
Fund Demographics record.

defining other important rules and details for the fund:

The Name of the fund and the unique ID that must be used by the system to identify the
fund.

The Start Date and the Rule Effective Date. The Start Date is the date after which the
fund is open for transactions. The Rule Effective Date is the date after which the fund

In the case of cash dividends, the unit holders receive the dividend in monetary form. If an
income distribution setup record is defined for an investor, then the dividend received is
reinvested according to the framework of the same. Cash dividends could be declared for
capital gains or income.
In the case of stock dividends, the unit holders receive dividend in the form of units in addition
to their holdings as on the record date, which are reinvested in the same fund.
In Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor Servicing, you can define an individual corporate actions
record for each of the dividend types, in the Corporate Actions screen. For a fund, if both cash
and stock dividends are declared, a separate Corporate Actions profile must be set up for
each of the dividend types.

Let us suppose that the dividend earned by an investor, Mrs. Laurie Klein, in the ABC Growth
Fund is 700.679263 currency units, and that this value must be rounded to the 3rd decimal
place.
If you indicate rounding up, then the value reckoned would be 700.680.
If you indicate rounding off, then, applying normal rounding off rules, the value reckoned

Preferences Section
Restrict IDS for Unit Holder
Mandatory
Select ‘Yes’ in this field to indicate that specific income distribution setups for unit holders may
be overridden.
Reinvestment Allowed
Optional
Select ‘Yes’ in this field to indicate that reinvestment is allowed for the fund. If the rules are

default ‘Yes’ and locked for data entry.
Reinvestment Lag
Mandatory
Specify the reinvestment lag as the number of days to enable reinvestment on a different date
or the same day as the payment date. The default value is 0. If the value is considered as 0,
then the reinvestment is made on the same day as the payment date. For a value other than
0, the system calculates the reinvestment date from the payment date. For example: If the
number of days entered is 10 and the payment date is 30th June, then the reinvestment date
will be 10th July.
Allow EPU Components Setup?
Optional
Select ‘Yes’ in this field to indicate applicability of EPU, (Earnings Per Unit) and that the
earnings per unit must be defined in terms of components, or as a single value. By default,

3-19
Note
If the fund is a dividend equalization fund, i.e. if you have checked the ‘Dividend Equalization Applicable’ option in the General Operating Rules for the fund, you can maintain only
the following options here:
–
All Units as on allocation date
–
All units as on confirmed date
–
All units as on dealing date
If units for freeze holding is based on transaction/dealing date then all the transactions
backdated to the previous dividend cycle would be treated as old units (G1 units). If units for
freeze holding is based on allocation date then all the transactions backdated to the previous
dividend cycle would be treated as new units (G2 units).
Example:
Consider two dividend cycles - the first from January 01, 2010 to January 31, 2010 and the
second from February 01, 2010’ to ‘February 28, 2010. A subscription transaction (S1) is
captured on application date, February 15, 2010, with transaction date as January 15, 2010
and allocation date as February 16, 2010. For the second dividend, units allotted in this
transaction would be treated as G1 units (if the units for freeze holding is based on
transaction/dealing date) or G2 units (if the units for freeze holding is based on allocation
date).
First Dividend Declare Date
Date Format, Optional
Specify the first date for dividend declaration, for the fund. The system considers the first
dividend date in arriving at the date for dividend processing, as follows:
First dividend processing = First Dividend Declare Date – Dividend Declaration Frequency +
Dividend Payment Frequency.
The system also uses the first dividend declare date to arrive at the next dividend declare
date, applying the specified declaration frequency.
If you do not specify the first dividend declare date, the fiscal year specified for the fund is
used to determine the next dividend declare date.
Holiday Rule
Alphanumeric, Mandatory
Select the rule to be applied if the dividend processing date falls on a holiday. You can select
either the PRIOR rule (the previous working day is considered) or the AFTER rule (the next
working day is considered), for the dividend type.
The holiday rule you select here will be applicable to all dividend-processing dates that have
been arrived at using a frequency. They are not applicable to dates arrived at using lead times
or lag periods.
Pay Dividends During Redemption?

Optional
Select ‘Yes’ in this field to indicate the applicability of mock dividends for the fund. This
feature is only available if your installation has requested for it.
Payment Lag
1 Character Maximum, Numeric, Optional
Specify a lag period (in days) for the payment of dividend. The lag value is interpreted in
calendar days, and is used to arrive at the payment date for the dividend. The payment date
is arrived at as follows:
Dividend Payment Date = Dividend Declaration Date + Payment Lag
Compulsory Reinvestment for Retirement Account
Optional
You can use this field to indicate that dividend due from the fund on an IRA account must be
compulsorily reinvested. Check this box to indicate compulsory reinvestment.
Default EPU to Previous Declared EPU
Optional
Specify whether the previous day’s Earning Per Unit (EPU) needs to be defaulted during the
generation of a dividend record. You can select either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ from the drop-down list.
If you select the option ‘Yes’, the system will default the previous day’s EPU while generating
the dividend record at the Beginning of Day (BOD). This record will be an authorized record.
However, you will be able to modify it. If the previous day’s EPU is zero, the system will still
default the value and generate an authorized record. You can enter the EPU value for this
record.
This field is available only for Money Market funds. Also, if ‘Dividend Declaration Frequency’
and ‘Dividend Payment Frequency’ are the same, this field will be disabled.
Interest to be compounded for the payment period?
Optional
Indicate whether the dividend interest needs to be compounded for the entire payment period
or not. You can select either ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ from the drop-down list.
If you select ‘Yes’, the system will calculate the dividend on the amount instead of multiplying
the units by the EPU. The EPU value maintained as ‘As amount’ will be directly used in the
dividend calculations.
This field is available only for Money Market funds. Also, if ‘Dividend Declaration Frequency’
and ‘Dividend Payment Frequency’ are the same, this field will be disabled.
Example:
Assume that the EPU is 0.001267. This value will be directly used during dividend processing
to calculate the payment amount.

During payment processing at the end of the month (in case the payment frequency is
monthly), the EPU entered at the end of the month will be used for all calculations for the
payment period. In case the EPU entered at the end of the month is different, then the new
EPU will be used to calculate the dividend amount payable for all days in the payment period.
In case the payment date happens to be a holiday, defined in the system calendar, the system
will process the dividend on the day preceding the holiday (if the holiday rule is set to ‘prior’).
Reinvestment Base Price
Alphanumeric; Mandatory only if default distribution mode is ‘Reinvestment’.
Reinvestment transactions into the fund can be put through either at the NAV for the day or
the transaction base price. You can use this field to indicate the price that must be used.
Minimum Amount for Payment
Numeric, Optional
Indicate the threshold dividend amount in fund base currency. If Investor has chosen the cash
option for dividend payment and the dividend income in the current processing cycle is more
than threshold dividend amount, then dividend income can be paid out.
3-24
If Unit holder has chosen distribution mode as a combination of cash and reinvestment and
the cash portion of dividend amount net of tax is less than Minimum Amount for Payment then
system will generate a single reinvestment transaction for the total dividend income.
Action on Minimum Amount Validation
Optional
Select the options from list:

Reinvest - Reinvest the dividend if it falls below minimum amount for payment.

Hold - No additional processing is required and Dividend amount is neither be paid out
nor reinvested.
Override at Pay Time
Optional
Indicate whether Minimum Amount for Payment can be overridden during dividend payment
processing.
Auto Reinvestment for Unclaimed Dividend
Optional
If you select ‘Yes’, system will automatically reinvest when dividend is unclaimed, i.e.,
dividend check is not encashed within the expiry date.
Note
By default, this option will be ’No’.
Auto Reinvestment for Unclaimed Dividend When No Balance Left
Optional
If you select ‘Yes’, then system will automatically reinvest when dividend is unclaimed, i.e.,
dividend check is not encashed within the expiry date and when the unit holder does not have
sufficient balance in the underlying fund.
Note
By default, this option will be ’No’.
Track Dividend for Uncleared Transactions?
Optional
Indicate whether dividend payment/re-investment should be tracked for an individual uncleared transaction.
If you select ‘Yes’, dividend will be held back temporarily for subscription transactions whose
cheques are not cleared as on the Dividend Declaration Date. Dividend will be released when
the payment is cleared.
Note
By default, this option will be ’No’.
3-25
Track Dividend for Blocked Transactions?
Optional
Specify whether dividend payment should be tracked for a blocked transaction, where some
or all units are blocked at the time of dividend processing.
If you select ‘Yes’,, system will process the dividend as per the action selected in the Block
Transaction Screen.
Note
By default, this option will be ’No’.
Pay Ungenerated Reinvestments?
Optional
Select ‘Yes’, to indicate that in case the re investment results in zero units allotment, the
amount should be paid out to the investor.
If you select ‘Yes’, then system executes the following steps:

Converts the amount to be reinvested to the fund base currency

Divides the amount in fund base currency with the latest NAV for the fund. This will
result in the units expected to that could be allotted.

Applies the rounding rule to the number of units.
If the number of units in the result of step 3 is greater than zero, re-investment transaction will
be generated. If the result is zero then the amount should be paid out to the investor in the
unitholder preferred currency. In case any specific preference has been set at the unitholder
fund level then the respective currency will be used.
TDS Applicable for all UH
Conditional
You can enter a value in this field only if you have selected the ‘Dividend Equalization
Applicable’ option in the General Operating Rules for the fund. The default value is ‘No’; if you
select ‘Yes’, the system will distribute dividend after deducting the tax applicable for all unit
holders who are entitled to dividend. This is applicable even for the equalization amount.
FDAP Income
Optional
Check this box to indicate the dividends distributed in this fund are FDAP income.
Note
–
The preference that you have maintained ate the unit holder level (the ‘Tax
Deducted At Source’ field in the ‘Unit Holder Maintenance’ screen) will take
precedence over the value maintained here. For instance, if you have unchecked
the TDS option at the Unit holder level, then all inflows to the unit holder will be done
on a gross basis even if you have selected the ‘TDS Applicable for all UH’ field at
the fund level.
–
You are required to maintain a single WHT setup (with single slab) for the equalization fund. Tax on the gross dividend amount will be deducted based on this setup.

current dated.
3.6
General Operating Rules Maintenance
This fund rule facilitates the maintenance of guidelines that will govern the operation of the
fund with respect to the following parameters:

The pricing policy, i.e., whether the fund is to be a pre-priced or a post-priced fund. You
can also set up the price declare frequency and the next price declare date. If it is a
closed-ended fund, you can also set up the maturity date.

The automatic redemption details, if the fund is to have automatic redemption of units
for a unit holder based on the threshold balance.

The number of decimals for NAV declaration, as well as the lot for NAV.

The Ageing Policy of the fund

The applicability of charges such as Contingent Deferred Sales Charge (CDSC) for
redemption or switch transactions in the fund, as well as the processing order.

Specification of the NAV Lot

Dividend Equalization

Rules that govern check writing for the fund, such as:

3.6.1
–
The limits on the amount for a check.
–
The minimum period for which units must be held in the investor account for the
fund, before they are redeemed by a check.
–
Whether the unit holder can close the account through a redemption check
–
If the fund is a retirement fund, whether check facility can be made available for the
fund
–
Applicable penalties on check redemption due to contravening any of the limits for
check amount, minimum period, or insufficient account balance or stop payment
instructions on a check.
Whether the system should recompute the fund prices and adjust units as per forecast
rates, if the fund is a Guaranteed Fund.
Ageing Policy for Fund
A subscription transaction entered into by an investor into any fund can be tracked till the units
resulting from the transaction have been cleared in full from the unit holder account of the
investor. This is known as ageing.
3-35
Each fund may have a different approach to ageing a transaction. The approaches followed
in Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor Servicing are presented below:
FIFO (First In First Out)
In this approach, in a scrip-less fund, the unit balance resulting from the earliest transactions
of the unit holder in the fund would be considered for redemption.
Ageing based on Transaction Receipts
In this approach, in a scrip-less fund, the unit balance resulting from any earlier transaction
chosen by the unit holder, based on the receipt presented for the same, would be considered
for redemption.
Hierarchy
If the AMC services distributors according to a service level agreement, and the distributor
books are maintained at the AMC, the option of ageing transactions received from the
distributors according to the hierarchy agreed to, is available. The allocation process updates
the balances at a unit holder and fund level. The distributor books are a reflection of the
underlying hierarchy holdings based on the AMC-Distributor agreement.
IOF/IRRF Optimization
If a fund has IRRF/IOF taxes applicable, provided the fund holding is redeemed within a
stipulated time then the IRRF/IOF based funds and the subscription transactions to be
redeemed are selected in the following order of priority.

Not in the Lock in period for gains

Lower IOF percentage

Lower IRRF percentage

Greater number of days to change the IRRF slab.
Funds following the IRRF/IOF taxation method need to be classified as “Pension Funds” and
“Non Pension Funds”.
FIFO across products
In money market funds in which there is a daily declaration of dividend, the ordering of
transactions for ageing, in the event of redemption, is based on the FIFO principle. In
addition, the dividend due to the unit holder as a result of the transactions that has been
distributed in the present payment cycle is also considered.
After the dividend computation is made and the appropriate tax deducted, the transactions are
ordered for ageing based on non-taxable and taxable holdings of the unit holder across
products, in the following sequence:
1. Units for which the retention period has expired and which have already gone through a
minimum of one dividend cycle and are taxable
2. Units for which the retention period has expired and which have not gone through a single
dividend cycle and are taxable
3. Units for which the retention period has expired and which have already gone through a
minimum of one dividend cycle and are not taxable
4. Units for which the retention period has expired and which have not gone through a single
dividend cycle and are taxable
5. Units for which the retention period has not expired and which have not gone through a
single dividend cycle and are taxable
6. Units for which the retention period has not expired and which have not gone through a
single dividend cycle and are not taxable
3-36
Note
This feature (FIFO across products) is available only if your installation has specifically requested for it.
3.6.2
Specifying Limit Order Options for Funds
For a fund, you can specify the following options for processing limit orders, in the General
Operating Rules screen:

Whether limit orders may be processed for the fund

Whether future dated transactions are allowed for the fund

Whether automatic processing in respect of limit orders is allowed for the fund

The pricing rule to be applicable, if the specified date falls on a holiday
Automatic processing for limit orders involves the automatic generation of buy or sell
transactions. If your AMC processes limit orders for third party funds, and must wait for
confirmation before processing the orders on the specified dates, you might need to disable
automatic processing.
You specify the limit order options in the Limit Order Processing Options section of the
General Operating Rules screen.
3.6.3
Indicating Re-computation of Fund Prices and Adjustment of Units
The fund prices of funds like Employee Benefit Growth Fund are derived based on the
forecasted rate of growth. The rates will be re-forecasted in the interim several times and the
actual rate of growth is published at the end of the year.
If you choose the option ‘Yes’ for Guaranteed Funds, the system will:

Re-compute the fund prices and adjust the units to the investors based on the reforecasted rates during interim periods and actual rate growth during annual rate
declaration time

Share the residual units of investors who have left before interim/annual rate declaration
time among the existing investors.
Example
Let us assume that a Fund (F100) is launched with the price of 10 ZAR with the forecasted
rate of 10% per annum. Consequently, 10 * 10/ (100 * 365) = 0.0027 will be the increase in
price till a new rate is declared. Please note that the price used here is an example and not
the exact formulae as such.
Day 0 10 ZAR
Day 1 10.0027 ZAR
Day 2 10.0054 ZAR
Day 3 10.0081 ZAR
Day 4 10.0108 ZAR
Day 5 10.0135 ZAR

The system will generate a redemption transaction for the above adjustment units excluding
the Investor UH5 and will be available for reporting only in case of interim run. If it is on actual
rate at the end of the year, the same will be shared with other investors proportionately.
When the next interim or actual run is executed the system will ignore these adjustment
redemptions and while adjusting units these adjusted units will taken into account.

holder, in the fund, are to be cancelled. If you select this option, the standing instructions for
the transaction are cancelled, including those that are to be generated after an automatic
3-43
redemption occurs. Select the ‘Standing Instruction’ option in this field to indicate cancellation
of standing instructions.
If this option has been chosen in the General Operating Rules, the automatic redemption
process generates redemption transactions for unit holders in the fund, with the ‘Cancel
Instruction’ option automatically set.
If this option is set for an outflow transaction such as redemption, switch or transfer, the End
of Day process cancels all standing instructions (irrespective of the transaction type) for the
unit holder in the fund after the outflow transactions involving the unit holder have been
allocated for the day.

time among the existing investors.
Dividend Equalization Applicable
Optional
Funds typically consist of units which have received some benefit in the form of income or
dividend distribution and units which have not received any such inflows. The former are G1
units and the latter G2 units.
Since the income and dividend distribution rates are different for units belonging to the G1 and
G2 groups, you can apply an equalization rate to equalize the benefit for the G2 units during
dividend distribution. This rate will be considered only for the G2 units. To enable application
of this rate, select ‘Yes’. Else you can retain the default value ‘No’ to carry out normal dividend
distribution.
Note
You cannot maintain stock dividend if you select this option.

Click on ‘Minimum/Maximum Holdings Check’ tab to maintain these details:
As part of the minimum holdings options, you can also indicate whether the holdings
considered for validation are those of all unit holders under a CIF, or for an individual unit
holder.
Note
The above check is not validated online during transaction capture or authorization. When
there are transactions into a fund violating the minimum holdings validation, the system
logs an exception in the Pre-End of Day Check screen. During the End of Day processes,
the system allocates the transactions, logging the exceptions in respect of them.
Minimum Holdings Indicator
Alphanumeric; Optional
In this field, you can indicate the basis upon which the minimum holdings check is performed.
The following options are available:

Amount: The value of holdings (at redemption price). If you choose this option you
must specify the minimum amount in the Minimum Holdings Amount field. If the check
is to apply at CIF level, the redeemable value of units held by all unit holders under the
CIF in the fund is checked against the Minimum Holdings Amount.

Units: The number of units held. If you choose this option you must specify the
minimum number of units in the Minimum Holdings Units field. If the check is to apply
at CIF level, the total number of units held by all unit holders under the CIF in the fund
is checked against the Minimum Holdings Units.

Lower of Amount/Units: The minimum amount specified or the redeemable value of
minimum units specified, whichever is lower.

Higher of Amount/ Units: The minimum amount specified or the redeemable value of
minimum units specified whichever is higher.

Not Applicable: The minimum holdings validation is not performed if you choose this
option.
If you choose either of the last two options (Lower of Amount/Units or Higher of Amount/
Units), you must specify the applicable minimum amount in the Minimum Holdings Amount
field as well as the applicable minimum number of units in the Minimum Holdings Units field.
Also, in either case, the redeemable value of the total number of units held by all investors
under the CIF is considered for validation, if the check is to apply at CIF level.
3-47
Minimum Holdings Apply For
Alphanumeric; Mandatory if Minimum Holdings Indicator is specified
In this field, indicate whether the minimum holdings check is applicable for CIFs, or for
individual unit holders.
If the check is to apply at CIF level, the redeemable value of the total number of units held by
all unit holders under the CIF in the fund is considered for validation.
Minimum Holdings Amount
Numeric; Mandatory if Minimum Holdings Indicator is specified
Specify the minimum redeemable value of holdings in the fund, for a redemption, switch or
transfer transaction involving a CIF or individual unit holder.
Example
For the Royal Trust Growth Fund, you have selected the ‘Amount’ option as the Minimum
Holdings Indicator for redemption, switch and transfer transactions. You have also specified
the Minimum Holdings Amount value as 1200 USD (the fund base currency is USD).
The minimum holdings validation is required to be enforced for individual unit holders and not
for CIFs.
Therefore, the redeemable value of total number of units held by an individual unit holder, in
the Royal Trust Growth Fund must exceed or equal 1200 USD, for a redemption, switch or
transfer transaction involving the unit holder.
Minimum Holdings Units
Numeric; Mandatory if Minimum Holdings Indicator is specified
Specify the minimum number of units required to be held by an individual unit holder, or a CIF,
in the fund, for a redemption, switch or transfer transaction.
Example
For the Carey Bugle Growth Fund, you have selected the ‘Units’ option as the Minimum
Holdings Indicator for redemption, switch and transfer transactions. You have also specified
the Minimum Holdings Units value as 1000.
The minimum holdings validation is required to be enforced for individual unit holders and not
for CIFs.
Therefore, the total number of units held by an individual unit holder, in the Carey Bugle
Growth Fund must equal or exceed 1000 units, for a redemption, switch or transfer
transaction involving the unit holder.
A note on the minimum holdings validation
If the Minimum Holdings Indicator selected is ‘Lower of Amount/Units’, the redeemable value
of the specified Minimum Holdings Units is arrived at, and compared with the Minimum
Holdings Amount specified. The lower of the two values is considered as the minimum
holdings value against which the minimum holdings validation would be made. Similarly, if the
Minimum Holdings Indicator selected is ‘Higher of Amount/Units’, the redeemable value of the
specified Minimum Holdings Units is arrived at, and compared with the Minimum Holdings
Amount specified, and the higher of the two values is considered as the minimum holdings
value against which the minimum holdings validation would be made.
3-48
Example
For the Burton Carey Growth Fund, you have selected the ‘Lower of Amount/Units’ option as
the Minimum Holdings Indicator for redemption, switch and transfer transactions. You have
also specified the Minimum Holdings Amount value as 1200 USD, and the Minimum Holdings
Units value as 1000 units.
The minimum holdings validation is required to be enforced for CIFs, and not for individual
unit holders.
To arrive at the minimum holdings value against which the validation would be made, the
redeemable value of 1000 units is computed, at the redemption price. If the redemption price
is 0.8, the redeemable value = 1000 * 0.8 = 800 USD.
The redeemable value obtained (800 USD) is compared with the Minimum Holdings Amount
specified (1200 USD). Since the Minimum Holdings Indicator chosen is ‘Lower of Amount/
Units’, the minimum holdings value to be validated against, is 800 USD. Therefore, the
redeemable value of total number of units held by all unit holders under a CIF, in the Burton
Carey Fund must equal or exceed 800 USD, for redemption, switch or transfer transaction
involving a CIF.
If the Minimum Holdings Indicator were selected as ‘Higher of Amount/Units’, the higher value
(1200 USD) would be considered as the minimum holdings value against which the validation
would be made. Therefore, the redeemable value of total number of units held by all unit
holders under a CIF, in the Burton Carey Fund would have to equal or exceed 1200 USD, for
a redemption, switch or transfer transaction involving a CIF.
Min Holdings Threshold limit
Numeric

be passed over to the Unitholder and so IOF and IRRF taxes will be applicable. This should
be greater than or equal to the Min Lock-in Period.
Note
When a transaction is redeemed within the Lock-In period, redemption happens at the lowest applicable NAV as on date of Subscription or on the date of Redemption.
Default Lock-in Period for Gain (Days)
Numeric, Optional
Specify the default lock-in period within which if the subscription is redeemed no gains would
be passed over to the Unitholder and so IOF and IRRF taxes will not be applicable.
3-49
Note
The default lock-in period should be within the minimum and maximum lock in period.

3.6.6.6
Processing of Swinging Price
For a swinging price fund, the system computes the net transaction of sales value (Inflow Outflow) on the application date (current date) at fund family level for the given fund and
arrives at the fund price

Net of Sales Value is Positive: The system applies the offer price to all transactions as
per the maintenance at fund family level.

Net of Sales Value is Negative: The system applies the bid price to all transactions as
per maintenance at fund family level.

Net of sales value is Zero: The system applies the mid price that is, (bid price+ offer
price)/2
The gross amount in the fund family base currency is used for the net of sales value
computation. For unit based transactions, the net sales is computed as follows: units applied
* latest available NAV.
For Semi Swinging Funds, the system computes the net of sales value (Inflow – Outflow) for
transaction date at fund family level for the given fund and arrives at the fund price based on
threshold basis at fund level as follows:
If Threshold Basis is Amount then:

System applies Offer price, if net of sales value is greater than threshold value.

System applies Bid price, if net of sales value is less than (-1) * Threshold value.

System applies Mid price ((Offer Price + Bid Price)/ 2), if Net of sales value is between
(-1) * threshold value and threshold value.
If Threshold Basis is Percentage then:

System applies offer price, if net of sales value is greater than threshold value
percentage of Net Asset Value (NAV) of the fund.

System applies bid price, if net of sales value is less than (-1) * threshold value
percentage of net asset value of the fund.

System applies mid price ((Offer Price + Bid Price)/ 2), if net of sales value is between
(-1) * threshold value and threshold value percentage of net asset value of the fund.
Net asset value of the fund is computed as the BOD outstanding units * latest available NAV.
The reference types mapped at fund family level is used to compute the net of sales value.
The swinging price computed is used for unitizing all transaction types mapped at fund family
level.
For transaction types not mapped at fund family level, the system does not use swinging
price. The system uses the gross amount in fund base currency for net of sales value
3-52
computation. For unit based transactions, the net of sales is computed by using units applied
* latest available NAV.
A mini EOD computes and populates the swinging price and swinging price basis for Swinging
Price and Semi Swinging Price Fund. This mini EOD is run during the day to arrive at the Total
Inflow, Total Outflow, and Net Sales value.

If a GO has been generated prior to amendment the new cut-off lag will be affected for the
next GO generation onwards only. Already generated GO for the day will not be affected.
However, if the GO is generated after the amendment, the system will consider the same with
latest value.
The automated generation of GO will be achieved by using a time based scheduler. A
procedure will be enabled to run the time-based scheduler after a predefined time interval say
after every 5 minutes or 10 minutes. The time based scheduler will trigger automated Global
Order generation process by adding the Cutoff time to the Fund Cut-Off Time. Once GO for
a fund is generated the scheduler will mark the Global Order as generated.

4.1.3.5
Transaction Limits Section
The volume limits on transactions in the transaction type are captured here.
The limits that may be specified here depend upon the Application Mode specified for this
transaction type. If the Mode specified is Amount, then the Amount limits in this section are
4-8
mandatory. If the Mode is Units, the Units limits are mandatory. If the Mode is ‘Both’, then
both limits are mandatory.
Minimum Amount
Display Only
The minimum transaction amount allowed for this transaction type in this fund is displayed
here
Minimum Unit
Display Only
The minimum number of units that may be applied for in this transaction type in this fund is
displayed here.
Maximum Amount
Numeric, Mandatory if Application Mode is Amount or Both
Enter a value to specify the Maximum Transaction Amount that a unit holder can invest or
redeem. This is the maximum amount that can be accepted for the fund for this given
transaction type.
Step Amount
Numeric, Mandatory if Application Mode is Amount or Both
Enter a value to specify the steps of amount in which a unit holder can invest or redeem.
4-9
Step Units
Numeric, Mandatory if Application Mode is Units or Both
Enter a value to specify the steps of units in which a unit holder can invest or redeem. This
will operate above the Minimum Transaction Units.
Maximum Units
Numeric, Mandatory if Application Mode is Units or Both
Enter a value to specify the Maximum Transaction Units that a unit holder can invest or
redeem.
This operates in lines similar to that of the Transaction Amount.
The maximum volume (in terms of units) of a single transaction that is entered should never
exceed or be equal to the figure of one billion.
For example, if a user wishes to enter a transaction of 1.5 billion units, he will have to consider
entering two transactions, with neither exceeding a maximum limit of 999999999.999999
units.
Minimum Initial Transaction Amount
Numeric, Optional
Specify the minimum amount permitted for an initial transaction, for an investor in this fund.
Maximum Initial Transaction Units
Numeric, Optional

Minimum Holdings Check Options
You can indicate the minimum holdings balance for an IPO or subscription transaction in
respect of a standing instruction, for a CIF or an individual unit holder, in the fund. The
minimum holdings value can be specified either as an amount, number of units, or
redeemable value of units.
As part of the minimum holdings options, you can also indicate whether the holdings
considered for validation are those of all unit holders under a CIF, or for an individual unit
holder.
Note
The above check is not validated online during transaction capture or authorization. When
there are transactions into a fund violating the minimum holdings validation, the system
logs an exception in the Pre-End of Day Check screen. During the End of Day processes,
the system allocates the transactions, logging the exceptions in respect of them.
SI Minimum Holdings Indicator
Alphanumeric; Optional
In this field, you can indicate the basis upon which the minimum holdings check is performed.
The following options are available:

Amount: The value of holdings (at redemption price). If you choose this option you
must specify the minimum amount in the Minimum Holdings Amount field. If the check
is to apply at CIF level, the redeemable value of units held by all investors under the CIF
in the fund is checked against the Minimum Holdings Amount.

Units: The number of units held. If you choose this option you must specify the
minimum number of units in the Minimum Holdings Units field. If the check is to apply
at CIF level, the total number of units held by all investors under the CIF in the fund is
checked against the Minimum Holdings Units.

Lower of Amount/Units: The minimum amount specified or the redeemable value of
minimum units specified, whichever is lower.

Higher of Amount/ Units: The minimum amount specified or the redeemable value of
minimum units specified, whichever is higher.

Not Applicable: The minimum holdings validation is not performed if this option is
chosen. For standing instructions involving transactions in the fund, the holdings
validation cannot be set.
If you choose either of the last two options (Lower of Amount/Units or Higher of Amount/
Units), you must specify the applicable minimum amount in the Minimum Holdings Amount
field as well as the applicable minimum number of units in the Minimum Holdings Units field.
Also, in either case, the redeemable value of the total number of units held by all investors
under the CIF is considered for validation, if the check is to apply at CIF level.
SI Minimum Holdings Apply For
Alphanumeric; Mandatory if Minimum Holdings Indicator is specified
In this field, indicate whether the minimum holdings check is applicable for CIFs, or for
individual unit holders.
If the check is to apply at CIF level, the redeemable value of the total number of units held by
all investors under the CIF in the fund is considered for validation.
4-11
SI Minimum Holdings Amount
Numeric; Mandatory if Minimum Holdings Indicator is specified
Specify the minimum redeemable value of holdings in the fund, for an IPO or subscription
transaction in respect of a standing instruction involving a CIF or individual unit holder.
Example
For the Royal Trust Growth Fund, you have selected the ‘Amount’ option as the Minimum
Holdings Indicator for IPO or subscription transactions that would be generated in respect of
standing instructions. You have also specified the Minimum Holdings Amount value as 1200
USD (the base currency of the fund is USD).
The minimum holdings validation is required to be enforced for individual unit holders and not
for CIFs.
Therefore, the redeemable value of total number of units held by an individual unit holder, in
the Burton Carey Fund must exceed or equal 1200 USD for an IPO or subscription transaction
in respect of a standing instruction involving the unit holder.
SI Minimum Holdings Units
Numeric; Mandatory if Minimum Holdings Indicator is specified
Specify the minimum number of units required to be held by an individual unit holder, or a CIF,
in the fund, for an IPO or subscription transaction in respect of a standing instruction.
Example
For the Carey Bugle Growth Fund, you have selected the ‘Units’ option as the Minimum
Holdings Indicator for IPO or subscription transactions that would be generated in respect of
standing instructions. You have also specified the Minimum Holdings Units value as 1000.
The minimum holdings validation is required to be enforced for individual unit holders and not
for CIFs.
Therefore, the total number of units held by an individual unit holder, in the Carey Bugle
Growth Fund must equal or exceed 1000 USD, for an IPO or subscription transaction in
respect of a standing instruction involving the unit holder.
A note on the minimum holdings validation
If the Minimum Holdings Indicator selected is ‘Lower of Amount/Units’, the redeemable value
of the specified Minimum Holdings Units is arrived at, and compared with the Minimum
Holdings Amount specified. The lower of the two values is considered as the minimum
holdings value against which the minimum holdings validation would be made. Similarly, if the
Minimum Holdings Indicator selected is ‘Higher of Amount/Units’, the redeemable value of the
specified Minimum Holdings Units is arrived at, and compared with the Minimum Holdings
Amount specified, and the higher of the two values is considered as the minimum holdings
value against which the minimum holdings validation would be made.
Example
For the Burton Carey Growth Fund, you have selected the ‘Lower of Amount/Units’ option as
the Minimum Holdings Indicator to be validated for successful generation of an IPO or
subscription transaction in respect of a standing instruction. You have also specified the
Minimum Holdings Amount value as 1200 USD, and the Minimum Holdings Units value as
1000.
4-12
The minimum holdings validation is required to be enforced for CIFs, and not for individual
unit holders.
To arrive at the minimum holdings value against which the validation would be made, the
redeemable value of 1000 units is computed, at the redemption price. If the redemption price
is 0.8, the redeemable value = 1000 * 0.8 = 800 USD.
The redeemable value obtained (800 USD) is compared with the Minimum Holdings Amount
specified (1200 USD). Since the Minimum Holdings Indicator chosen is ‘Lower of Amount/
Units’, the minimum holdings value to be validated against, is 800 USD. Therefore, the
redeemable value of total number of units held by all unit holders under a CIF, in the Burton
Carey Fund must equal or exceed 800 USD, for an IPO or subscription transaction in respect
of a standing instruction involving a CIF.
If the Minimum Holdings Indicator were selected as ‘Higher of Amount/Units’, the higher value
(1200 USD) would be considered as the minimum holdings value against which the validation
would be made. Therefore, the redeemable value of total number of units held by all unit
holders under a CIF, in the Burton Carey Fund would have to equal or exceed 1200 USD, for
an IPO or subscription transaction in respect of a standing instruction involving a CIF.
4.1.3.6
Amount/Units Limit for Investor Category
The volume ranges of a transaction, for each transaction type, can be limited for each investor

activity provided there is no judicial block (partial or full) on the subscription.
Notice Period
Notice period is the number of days which an investor has to inform the Transfer Agent in
advance before certain number of days, in case of transaction (Subscription / Redemption /
Switch / Transfer/ IPO transaction) in a fund.
A notice period is set at each transaction type level for a fund. The system tracks the
transaction breaches if any from the notice period. The person who authorizes the transaction
is made aware of the notice period breach.
The following details are captured in the Fund rules - transaction processing rules screen to
capture Notice period and the Notice period date basis:

(Actual Calendar or System Calendar) for Subscription

Redemption

Switch

Transfer transaction

IPO transaction
The system raises a warning message for breach in notice period if the transaction date
added to the notice period is greater than the dealing date during transaction capture. You
can view the overridden warning messages at the time of transaction authorization.
The system internally tracks a transaction level indicator to indicate the breach in notice
period. The criteria based flat percentage or amount based load can be setup for transactions
which breached the notice period based on this indicator.
Note
There is no change in deriving dealing date logic. The system will not re-validate the transaction for any changes in the holiday calendar post transaction save.
Transaction Threshold Amount
Specify a threshold amount for redemption type transaction. On saving a redemption
transaction, the system will display a warning message if the transaction amount (in fund base
currency) is greater than the maintained threshold amount.
4-23
In case of unit based transaction, units applied and latest available NAV will be used to derive
the basis value for comparison. The system will use the par value if latest NAV is not available.
Similarly, for multi-currency transaction, to derive the basis value for comparison, the
transaction base currency is converted to fund base currency based on the transaction
exchange rate. If transaction’s exchange rate is not available, then the system will use the
latest available exchange rate (as per project allocation logic). The system will not validate the
transaction value with maintained threshold amount if the exchange rate is not available.

Fund Load Setup
This fund rule enables you to designate different fees or incentives that are levied during the
processing of transactions, as applicable for transactions in specific funds. A simple mapping
can be done where the appropriate fees or incentives, called loads in the system, may be
tagged as applicable to the appropriate transaction types for the appropriate funds.
You can also designate the loads as applicable to certain reference types of transactions,
such as standing instructions, policy transactions and so on.
The load details maintained will be attached to the funds using this maintenance screen. Only
authorized loads can be attached to a fund, whose fund rules are not authorized.
To map loads to a fund, use the Fund Load Setup screen. You can invoke this screen by
clicking the ‘Fund Load’ tab from the Fund Demographics screen.

Broker

Distributor

Fund

Registrar

Trustee

Unit Holder
To Entity Type
Mandatory
Specify the entity that will be recipients of the load. Select the Entity Type from the list given
in the drop down menu. The options in the list are similar to those in the From Entity Type field
list.
4-29
Transaction Type
Alphanumeric, Mandatory
Specify the transaction type for which the loads are being defined. The adjoining option list
displays all valid transaction type codes along with their description. You can choose the
appropriate one.
Processing Frequency
Alphanumeric, Mandatory
Specify the frequency at which this load is to be applied. Select one from the list box.
Loads can be applied at any of three possible frequencies:

Allocation: This will mean that you will be charging the investor a fee or giving an
incentive at the time of allocation of units. Allocation time loads cannot be designated
for any transaction types other than IPO, subscription, redemption, and switch.

Transaction: The charge (fee) or incentive will be applied at the time the transaction
request is accepted from the investor.

Post Allocation: This frequency is applicable typically to the Capital Gains Tax, which
may be applied after allocation, on the gross amount. If indexation is applicable to
capital gains tax computation based on this load, then you must select this frequency.
Note
Capital Gains Tax may also be designated as an allocation time load.
GL Account Code
Alphanumeric, Optional
Specify the code that will be used to map this load to its corresponding charge code in the
external system.
When transaction information is exported to an external system, if separate books of accounts
are to be posted for different loads, this code will be used to identify this load information in
the export data.
Debit or Credit
Optional
Indicate whether the applied load would result in a debit or credit for the fund. This data is
captured for information purposes only and has no processing implications in the system
database.
Contra Account Code
Alphanumeric, Optional
Specify the code that will be used to identify the second leg of accounting entries for any
transaction, in the event of exporting of transaction information to an external system.
Round Off / Down / Up
Mandatory
Indicate the rounding options for the load amount for the selected transaction type, for the
fund.

Choose ‘Round Up’ to indicate rounding the value at the precision decimal place to the
next higher numeral.

Choose ‘Round Off’ to indicate normal rounding at the precision decimal.
4-30

Choose ‘Round Down’ to indicate truncation of the value at the precision decimal place.
Example
Let us suppose that the load amount computed for a subscription transaction is 10.561234,
and that this value must be rounded to the 3rd decimal place.
If you indicate rounding up, then the value reckoned would be 10.562.
If you indicate rounding off, then, applying normal rounding off rules, the value reckoned
would be 10.561.
If you indicate rounding down or truncation, then the value would be truncated as it is, in the
3rd decimal place, and it would be reckoned as 10.561.
Priority Number
5 Character Maximum, Alphanumeric, Mandatory
Enter a value to specify the priority number in case of optional loads.
For a mandatory load, the priority number is set to 0 and for an optional load the priority
number should be unique, i.e., for a given fund, no more than one load can have the same
priority number.
Based on Income?
Optional
If the load is a Capital Gains Tax, and it is to be applied based on the gross amount after
allocation, choose the Capital Gains – Gross option in this field, for such a load.
If indexation is being applied for capital gains tax computation, choose the Capital Gains –
Indexation option in this field. The capital gains load is then applied using appropriate
indexation, according to the option chosen by the investor.
If Contingent Deferred Sales Charge (CDSC) is applicable for transactions in this fund,
choose the option CDSC option in this field to identify the CDSC load. This option will be
available only when Fund chosen is CDSC applicable Fund.
If the ageing policy for the fund has been specified as ‘IOF/IRRF’ optimization in the General
Operating Rules screen, then the following additional options are available:

IOF

Default IRRF

Optional IRRF
If Dilution Levy is selected, then the system applies the load only if the sum of transactions for
the combination of unit holder, fund, and transaction type exceeds the breach factor (inflow/
outflow) for the corpus, even though all other criteria are satisfied. An EOD batch computes
the aggregated net transaction amount at unit holder, fund, and transaction type level for
dilution levy enabled fund. If dilution levy limit of a fund is breached, then the system applies
the dilution levy load is applied for specific or all transactions for that unit holder, fund and
transaction type combination based on the parameter set.
A system parameter DILUTIONLEVY governs whether Dilution Levy needs to be applied for
specific or all Unit Holder (for Unit Holder, Fund, Transaction Type combination) transactions.
The parameter value S indicates that Dilution Levy is applicable for specific transactions only
whereas parameter value A indicates that Dilution Levy is applicable for all transactions for
Unit Holder, Fund, and Transaction Type combination.
4-31
The above options are provided under the criterion that the transaction type is redemption and
price to load is set to ‘No’. These options are applicable only for normal and systematic
withdrawal ref types.
Note
–
Optional IRRF can be maintained only for pension funds.
–
IOF load is applicable up to one year for pension funds and up to 30 days for non
pension funds.
Differential Fee?
Optional
Select ‘Yes’ in this field to indicate that the differential fee in the case of switch transactions
for any fund is to be applicable.
Slab Basis
Display only
System displays the basis on which the slabs will be reckoned for an amount-based load that
you are designating as applicable for the fund. The slabs must be reckoned on a gross
amount, net amount or on weighted average cost
Price Add In
Optional
Select this option to indicate that the add-in factor is to be applicable for computing the return
value for the load, for the selected transaction type. The add-in factor is used to arrive at the
return value for a load, at the time of allocation.
Level ID
Optional
Indicate the order in which the load is to be applied. Load is computed based on the fund
transaction amount and applied in the order of level id specified.
Note
Level Id is not applicable for LTP loads.
No. of Decimals
1 Character Maximum, Numeric, Mandatory
Indicate the maximum number of decimals that would be reckoned for rounding precision, for
the load amount.
Mandatory

FDAP Income
Optional
Check this box to indicate the load maintenance is a FDAP income.
This field is applicable only when ‘To Entity’ is Broker/Agent/Agency Branch/AO/IFA and
‘From Entity’ is fund/AMC/Unit holder. For other cases, if you check this field, then the system
will display the warning message. However, if you wish to continue, then the system will do
the WHT deductions and processes.
Send for GL Interface
Optional
Select ‘Yes’ in this field to indicate that accounting entries due only to the selected load must
be posted to the external asset management system, for the fund.
Apply Indexation on CGT?
Optional
If the load is a capital gains tax load, you can use this field to indicate whether indexation is
to be applied on capital gains tax computation, for transactions in this fund. Select this option
to indicate application of indexation. Leave it unchecked to indicate that indexation is not
applicable.
Dependent Level
Optional
Indicate the dependent level for the selected load, if any.
In case the load has a dependent level, then load will be applied on the difference between
the transaction amount and the sum of all dependent level load amounts, without considering
all recursive levels.
Note
The dependent level Id must be less than the Level Id. The dependent level Id is not applicable for LTP loads.
Details Section
Ref Type
Optional
To designate a load as being applicable for a reference transaction type for the selected fund,
select the reference type from the Available Reference Types box and move it to the Mapped
Reference Types box, using the arrows.
If loads are to be designated applicable to reference types for a fund, you must set up an
individual fund-load mapping record in this screen for each reference type for the fund, just as
you do for each transaction type.
Example
If the AMC wants a fee to be charged on subscription transaction but not on reinvestment
transaction, it can map only subscription transaction in the Ref Type field and not the
reinvestment.
4-33
Note
It must be remembered that, while mapping a load to a reference transaction type, the system does not support the mapping of the Ref Type 68 (Funding Repayment) to any load.
For more information, refer the chapter ‘The Allocation Process’ in the ‘Fund Manager User
Manual’.

Fund Formula Maintenance
This fund rule is an optional one that facilitates the definition of mathematical expressions and
factors that will be used in computation of any of the components in the NAV, Transaction
Base Prices, etc.
To set up a formula for a fund, use the Fund Formula screen. You can invoke this screen by
clicking the ‘Fund Formula Setup’ link from the Fund Demographics screen.
4-34
4.4.1
Checks
Before you set up a Fund Formula record for a fund, it is desirable to ensure that the following
information is already setup in the system:
4.4.2

The fund already has an existing, unauthorized Fund Demographics profile record.

The fund already has an existing, unauthorized Shares Characteristics profile record.

The fund already has an existing, unauthorized Transaction Processing Rules profile
record.
Entering Fund Formulae
The following considerations must be kept in mind while entering Fund Formulae:
4.4.2.1

If a formula is entered for a particular component, the formula cannot contain the
component itself as an operand. For example, if NAV is one of the components, and a
formula is being specified for NAV, it cannot contain NAV as one of the factors.

A component cannot be part of the factor (operand) and result for any other component.
For example, if the formula for the component NAV contains the component TxnBP01
as an operand, then the formula for the component TxnBP01 cannot contain NAV as an
operand.

Once you enter a formula, it must be tested successfully for it to be saved and applied.
To test a formula, click the Test button. The Fund Price Component screen is opened
and you must specify a component value that will be used in computing the results of
the formula.
Definition of Additional Components with Fund Prices
You can record additional components to be used for reporting along with the fund price, such
as tax information, interim profit, stock profit (capital gains), accumulated gains, and so on.
For instance, you may wish to include tax information as part of the Fund Price information,
but you may wish to indicate that the tax information you provide must not be used for actual
price computation.
Note
This feature is only available if your installation has specifically requested for it. An exhaustive note on this feature is found in the Annexure. The discussion in this chapter pertains only to definition of fund formula using components used in fund price computation.

Fund Formula Section
Component ID
10 Character Maximum, Alphanumeric, Mandatory
Specify the component of the fund price, for which an expression is being defined for
computation, by selecting any one of the Component ID’s, from the list given. This is an
Alphanumeric ID that is used to build the fund formula.
The component could be one of the standard price bases such as the Net Asset Value or
Transaction Base Prices; or an additional price basis such as Offer Price, Bid Price, Price
Before Performance, Price After Performance and so on. These additional price bases are
built on the appropriate parent standard price bases.
For instance, the additional price basis ‘Offer Price’ could have the standard price basis
TBP02 as its parent.
Additional price bases can be defined only if multiple price bases are allowed as indicated in
the General Operating Rules for the fund.
If multiple price bases are defined, you must also indicate the applicable inherent fees or
incentives.
Component Type
Alphanumeric, Mandatory
Select any one of the 4 Component Types given in the option. They can be:

User Entered: indicates that the user enters the value.

Default: indicates that there is a specified default value, which can be edited.

Formula : indicates the component value is computed as per this formula, based on
other Component ID’s

Constant: indicates a fixed value that cannot be changed.
Component Description
50 Character Maximum, Alphanumeric, Mandatory
Enter any text message or remark regarding the formula. This is a free format text.
Formula
Alphanumeric, Optional
When Formula is selected as the Component Type, then this field becomes mandatory. Any
text or value entered here should be equal to the result of the formula. When Formula is not
selected as the Component Type, then this field becomes unavailable for data entry.
Fluctuation(%)
Numeric; Optional
You can specify the fluctuation allowable in the additional components (typically tax
components) for the transaction type, for the fund. When prices are entered for the
transaction type for the fund, for the day, the system validates whether the fluctuation is within
the allowable limit specified in this field.
Default Value
Numeric, Optional
This field is available for data entry only if the Component Type selected is either Default or
Constant.
4-36
Price Basis
Alphanumeric; Mandatory
If multiple price bases are allowed as indicated in the General Operating Rules for the fund,
you can use this field to indicate whether price bases other than the NAV and Transaction
Base Prices are being specified for computation of the fund price component, using the
formula specified.
For the NAV and Transaction Base Price components, the ‘Yes’ option is defaulted in this field
and cannot be changed. For additional components, you can select ‘Yes’ to indicate
additional bases, or ‘No’ if no additional bases are being used in the formula.
Parent Basis
Alphanumeric; Mandatory
For components used for additional price bases, specify the standard price basis from which
the additional price basis derives, in this field. You can select either the NAV or the
Transaction Base Price as the parent price basis. NAV can be chosen as the parent price
basis only for NAV components.
Additional price bases can only be defined if allowed for the fund in the General Operating
Rules.
For components used for standard price bases such as NAV and Transaction Base Price, the
parent price basis is defaulted to the component itself.
Inherent Fee
Alphanumeric; Mandatory
If multiple price bases are defined, you must also indicate the applicable inherent fee in this
field. You can use the ‘Find’ link to select the applicable loads. The selection list displays
loads tagged as Price Basis Loads in the Load Definition.
For Transaction Base Prices, the inherent fee / incentive cannot be parameterized.
Note
Any loads that have been defined as price basis loads are only used as the indicator for
computing load values, and are not picked up during evaluation of criteria. That is, the other load details specified for such loads, such as the return value, slabs and so on, are not
taken into consideration. The difference between the Transaction Base Price and the
Price Basis defined for the transaction is considered as an inherent fee or incentive, during
allocation.
For instance, if the Price Basis for a transaction is ‘Offer Price’, and Transaction Base Price
is 1.009 and the Offer Price is 1.060, the difference (1.06-1.009 = 0.051, without currency
rounding) is considered as the inherent fee (since the TBP is less than the offer price). If the
offer price were less than the TBP, the difference between the two is considered an inherent
incentive.
Inherent Incentive
If multiple price bases are defined, you must also indicate the applicable inherent incentive
loads in this field.
4-37
Exclude
Optional
Select this option to indicate that the selected price component must be excluded from capital
gains computation. This specification can only be made for the user-entered components.
This feature is only available if your installation has specifically requested for it.
Default
For each of the standard price basis components that are used as parent price bases, (that
is, the NAV and the Transaction Base Prices) you must assign one default price basis value.
For instance, you have defined the components Offer Price 1 and 2, with the parent price
basis TBP02. You must choose either Offer Price 1 or 2 as the default price basis value for
TBP02.

Setting up Specific Price Dates
The price (Real NAV) applicable for a fund is declared on a daily basis by the Fund Manager.
On any business day, the transactions that are entered are picked up and allocated by the
End of Day process using the Real NAV declared for that business day.
You can also set up a specific date on which all transactions entered during a period can be
allocated, using the price as on that date. This specific date can be maintained for each
transaction type mapped to a fund. A specific pricing frequency can also be set up for the
application of the specific pricing date.
Example
For the Carey Bugle Memorial Fund, a specific price date has been maintained for IPO and
subscription transactions, which is the 15th January 2002. The specific pricing is to be applied
on a monthly frequency basis, the first specific price date being 15th January 2002. The
declared price on this date is 12.45 for IPO, and 12.34 for subscription.
All IPO and subscription transactions that have been entered into the Carey Bugle Fund from
the 1st January 2002 till the 15th January 2002 will be allocated on 15th January 2002, using
the prices 12.45 and 12.34 respectively.
Any IPO or subscription transactions entered between 1st January and 15th can be redeemed
by the concerned unit holders only after 15th January.
The next specific pricing date for IPO and subscription transactions will be 15th February
2002, (the pricing frequency being monthly), and all IPO and subscription transactions
entered between 16th January 2002 and 15th February 2002 will be allocated on this date.
Note
If specific pricing has been defined for a fund, the specific pricing parameters would take
precedence over the pricing method and frequency defined in the General Operating
Rules for the fund.

4.8.3
How pricing frequency is considered
Without Forward Pricing
If the first specific price date is the rule effective date (application date), the next price date is
arrived at based on the pricing frequency as follows:
Pricing Frequency
Next price date
Daily
Last price date + 1 calendar day
Weekly
Last price date + 7 calendar days
Fortnightly
Last price date + 14 calendar days
Monthly
Last price date + 30 calendar days
Quarterly
Last price date + 90 calendar days
Half-Yearly
Last price date + 180 calendar days
Yearly
Last price date incremented by one year
If the next specific price date so arrived at falls on a holiday, the holiday rule defined for the
specific price date is taken into account. Accordingly, the actual price date is taken as the
next working day (if the holiday rule is ‘After’) or the previous working day (if the holiday rule
is ‘Prior’)
4-49
Note
The actual calendar is considered in arriving at the next price date, in the logic discussed
above.
Forward Pricing
If the first specific price date is a date in the future (forward pricing), the next price date is
arrived at based on the following factors:

Pricing frequency that has been specified.

Whether the frequency takes into account the Fund Holiday Calendar or System
Holiday Calendar.

The specified price day, week or month.

The holiday rule indicated for the specific pricing.
The next price date is arrived at as given in the example below for various combinations:

If the next specific price date so arrived at falls on a holiday in the specified calendar (Fund
or System), the holiday rule defined for the specific price date is taken into account.
Accordingly, the actual price date is taken as the next working day (if the holiday rule is ‘Next
Day’) or the previous working day (if the holiday rule is ‘Previous Day’)

4.8.4
How Cut-off Frequency is Considered
The system determines the specific pricing cycle (either current or subsequent) to be used
based on the cut-off frequency and cut-off days defined for the transaction type.
If the transaction date exceeds the cut-off date, the price date is moved to the next specific
pricing cycle.
The cut-off date is arrived at as given in the example below for various combinations:
Cut-off Frequency

Let us suppose the current date is a Wednesday. Since it is beyond the cut-off day for the

The cut-off day is the Monday of the fourth week of the month. If the current date is 10th
September 2003 (say a Wednesday), it falls in the second week of the month. Since it is
before the cut-off day for the present cycle, the specific price date falls on the current cycle,
that is, the pricing on 4th September (the Thursday of the current pricing cycle) is considered.
If, in this same example, the cut-off week is 2, then the cut-off day is the Monday of the second
week of the month. Since the current date, 10th September 2003, a Wednesday, is beyond
the cut-off day, the specific price date is moved to the subsequent cycle, that is, the pricing
on 11th September (the Thursday of the subsequent pricing cycle) is considered.
Note
The number of business working days is considered while determining the cut off days.
The number of cut off days does not include the Fund holiday and the AMC Holiday.

5. Other Fund Activities
5.1
Associating Entities with Funds
This screen can be used to associate entities with a fund. You can maintain either a list of
‘restricted’ entities, or an ‘allowed’ list.
If you maintain a restrictive list as ‘Yes’, only the entities that you maintain in the list in the
Fund Entity Maintenance screen for a fund are restricted from transacting in the selected
fund. If you maintain a restrictive list as ‘No’ , only the entities that you maintain in the list in
the Fund Entity Maintenance screen are allowed to transact in the selected fund. If you
maintain neither a restrictive nor an allowed list, all entities of a type are allowed to transact
in the fund.
Agents
In the case of agents, mapping can be carried out for only those Agents and their branches
as have been created using the Agent and Agency Branch screens. Only those agents and
their branches that have been mapped to a fund as part of an ‘allowed’ list will be able to
accept transactions related to that particular fund. Agents and their branches maintained as
a ‘restrictive’ list will not be able to accept transactions for the fund.
Distributor agents can also be mapped to the fund. This would be required in a scenario
where the Distributor markets certain funds of the AMC, or in cases where a service agent
performs back office processing for an AMC as well as a Distributor.
Customer Categories
Your AMC may wish to restrict investment in a fund based on investor categories, allowing
only investors of certain categories to invest. Also, your AMC may wish to restrict or allow use
of a fund to certain unit holders. You can maintain lists of such allowed / restricted investor
categories (or unit holders) in the Fund Entity Maintenance screen in the Fund Manager
component of the system.
At the transaction entry or upload (including adjustment transactions), standing instructions
entry or upload, or income distribution setup, the unit holders in a restricted list or belonging
to the restricted categories cannot be specified. For an allowed list, at the transaction entry
or upload (including adjustment transactions), standing instructions entry or upload, or
income distribution setup, the unit holders in the allowed list or belonging to the allowed
categories can be specified.
If you maintain neither a restrictive nor an allowed list, all customers are allowed to transact
in the fund.
CIFs
You might need to restrict certain CIFs from a restricted category from transacting in a fund.
You can maintain such restrictions in the Fund Entity Maintenance screen.
You can disallow CIFs belonging to a restricted category (a restrictive list); or, you might
require maintaining a list of CIFs that are allowed to transact in a fund (a positive list).
The system checks the CIF number specified for any transaction that is entered in the
Transaction Detail screens as well as in the Standing Instructions Detail screen, to see if any
restrictions have been maintained that would entail disallowing the specified CIF from
transacting into the fund. The restrictions, if any, applicable at the following levels, would be
enforced:
5-1

Unit Holder Account

CIF

Investor Category
Check Vendors
Using this screen, you can also associate a check vendor that is maintained as an entity in

Based on the installation setup, the system validates Broker fund mapping in one the following
ways:

If any broker or brokerage is mapped to a fund and the restrictive list value is selected
as ‘No’, then only those brokers and the sub-brokers are allowed to transact in the fund.
If any broker or brokerage is mapped to a fund and the restricted list is listed as ‘Yes’,
5-3
then all the brokers apart from the disallowed list are allowed to in the fund, unless you
map the sub-brokers of the disallowed brokers to a particular fund.

If any broker or brokerage is mapped to a fund and the restrictive list value is selected
as ‘No’, then only those brokers are allowed to transact in the fund, the sub-brokers are
not allowed to transact in the mapped fund. If any broker or brokerage is mapped to a
fund and the restricted list is listed as ‘Yes’, then all the brokers apart from the
disallowed list are allowed to transact in the fund, even the sub-brokers of disallowed
parent broker are allowed.

in case of a redemption or a switch transaction.
Ceiling Price
Numeric, Mandatory
Enter the Ceiling Price for the fund. The Ceiling price is to indicate the highest price that the
fund can offer. Based on the loads, if the net transaction price happens to be greater than the

5.13 Corporate Actions for Fund
The holdings of investors in a fund are affected by corporate actions that are declared and
processed in respect of the fund such as liquidations, mergers, splits, reverse splits,
dividends, capital payouts, side pocket creations, side pocket mergers and so on.
These corporate actions are discussed below:
5.13.1
Liquidation
This corporate action simply means the liquidation of the entire corpus of the fund on a date
decided by the fund. The proceeds of such liquidation are paid out to the investors. The date
of liquidation is intimated to the investors in advance, so that they may redeem their holdings,
prior to the liquidation date, if so desired.
5.13.2
Split and Reverse Split
The split corporate action involves the splitting of unit balances of a ‘parent’ fund into a ‘child’
fund. It results in an increase in the total outstanding holdings in the fund. However, both the
par value and the price per unit decrease, according to the split ratio.
The reverse split corporate action results in a decrease in the total outstanding holdings in the
fund. However, both the par value and the price per unit increase, according to the split ratio.
The split or reverse split ratio could result in fractional balances in the new fund, and in the
event of the AMC not allowing such fractional balances, the fractions are redeemed and the
proceeds paid out to the unit holders.
5.13.3
Merger
A merger involves the merging of unit balances from one or more parent funds into a resultant
fund. It can be put through either according to a predetermined user –input ratio or a systemderived ratio of parent fund(s) to the resultant fund
If you wish the system to derive the merger ratio, you should specify the fund(s) being merged
(Parent Fund) and the fund into which the merger is happening (Resultant Fund). The system
will derive the merger ratio based on the available net asset values of the specified funds.
The merger ratio could result in fractional balances in the new fund, and in the event of the
AMC not allowing such fractional balances, the fractions are redeemed and the proceeds paid
out to the unit holders.
5-70
5.13.4
Capital Payout
A capital payout liquidates a preset percentage of unit balances due to transactions in a fund,
the proceeds of which are paid out the corresponding unit holders with balances in the fund
due to the transactions.
The percentage of balances liquidated, could include units as of the price date of the
transaction (all units), transaction date (all or confirmed units) or allocation date (all or
confirmed units).
Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor Servicing provides the facility of maintaining the corporate
actions mentioned above and processing them in respect of a fund.
5.13.5
Side Pocket Creation
Side pockets are special type of accounts used in hedge funds to separate illiquid assets from
other more liquid investments. Once an investment enters a side pocket account, only the
present participants in the hedge fund will be entitled to a share of it. Future investors will not
receive a share of the proceeds in the event the asset's returns get realized.
During side pocket creation, percentage-wise redemption transactions are generated for all
unit holders, based on the split percentage specified in the corporate action. Unit-wise
subscription transactions, equal to units redeemed from the main fund, are generated for side
pocket fund.
5.13.6
Side Pocket Merger
During side pocket mergers, 100% redemption happens in the side pocket fund. Subscription
transactions, equivalent to the side pocket redemption units, are generated for the main fund.
5.13.7
Series Fund Merger
During ‘Series Fund Merger’, the fund series that are maintained separately in the system are
consolidated at period end.
Note
After merger process you need to manually disable the follow-up fund series.

5.13.8.10 Maintaining Details for Series Fund Merger
During series fund merger, the fund series that are maintained separately in the system are
consolidated at period end. For series fund merger, you must maintain related details in the
5-84
Corporate Actions Maintenance screen. Select the ‘Series Fund Merger’ option in the
Corporate Action Type field.
The example given below illustrates the corporate action ‘Series Fund Merger’
Example
Assume that Investor A purchases 1,000 units at the launch of the fund GFUND1, at
US$1,000 per unit (HWM of GFUND1). This will be the "Lead Series" of Unit. It is also
assumed that the incentive fees are being paid quarterly and HWM of fund is Greater of
Subscription Price and Previous high water mark.
Also, assume that at the end of the first month the Gross NAV ("GNAV") (the NAV before
deduction of incentive fee) for GFUND1 has risen to US$1,100 and therefore the NAV will be
US$1,080, net of US$20 / 20% incentive fee (Assuming performance fee is 20%).

NAV for GFUND1 is published at US$1,080
5-85
After the first pricing period, you need to create one more fund, say ‘GFUND2’, with NAV
same as Lead Series. Assume that at this time Investor B subscribes US$1 million for 1,000
Unit (Series II) at, again US$1,000 (HWM of GFUND2) each.
At the end of second month, assuming that value of fund has risen by further 10%:

GNAV of GFUND1 is now US$1,210 = NAV US$1,168; and

GNAV of GFUND2 is now US$1,100 = NAV US$1,080
After second pricing period, you need to create one more fund with NAV same as Lead Series.
Let’s say user create ‘GFUND3’ for creation of Series III as below,
Investor C subscribes US$1 million for 1,000 Series III Unit at, again US$1,000 (HWM of
GFUND3) each.
At the end of the third month, the GNAV has yet again risen by a further 10%, so that:

The GNAV per Share of the GFUND1 (Lead Series) is US$1,331, which translates to
an NAV of US$1, 264.80;

The GNAV of GFUND2 (Series II) is US$1,210, equaling an NAV of US$1,168; and

The GNAV for GFUND1 (Series III) is US$1,100, equaling an NAV of US$1,080.
Thus, at the end of the first quarter, as a High Water-Mark ("HWM") has been reached and
each of the Series of Unit have paid incentive fees, the Series II and Series III Unit can now
be consolidated into the Lead Series.
This can be archived by using Corporate Action screen, by choosing the ‘Series Fund Merger’
option to merge GFUND2 (Series II) and GFUND3 (Series III) into GFNUD1 (Lead Series) as
below,

Units created for Investor B (Lead Series) = (NAV of GFUND2 / NAV of GFUND1) *
Units allotted to Investor B.
Therefore, Investor B's units are worth US$1,168.00, which equates to 923.466 units at the
NAV per Lead Series, at US$1,264.80 each.

Units created for Investor C (Lead Series) = (NAV of GFUND3 / NAV of GFUND1) *
Units allotted to Investor C.
Investor C will effectively liquidate his 1,000 Unit of US$1,080,000 and invest the proceeds of
that liquidation into the Lead Series at US$1,264.80 per share, to receive 853.890 Lead
Series Unit.

5.13.11.6 System Processing for Corporate Actions
Liquidation
During execution, the corporate actions procedure picks up all liquidations whose corporate
action date is the same as the current date, and with status as ‘unprocessed’ or ‘error’.
Subsequently, the pre-processing checks are performed. The liquidation procedure is then
executed, which performs the following actions:

Balances of all unit holders balances in the current fund, as of a date less than the action
date, are picked up, and full redemptions in the fund are generated in respect of these
unit holders

If a reversal or an amendment has been done after original processing, a reversal
transaction is generated for all transactions for the day with a reference type indicating
liquidation

Any underlying standing instructions for the unit holders are marked as ‘Cancelled’; if
any reversal has been done after original processing, the original SI status is restored
5-102

Any unexecuted limit orders for the unit holders are marked as ‘EXPIRED’, and the limit
status for underlying limit orders is marked as ‘ungenerated’
Fund Split / Reverse Split
During execution, the corporate actions procedure picks up all splits (or reverse splits, as
applicable) whose corporate action date is the same as the current date, and with status as
‘unprocessed’ or ‘error’. Subsequently, the pre-processing checks are performed. The split
(or reverse split, as applicable) procedure is then executed, which performs the actions as
shown below, in the appropriate scenario:
When the new fund is the same as the old fund

The fund rule of the new fund is amended and the par value changed to reflect the latest
split / reverse split ratio values

Balances of all unit holders balances in the current fund, as of a date less than the action
date, are picked up

Changes in the outstanding units and the balances of the unit holders based on split /
reverse split ratio, are posted as unit-based subscription transactions (split) or unitbased redemption transactions (reverse split)

Certificates are destroyed and recreated for the new units

Any underlying standing instructions for the unit holders are marked as ‘Cancelled’; if
any reversal has been done after original processing, the original SI status is restored

Any unexecuted limit orders for the unit holders are marked as ‘EXPIRED’, and the limit
status for underlying limit orders is marked as ‘ungenerated’

Subsequently, if any backdated transactions are entered with transaction date being
earlier than the corporate action date, a message is shown, indicating that a corporate
action has been processed within the period (this is done for limit orders and standing
instructions too)

If a reversal or an amendment has been done after original processing, a reversal
transaction is generated for all transactions for the day with a reference type indicating
split or reverse split

Fractional units, if any, that result from the processing of the corporate action, are
computed
When the new fund is not the same as the old fund

The system checks that the new fund is an authorized fund in the system, with no
existing holdings.

The fund rule of the new fund is amended and the par value changed to reflect the latest
split / reverse split ratio values

Balances of all unit holders balances in the old fund, as of a date less than the action
date, are picked up

Unit-based switch transactions are initiated for the unit holders

Any underlying standing instructions for the unit holders in the old fund are marked as
‘expired’; if any reversal has been done after original processing, the original SI status
is restored

Any unexecuted limit orders for the unit holders in the old fund are marked as
‘EXPIRED’, and the limit status for underlying limit orders is marked as ‘ungenerated’

The corporate action is processed after checking the holiday rules, for all the funds

If a reversal or an amendment has been done after original processing, a reversal
transaction is generated for all transactions for the day with a reference type indicating
split or reverse split


Fractional units, if any, that result from the processing of the corporate action, are
computed
Note
When units resulting from processing of a corporate action are redeemed, the computation
of capital gains tax (CGT) in respect of them takes the corporate action into account.
Fund Merger
During execution, the corporate actions procedure picks up all mergers whose corporate
action date is the same as the current date, and with status as ‘unprocessed’ or ‘error’.
Subsequently, the pre-processing checks are performed. In case of the merger ratio not
being specified, the system derives the parent-child ratio based on the respective net asset
values of the funds in the merger.
The merge procedure is then executed, which performs the actions as shown below, in the
appropriate scenario:

The system checks that the new fund is an authorized fund in the system, with no
existing holdings.

The fund rule of the new fund is amended

The par value of the resultant fund is changed to reflect the latest merger ratio values

Balances of all unit holders balances in the old fund, as of a date less than the action
date, are picked up (this procedure is repeated for each of the underlying funds)

Amount-based switch transactions are initiated for the unit holders (this procedure is
repeated for each of the underlying funds)

Any unexecuted limit orders for the unit holders in the old fund are marked as
‘EXPIRED’, and the limit status for underlying limit orders is marked as ‘ungenerated’

The system checks if the standing instructions have to be updated . If you have chosen
to Update SI, the system updates:
–
Changes existing instruction and policy details from the old fund to the resultant
fund.
–
The old Fund ID with the resultant Fund ID
–
The ratio for asset allocation

The system checks if the Income Distribution Setup has to be updated. If so, the system
updates the IDS of the old Fund Id with the resultant Fund Id. If the option chosen for
‘‘Restrict IDS for the Unit Holder’ is ‘No’ for the resultant Fund Id, the update is carried
out. Otherwise the IDS update is not carried out and an error message is logged.

The corporate action is processed after checking the holiday rules, for all the funds

Subsequently, if any backdated transactions are entered with transaction date being
earlier than the corporate action date, a message is shown, indicating that a corporate
action has been processed within the period (this is done for limit orders and standing
instructions too)
Note
When units resulting from processing of a corporate action are redeemed, the computation
of capital gains tax (CGT) in respect of them takes the corporate action into account.

Reconciliation is a process by which you will be able to match the bank statement entries with
the corresponding transaction entries. System allows you to track reconciled, un-reconciled
and partially reconciled transactions with the corresponding reconciled, un-reconciled and
partially reconciled bank statement entries.
On uploading the bank statement, system will try to reconcile the entries automatically and
update the cheque status as provided in the bank statement. Auto Reconciliation will happen
based on the matching of Fund ID, Instrument Number, Instrument Amount and Drawee
Bank/Branch code. Auto reconciled entries will be auto authorized by the system.
Manual reconciliation should be done for entries which the system fails to do auto
reconciliation.
Reconciliation activity can be performed through the ‘Bank Reconciliation Detail’ screen. You

5.15 Computing Performance Fee for Hedge Funds
Hedge fund managers charge the investors a fee called performance fee, which is a
percentage of the gains received by the investor. As investors enter and exit hedge funds at
different points in time, the performance gains received by them also differ accordingly.
Hence, the performance fee calculations are carried out using a special accounting
methodology called equalization accounting which ensures that the fund manager is paid the
correct performance fee and also that the fees are fairly allocated between each investor in
the fund. The investors also receive profit only for the period during which they stay invested
in the fund.
5-118
The following performance fee calculation methods are supported for hedge funds:

EC / CL (Equalization Credit / Contingent Redemption)

FR (Forced Redemption)

EC/ED (Equalization Credit / Equalization Debit): also known as Equalization
Redemption.
Note
Variations to the above listed methods are also possible by setting up new rules and rule
groups in the system.
The different performance fee calculation methods are briefly explained below:
Contingent Liquidation
The contingent liquidation method is an arithmetic method applied to subscriptions made at a
price below the current HWM plus hurdle rate.
The contingent liquidation process helps the investor avoid paying unfair performance fees,
in case the fund recovers in price. This mechanism ensures that the investor pays the same
rate of performance fees as all other investors for any gain in value.
Equalization Credit
The equalization credit method is an arithmetic method applied to subscriptions made at a
price (GAVPS) above the current HWM plus hurdle rate.
The equalization credit process ensures that the investor does not pay performance fees for
performance prior to investing in the fund. This process calculates a number of shares,
identified as the equalization credit holding, in the name of the investor, and is tracked during
the life-time of the dealing lot.
Forced Redemption
The forced redemption method is an arithmetic method applied to all subscriptions made at a
price (GAVPS) regardless of whether it is above or below the current HWM plus hurdle rate.
The forced redemption method ensures that all investors are treated equitably with regard to
the paying of performance fees for performance since investing in the fund. This process
calculates the number of shares to be redeemed either at the point of an early redemption or
at the end of the performance fee period based on the movement of the price since
subscription time.
5.15.1
Processing Performance Fee Payment
An EOD batch ‘Performance Fee Payment Process’ is used to process period end calculation
of performance fee, based on the next payment date defined at the Fund Rule. The steps
involved in the processing of performance fee can be summarized in the steps given below:.
1. If the current application date is greater than or equal to next payment date, the
‘Performance Fee Payment Process’ batch gets executed.
2. During payment processing, the system performs period end calculations as per the
period end rule maintained for the given group and crystallizes the performance fee for all
outstanding inflow transactions captured in the system.

The reference type ‘PE’ identifies the transactions generated due to period end calculations.
5.15.2
Processing Performance Fee Accrual
An EOD batch ‘Performance Fee Accrual Process’ handles the accrual of performance fee,
based on the next accrual date defined at the Fund Rule. The accrual of the performance fee
is carried out as follows:
1. If the current application date is greater than or equal to next accrual date, the
‘Performance Fee Accrual Process’ batch gets executed.
2. The rule mapped for the event ‘Period End’ in Group Rule maintenance, for a given group
Id, is used for performance fee accrual calculations.
3. Once accrual processing gets completed, the system updates the ‘Last Accrual date’ as
current application date and ‘Next Accrual date’ as ‘current application date + accrual
frequency’ for the fund rule.
Note
Accruals are performed only for reporting purpose and there will be no impact on transaction processing or further performance fee calculation.
5.15.3
Modifying Performance Fee Calculation Method
If you wish to change the performance fee calculation method for a given fund, you need to
perform the steps given below. Two scenarios are explained based on the crystallization of
the performance fee.
Case 1:
In this scenario, the crystallization of the performance fee is not required using existing
performance fee method.
1. Create a new group ID that represents the new performance fee calculation method.
2. Amend the fund rule to replace the old Group ID with the new Group ID.
3. On BOD of new rule effective date, the system updates the fund rule with newly mapped
group and starts accruing and applying performance fee based on this new method.
Example:
Assume that the existing Fund Rule setup is as given below:

Fund ID: HFUND1

Rule Effective Date: 01-Jan-2009

Group ID: 8001 (Represents EC/CL methodology)

Last Payment Date : 31-Dec-2008

Next Payment Date : 31-Dec-2009

Application Date: 15-Jan-2009
Above setup indicates that the fund 'HFUND1' uses 'EC/CL' methodology for calculating
performance fee. If you want to change the PF calculation method for the fund from ‘EC/CL’
5-120
to ‘FR’ (e.g. Group ID '8002') from 01-May-2009 onwards and period end processing is not
required, then you need to perform the steps given below.
1. Amend the fund ‘HFUND1’; change the Group ID to 8002 which represent ‘FR calculation
methodology’ and specify the new Rule Effective Date for the fund as ’01-May-2009’.
2. On BOD of ’01-May-2009’, system will update group Id for fund ‘HFUND1 as 8002.
3. From 01-May onwards, the system starts applying performance fee based on ‘FR
methodology’.
4. On 31-Dec, system executes the period end calculation based on ‘FR methodology’.
Case 2:
In this scenario, the performance fee needs to be crystallized using existing performance fee
method.
1. Create a new group ID that represents the new performance fee calculation method.
2. Amend the fund rule and update ‘Next Payment Date’, so that the system performs period
end calculations as per the existing Group.
3. On BOD of new rule effective date, the system updates the Next Payment Date.
4. Before EOD of Next Payment Date, amend the fund rule to map with the new Group ID
and specify the next payment date and next accrual date.
5. On EOD, the system performs period end processing as per the existing Group ID.
6. On BOD of New Rule Effective Date, the system updates the Group ID with the new
Group ID.
7. From this date onwards the system calculates performance fee based on the new Group
ID.
Example
Assume that the existing Fund Rule setup is as given below:

Fund ID: HFUND1

Rule Effective Date: 01-Jan-2009

Group ID: 8001 (Represents EC/CL methodology)

Last Payment Date : 31-Dec-2008

Next Payment Date : 31-Dec-2009

Application Date: 15-Jan-2009
The above Fund Rule setup indicates that the fund 'HFUND1' is using 'EC/CL' methodology
for calculating performance fee. If you want to change the PF calculation method for the fund
from ‘EC/CL’ to ‘FR’ (e.g. Group ID '8002') from 01-May-2009 onwards and want the system
to process period end calculation using existing method (8001) then, hen you need to perform
the steps given below.
1. Amend the fund ‘HFUND1’; specify the new Rule Effective Date for the fund as ’16-Jan2009’ and change the Next Payment date to ’30-Apr-2009’ which represents next period
end date. (Next Payment Date should be grater then new Rule Effective Date)
2. On BOD of ’16-Jan-2009’, the system updates Next Payment Date as ’30-Apr-2009’ for
fund ‘HFUND1’.
3. Before EOD of ’30-Apr-2009’, amend the fund ‘HFUND1’ and specify the new Rule
Effective Date for the fund as ’01-May-2009’; Change the Group ID to ‘8002’ and Next
Payment date to ’31-Dec-2009’ for new group (8002).
5-121
4. On EOD of ’30-Apr-2009’, the system executes the period end calculation based on
Group 8001 (EC/CL methodology).
5. On BOD of ’01-May-2009’, the system updates group Id to 8002 (FR methodology) and
Next Payment Date to ’31-Dec-2009’ for fund ‘HFUND1’.
6. From 01-May -2009 onwards, the system starts applying performance fee calculations
based on Group Id 8002 (‘FR methodology’).
5.15.4
Series Method of Performance Fee Calculation
In the series method of performance fee calculation, a new series is created for a fund each
time there are new subscribers for each pricing period during the performance fee period.
These series are maintained separately until the time they are consolidated with other series
belonging to the same fund.
The consolidation for each of the subsequent series issued usually happens at the end of
every accounting period. For the consolidation to happen, an incentive fee needs to be paid
for each of the series, including the series in which it is being merged, which could be done
quarterly, half-yearly, or annually.
Note
You need to manually create new fund series for each fund pricing period and also handle
the consolidation of the fund series operationally. The system does not provide any automated tasks to achieve this.
5.16 Maintaining Override Trade Cycles Date For Funds
You can specify trade cycle dates that are different from the ones defined for a fund for
transactions falling within a limited period (known as the ‘Override Period’). If you maintain
these details, for the transactions that take place within the period, the system will use the
dates you have maintained rather than the ones at the fund level. This facility is available only
for funds with specific fund prices and for the following events:

Enrichment and Saving of UT Transactions

Generation of SI Transactions

Generation of Dividend Transactions

Redemption of Periodic Loads

Generation of UT transactions for LEP

Generation of Policy SI – UT transactions

working day of the transaction currency as settlement date
Price Date
Date Format; Mandatory
Enter a valid date as the price date. The date entered should be greater than or equal to the
‘Transaction To Date’ but not a fund holiday.
After you authorize the maintenance, the dealing date, settlement date and price date for a
transaction type will be displayed in the transaction if the transactions falls within the override
period specified and if no transaction has been allotted within the override period.
Note
–
There should not be any overlap in the trade cycles maintained
–
The price date should be greater than or equal to the first price date maintained
under ‘General Operating Rules’ for the fund.
–
If holiday maintenance for the system calendar is not available, system will use the
default weekend holidays from the default maintenance
–
The trade details will be default for both LEP transactions as well as systemgenerated ones.
–
If a transaction is being reversed or a backdated transaction entered, the system
will pick up the relevant override trade cycle maintenance based on the type and
date of the transaction
–
Existing override trade cycle maintenances can be closed only if there are no nonreversed or unauthorized transactions in the system.

6. Setting up Load Groups
6.1
Load Groups
The AMC may need to group funds together based on common load and transaction
processing characteristics, such as the same loads being applied to transactions in all funds
in the group, or applicability of certain preferences maintained for investors.
Such a group of funds, which entail common load or transaction processing characteristics,
are called load groups.
This is typical in the case of loads that are cumulative across funds (such as in the case of
Rights of Accumulation), and also load patterns for Letter of Intent investors. This is also
typical in the case of loads that are applied to funds that form part of a investment product or
policy (plan) portfolio.
6.1.1
Rights of Accumulation
The AMC may give investors benefits based on the history of their investment in the funds of
the AMC. This benefit would typically be a fee benefit, such as reduced transaction charges
or reduced commissions, and is offered based on the history of investments.
This benefit facility given to the investor is known as the Rights of Accumulation facility.
Investors are given the option of availing of the Rights of Accumulation, at their discretion.
Thus, when an investor transacts in a fund of the AMC, the history of the investor’s
transactions in the fund is considered when the fee is applied for the transaction, if the investor
has chosen to avail of the Rights of Accumulation facility.
The AMC reserves the discretion to interpret the history of investment of each investor on the
basis of which, the Rights of Accumulation benefit would be available. Also, the AMC
reserves the discretion to identify a single fund or a group of funds for which it would offer the
Rights of Accumulation facility to investors, as well as the method of interpretation of
investments, to be applicable for each group. The AMC can also specify whether the holdings
across all the investors under a CIF account are to be considered for ROA.
Any individual fund for which the AMC designates Rights of Accumulation as applicable are
called ROA funds, and any group of such funds is called an ROA group. An investor that opts
to avail of the Rights of Accumulation is called an ROA investor. Also, the investor can
override the AMC option of availing ROA at a CIF account level.
Interpreting the history of investments
The interpretation of the past investments of an investor in the case of Rights of Accumulation,
for any ROA group of funds, would be based on any of the following aspects, at the AMC’
choice:

Option (1): The total amount invested by the investor in all the funds in an ROA group
of the AMC as on the transaction date

Option (2): The product of the current holdings in all funds of the ROA group and the
prevalent NAV for each fund in the ROA group on the transaction date.

Option (3): The product of the current holdings in all funds of the ROA group and the
prevalent subscription price for each fund in the ROA group on the transaction date.

Option (4): Option (1) or (2), depending upon which of the two values is higher

Option (5): Option (1) or (3), depending upon which of the two values is higher
6-1

Option (6): The total value of the transactions entered into on the current business day
in all individual funds, as well as funds forming part of a load group or a plan or policy
portfolio. This option is known as the current day transactions value.
Depending upon the option chosen by the AMC for each ROA group of funds, any new
transaction for the investor in the ROA group would take into consideration the value of the
past investments, when the slab for loading is considered.
The following example will make this clearer:
For instance, let us suppose that an ROA investor, Mr. Colin White, would like to invest 10000
currency units in the Carey Bugle Growth Fund, which is part of an ROA group of funds known
as LGROA, on 02-01-2003.
Before 02-01-2003, he has invested in the LGROA group of funds of which the Carey Bugle
fund is a constituent, as follows:
Fund of ROA group
(LGROA)
Present holdings
(units)
Total amount invested in
ROA group (TA1)
Carey Bugle Growth Fund
(CBGF)
10000
100000
Farley Income Fund (FIF)
5000
50000
15000 (sum)
150000 (sum)
The worth of the holdings in the LGROA group in terms of NAV prevalent on 02-01-2003:
Fund
Present holdings
(units)
NAV on 0201-2003
Total worth of
holdings (TA2)
CBGF
10000
12
120000
FIF
5000
12
60000
15000 (sum)
180000 (sum)
The worth of the holdings in the LGROA group in terms of subscription prices on 02-01-2003:
Fund
Present holdings
(units)
Subscription price
on 02-01-2003
Total worth of
holdings (TA3)
CBGF
10000
11
110000
FIF
5000
12
60000
15000 (sum)
170000 (sum)
The AMC has chosen Option (4) as the basis for applicability of Rights of Accumulation for
the LGROA group. Since the value TA2 is higher than TA1, the value taken for identifying the
loading slab for any new transactions for Mr. White in the LGROA group is taken to be TA2.
6-2
The load slabs defined for the LGROA group, of which the two funds are a part, are as follows:
Slab
From Amount
To Amount
Return Value (%)
001
0
10000
5
002
10000
20000
4
003
20000
40000
3
004
40000
80000
2
005
80000
16000
1
006
160000
320000
0.25
Now for Mr. White’s subscription transaction of 10000 currency units on 02-01-2003, the
amount considered for identifying the slab, according to the ROA option chosen by the AMC
for the LGROA group = Transaction Amount + TA2 = 10000 + 180000 = 190000 currency
units.
This would fall in slab 006 for the fund and so, the applicable return value percentage would
be 0.25%.
6.1.2
Creating Load Groups
In Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor Servicing, you create a load group as follows:

Give the load group a unique identifier (ID) and identify the funds that will constitute the
load group. A fund can be mapped to more than one load group.

Indicate the load and transaction processing characteristics that would apply to
transactions in any of the funds belonging to the group. This includes specifying Letter
of Intent (LOI) applicability and Rights of Accumulation (ROA) applicability. If ROA is
applicable, you must also specify the method of computation applicable.

Map any required loads to the group in the Group Load Mapping screen.

Have the load group authorized by another user.. The Group Definition (Summary)
screen can be used for this. This screen can be accessed through the Group Definition
(Summary) menu item in the Maintenance menu category in the Fund Manager
component.

Non-fulfillment of Letter of Intent
If an investor does not bring in the investment amount promised in a letter of intent, before the
expiry of the letter of intent, it constitutes non-fulfilment, and the AMC can recover the
applicable commission that would have been due without the letter of intent.
The system monitors the fulfilment of letters of intent. The following facilities are available in
the system:
Prior Warning Report
On the date that marks the beginning of the start of the lead time period for the load group, a
prior warning report is generated by the system during the Beginning of Day (BOD) process.
This report contains information about those letters of intent that have not been fulfilled as on
that date.
For instance, if the letter of intent expires on 15th June 2002 and the lead-time specified for
the load group is 10 days, , a BOD process is executed on 5th June 2002 to ascertain whether
the investor has satisfied the letter of intent amount agreed upon. This verification is
performed for all letters of intent.
The report identifies and displays the following information for each letter of intent for any
investor which is unfulfilled as on the date that marks the beginning of the lead time period:

LOI Number

LOI start date

LOI end date (expiry date)

LOI amount

Amount fulfilled or used up as on the current date

Amount remaining unfulfilled as on the current date. This is computed as the difference
between the LOI amount and the Amount Used Up as on the current date

The Load Group to which the fund belongs, for which the LOI has been set up for the
investor

The lead time period specified for the load group
Post-Adjustment Report
In the event of non-fulfilment of a letter of intent, you can obtain a report (known as the post
adjustment report) that displays the actual commission that would have been due on any
transactions entered into by the investor, had the letter of intent not been applied.
To obtain such a report, you must trigger the computation and storing of the actual
commission data, from the system database. You can use the ‘Lol Adjust Proc’ screen for this.
6-15
You can invoke this screen by typing ‘UTDLOIPR’ in the field at the top right corner of the
Application tool bar and clicking on the adjoining arrow button.
In this screen, you must specify the LOI number of the corresponding letter of intent, on the
next business date after the expiry date of the letter of intent. Click on the Process button to
trigger the process of computation and storage. Alternatively, if you do not specify the
number, you can trigger the computation of commission data for all such letters of intent that
are unfulfilled, after the expiry date.
After you have triggered the computation of commission data, in the LOI Adjustment
Processing screen, you can use the LOI Non-Fulfilment menu item in the Batch menu to
obtain the actual report.
The report contains details of the actual commission due on each of the transactions without
considering the letter of intent. This amount must be recovered from the unit holder by the
AMC.
The following details are displayed in the report for each letter of intent for any investor which
is unfulfilled as on the next business date after the expiry date :

LOI Number

Letter of intent amount agreed (LOI amount)

Letter of intent amount fulfilled (used up amount)

ID of the load group to which the fund belongs, for which the LOI was set up for the
investor

The funds in the load group

Transaction number, for each transaction designated as an LOI transaction

Commission collected for the transaction

Actual commission that should have been collected had there been no letter of intent.

The loss borne by the AMC, which is computed as the difference between the
commission collected and commission that should have been collected had there been
no LOI.
The commission for each of the LOI transactions entered into during the LOI period is
recomputed as if there had been no letter of intent. For each transaction, the actual
commission collected and the commission that should have been collected without the LOI is
6-16
displayed. The sum of the commissions will be subtracted from the actual commission
collected and the difference is reported through the report.
6.2
Group Load Mapping
To designate different fees or incentives that are levied during the processing of transactions,
as applicable for transactions in funds of specific load groups, use the ‘Group Load Mapping
Detail’ Screen.

7. Maintenance for IRA Products
7.1
Introduction
Your AMC could offer investors the facility of maintaining and processing retirement plans.
7.2
Features of Individual Retirement Accounts
One of the typical modes of retirement planning that is opted for by investors is investing in
mutual funds through an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). The contributions of an investor
into an IRA could be either taxed, or could be non-taxable, depending upon the type of IRA.
The income on the assets in an IRA is typically tax-sheltered.
An investor obtains an IRA by purchasing or subscribing to a retirement plan under one of the
retirement investment products offered by your company. Investment into an IRA could be
increased over a period of time during the tenor of the plan, either through premiums or
additional investments, or both. The investor could also be paid annuity, if such a feature is
available in the plan.
Generally, a retirement age is set for a retirement plan, so that when the investor reaches the
retirement age, withdrawals can be availed. After the retirement age is reached, no further
additional investments or premiums can be contributed to the plan, but regular withdrawals
and annuities, if applicable, are allowed. In the case of Roth IRA Retirement Plans,
contributions can be made after retirement age. The age up to which contributions can be
made is the retirement age at which withdrawals are required.
The contribution made by an investor into an IRA plan is directed into the specific fund opted
for by the investor, in the underlying portfolio of funds defined for the product under which the
plan was purchased.
The income derived from investment into the product portfolio could be reinvested back into
the portfolio, or received as payment. The income could be taxed under applicable laws, or
tax-sheltered, depending upon the tax laws of the country and the guidelines of the plan.
This chapter explains the manner in which you can configure Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor
Servicing to process investment in IRA plans for an investor.
7.2.1
Features of IRA Processing
In Oracle FLEXCUBE Investor Servicing, you can maintain and process investments into
IRA’s for an investor. This would involve the following processes:
You can maintain the different types of retirement products offered by your organization. Each
type can be characterized by different attributes. You can define patterns of investment in
IRA’s and fund portfolios for each product, by applying the specifications made for a product
type.
Investment transactions into IRA’s can also be processed, such as the initial investment,
additional investments, premiums and partial or complete withdrawals.
Distribution of the income derived from investment into the funds portfolio is also managed in
the system. You can configure the system to process the income as desired by investors,
either through reinvestment or payment, or a combination of both.
7-1
7.2.2
Maintenance for IRA Processing
Funds
You must define IRA processing rules for each fund of your AMC into which you wish to allow
IRA investments. These guidelines include whether IRA investments are allowed into the
fund, and the volume limits that would apply to such IRA transactions into the fund.
For a detailed description of the rules maintained for funds, which pertain to IRA
transactions, refer the chapter Setting Up Funds, in the Fund Setup user manual.
Product Types
You should maintain the different types of products that your AMC offers to investors, for IRA
transactions. You can define different attributes for each product type.
Products
You must define each of the products that your AMC offers, with the processing guidelines
that will apply to any plans or policies purchased under the product. As with product types,
you can tailor the attributes of the products to suit your requirement
Typically, when you define a product, you associate the funds that would be part of the
product portfolio. Processing guidelines for IRA transactions must be defined for each of the
funds that you have associated.
7.2.3
Plans for IRA
When an investor buys an IRA plan in one of the retirement products floated by your AMC,
you can maintain the details of the plan in the system. All the processing guidelines and
details maintained for the product under which the plan was purchased will apply to the plan.
You can, however, make appropriate changes as necessary, to the guidelines when you
maintain the details of the plan in the system.
7.2.4
Investment Transactions in IRA Plans
An investor who subscribes to a retirement plan subscribes an initial amount, which may or
may not be increased during the tenor of the plan. Contributing additional investments during
the tenor of the plan can increase in the investment amount, provided additional investments
are allowed for the product in which the plan is purchased. If the product involves a product
type for which premiums are also applicable, the investment can also be increased by
premiums.
Therefore, the following inflow investments could occur into an IRA plan:

An initial investment

Additional investment (if allowed for the product in which the plan is subscribed)

Premiums (if premiums are allowed for the product in which the plan is subscribed)
Earnings from the investment could be availed through partial or complete withdrawals, or
through annuities, provided withdrawals and annuities are applicable for the product in which
the plan is subscribed.
You can enter and process each of these transactions in the system.
Each of the transactions, when requested, could be directed into any of the funds opted for
by the investor, in the product under which the plan was purchased. All the transaction
processing guidelines specified for the product (and the plan) will be applied to the
transaction. Also, the limits maintained for the fund in which the transaction is requested, will
also be validated.
