Selected Bell Asset Management funds now available on mFund

What is the mFund Settlement Service?

The mFund Settlement Service enables investors to buy and sell units in selected Bell Asset Management funds via a stockbroker or adviser through a process similar to buying and selling shares.

You can easily buy (apply for) and sell (redeem) units in these unlisted managed funds via a participating broker and the transactions are settled using CHESS, ASX’s electronic settlement system. Your holdings in these funds are held electronically and can be linked to the same Holder Identification Number (HIN) used to hold other investments transacted through ASX.

This means you can track your investments in these funds using the same systems you use for shares and other securities. So now it’s faster and more convenient than ever before to diversify your portfolio.
