Following two new instruments have been added under the new “FUNDS” board



Listed REITs will behave like a security. Characteristics of the REITs Board are:

- Similar settlement cycle to equities (T+3)

- Frequent dividend distributions

- Lower transaction and listing fees to boost trading activity.

The REITS board will not be related to market segmentation. It will be a standalone board to trade

listed REITS and mutual funds.

Both funds will be treated like a security in terms of tick size, price limits, and them

presence on the BUY-IN board.
