How may I transfer my investments to someone else?

Please note that we will require certain documentation, the nature of which will depend upon the circumstances:

In the event of the death of an individual:

1. Certified copy of the death certificate

2. Copy of the Will;

3. Letters of Office or Administration (typically issued by the State) identifying the executor of the estate; and

4. Letter of Direction or Transfer of Interest in the Event of a Death Form signed by the executor delineating the legal name, tax identification number and mailing address of the estate. When the executor is ready to distribute the assets of the estate, we will also require such instructions in writing, including the name, tax identification number and mailing address for each legatee of the estate. The transfer from the deceased to his or her estate, and from the estate to the legatee(s), may be effected on the same day, if so desired.

In the event of the death of the grantor of a trust:

1. Certified copy of the death certificate;

2. Copy of the trust document, identifying the trustees and successor trustees; and

3. Letter of Direction or Transfer of Interest in the Event of a Death Form signed by the appropriate trustees and/or successor trustees delineating the legal name, tax identification number and mailing address of the beneficiaries of the trust.

In the event of a gift:

1. Letter of Direction or Transfer of Interest in the Event of a Gift Form signed by the appropriate party (owner, trustee, etc.). The letter should include the legal name, tax identification number and mailing address of the person or persons to whom the units are being transferred; and

2. If the gift is being made by a trust, a copy of the trust document must also be furnished.

In each case, please note:

1. When we are in receipt of the above documentation, we will draw up a form of Assignment to be executed by all parties;

2. If the interest is being transferred to a trust, we will require a copy of the trust document in order to establish this type of new account;

3. We require original signatures and are unable to accept documents and correspondence in connection with transfers via facsimile or e-mail; and

4. All information should be directed to us at:
