Standard Life Investments (59% Brent Cross owner) closes fund to stop panic

Link to The Guardian

"Investors in Standard Life's property funds have been told that they cannot withdraw their money, after the firm acted to stop a rush of withdrawals following the UK's decision to leave the EU.

"The firm halted trading on its Standard Life Investments UK Real Estate Fund and associated funds at midday on Monday, citing 'exceptional market circumstances' for the decision. It said the suspension would remain in place until it is 'practicable' to lift it, and that it would review the decision at least every 28 days.

"The £2.9bn fund, which invests in commercial properties including shopping centres, warehouses and offices, is thought to be the first UK property fund to suspend trading since the 2007-2009 financial crisis, when some of the biggest names in investment management stopped withdrawals because they did not have the money to repay investors."
