7 Declaration and Authorisation
I understand that it’s Cofunds normal business practice to process my conversion
following receipt of my instruction. The instruction to convert is then passed to the Fund/
Plan Manager who will convert and confirm back to Cofunds upon completion. Cofunds
upon receipt of confirmation will then reflect the change(s) to my accounts. This process
is subject to change dependant on volumes and individual Fund/Plan Manager processing
procedures. I authorise Cofunds to convert on my behalf as outlined above.
I understand that Cofunds will convert commission-included share class funds to their
commission-free share class equivalent where available to my intermediary.
I understand that Cofunds will convert commission-free share class funds to
commission-free exclusive share class funds where available to my intermediary.
I authorise Cofunds to convert on my behalf as indicated above. I understand that if
applicable, any application to convert ISA funds will be deemed to include all former ISA and
PEP products. I confirm that I have received the relevant product Key Features/Fund specific
information and/or Key Investor Information Documents relating to my investment.
I have viewed the Terms and Conditions of the Cofunds Platform (Self-directed Explicit
Pricing) and/or Customer Agreement relevant to the product I’m investing in, and, by
submitting this application form, I agree to be bound by that agreement.
I understand that there are fees (the Cofunds Platform Charges) for the use of Cofunds
services. I authorise Cofunds to collect these fees from my Cofunds Cash Account. If
there is insufficient money in my account, I authorise Cofunds to sell enough of my
Platform Assets to pay these fees in accordance with the ‘Our Charges’ section of the
Terms and Conditions of the Cofunds Platform (Self-directed Explicit Pricing).
I understand that the Customer Agreement relevant to the product I’m investing in sets
out the standard terms upon which Cofunds intends to rely, and it is important that I
should read and understand the terms before agreeing to be bound by them. If there is
any term or point I do not understand or do not wish to be bound by, I understand that I
can request further information before signing this application.
For the L&G Portfolio Plus/SIPP and L&G International Portfolio Bond, where there is
insufficient money in my cash account to pay the Platform Charge and I have an existing
Sale for Regular Payment mandate or Fund Sale Instruction, I authorise Cofunds to sell
funds from my ISA and/or investment funds in accordance with this mandate to cover the
charge. I understand that this may result in commission-included share class funds being
sold to cover this charge.
I agree to:
• The Platform Charge
•The Sale for Regular Payment Process in respect of the Platform Charge in circumstances
where I have an existing mandate

agree that funds will be sold to settle any outstanding fees and charges which have
accrued prior to this date and all fees and charges payable hereafter.
Service Charge
I confirm that I have received my Fees and Charges Schedule and understand which
fees and charges are applicable to my investment. I hereby instruct Cofunds to pay my
intermediary the Service Charge specified in Section 5 of this form and in my Fees and
Charges Schedule from my relevant payment account.
Cofunds will accept authority from the primary holder only, in most circumstances.
For trusts and Powers of Attorney more than one signature may be required.
If I have an active Sale for Regular Payment mandate or the segment linked to my
investment applies to a Fund Sale Instruction (as described in my Fees and Charges
Schedule) and there is insufficient money within the relevant payment account, I
authorise Cofunds to sell enough of my platform assets to pay the Service Charge in
accordance with the relevant Terms and Conditions of the Cofunds Platform or Customer
Agreement applicable to my investments/assets.
