What is the mFund Settlement Service?
Operated by ASX, the mFund Settlement Service allows investors to buy and sell units in some Funds offered by GSFM using a more streamlined transaction and settlement process.
Investors can easily buy (apply for) and sell (redeem) units in mFunds via a participating broker. mFund provides for online transactions that are settled using CHESS, the ASX’s electronic settlement system. All transactions are recorded against the investor’s Holder Identification Number (HIN); this means listed and unlisted investments can be recorded in one place.
More information about mFund is available in this brochure published by ASX.
