In September 2015 the Irish Stock Exchange (“ISE”) will introduce a new process for submitting Net Asset Values (“NAV”) in relation to listed funds.  The new process will operate through the ISE’s online portal www.isedirect.ie.

The new system will provide a more secure environment for users and will facilitate real time intraday updates, together with the added benefit of a single centralised location where users can access ISE services in relation to ISIN, NAVs and LEIs all via their account.

From June 2015 users will be able to register their individual email address and contact details with www.isedirect.ie in preparation for launch.  From the September 2015 launch date, the ISE will only accept NAV updates either through their portal or through their automated service autonav@ise.ie from registered users.

Listed funds should note that it is an ISE listing requirement that the most up to date NAV is submitted to the ISE immediately upon calculation.  Failure to do this is deemed a breach of the ISE’s continuing obligations.  It is therefore imperative that all listed funds register online to avail of this service by September 2015.  Any NAVs submitted to the ISE after this time through NAV@ise.ie, by fax or in hard copy, will not be filed or published.
