Irish Collective Asset-Management Vehicles Act 2015
Refusal to register transfer of shares
43. (1) An ICAV may, before the end of the period of 2 months commencing with the date of receipt of the transfer documents relating to any transfer of shares, refuse to register the transfer if—
(a) there exists a minimum requirement as to the number or value of shares that are to be held by any shareholder of the ICAV and the transfer would result in either the transferor or transferee holding less than the required minimum, or
(b) the transfer would result in a contravention of any provision of the ICAV’s instrument of incorporation or would produce a result inconsistent with any provision of the ICAV’s prospectus.
(2) An ICAV shall give the transferee written notice of any refusal to register a transfer of shares.
(3) But an ICAV is not required to register a transfer or give notice to any person of a refusal to register a transfer where registering the transfer or giving the notice would result in a contravention of any provision of law (including any law that is for the time being in force in a country or territory other than the State).
(4) If an ICAV fails to give notice as required by subsection (2) the ICAV and any officer of it who is in default commits a category 3 offence.
