It was further explained that the fund has 90 days minimum holding period with N500,000 as the minimum investment, a management fee of 1.50 per cent and a 0.75 per cent penalty on the accrued income for redeeming within the minimum holding period.

DLM Capital further said the fund is constituted by a Trust Deed in favour of UTL Trust Management Services Limited as a trustee with 5 million units being offered for subscription.

The DLM Fixed Income Fund will be managed by DLM Asset Management Limited, the asset management unit of the DLM Capital Group, the statement further stated.
