Change of Unit Registry Services

As part of our ongoing commitment to improving our investor experience, on 17 May 2021 we transitioned unit registry services of the Spheria Australian Smaller Companies Fund, Spheria Australian Microcap Fund, Spheria Opportunities Fund and Spheria Global Microcap Fund from RBC Investor Services to Citi. While the transition will result in a change to existing unitholder account numbers, it includes a significant number of benefits including access to a simple and easy-to-use online investor portal.

What changes because of the transition?

All unitholders have received a new Investor Number.

  • For unitholders whose communication preference is email, you should have received an email from Pinnacle prior to Monday 17 May 2021 notifying you of your new investor number
  • For unitholders whose communication preference is post, a letter should have been posted to you prior to Monday 17 May 2021 notifying you of your new investor number. If you have not received the letter by Monday 17 May 2021 and require your new investor number, please call Pinnacle on 1300 010 311 or email service@pinnacleinvestment.com
  • All previous account and client numbers are no longer valid.

What are the benefits of the transition? 

One of the key benefits of the transition is that investors will be able to manage their holdings via Pinnacle’s secure and accessible online Investor Portal. Existing investors will need to register for the Pinnacle Investor Portal by visiting the Pinnacle Investor Portal and following these steps:

  • Enter the email address and mobile number that you want linked to your account. Each time you log into the Portal, an eight-digit PIN will be generated and sent to your mobile number. Please ensure you have your mobile on you so you can enter this PIN when prompted.
  • Once your email address and mobile number is loaded into the registry system, you will receive two emails. One will contain your User ID and the second your temporary password. As an additional safeguard, we utilise a one-time PIN as a second-level of authorisation.
  • Re-set your password and log into the Portal

You will then have access to a single online interface to:

  • Submit trade instructions such as additional applications and redemptions;
  • Update and manage unitholder details such as address and distribution preference;
  • View performance, unit balances, and transaction history; and
  • Access all statements

Financial advisers benefit by having a consolidated view of their clients’ holdings via the one login. Advisers can only link one email address and one mobile phone number to their Pinnacle Investor Portal account.

Should you have any questions regarding the Pinnacle Investor Portal, please call Pinnacle on 1300 010 311 (International +61 2 8970 7750) or email service@pinnacleinvestment.com.
