LONDON, Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TFG notes the UK Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA") rules relating to the restrictions on the retail distribution of unregulated collective investment schemes and close substitutes (referred to as "non-mainstream pooled investments"), which came into effect on 1 January 2014.
TFG has received appropriate legal advice that confirms that TFG's shares do not constitute NMPI under the FCA's rules and are, therefore, excluded from the FCA's restrictions that apply to non-mainstream pooled investment products.
TFG expects that it will continue to conduct its affairs in such a manner that TFG's shares will continue to be excluded from the FCA's rules relating to NMPI.
