6. Investing through the Portal

You are required to acknowledge that you have read the relevant KIID and SID for a fund before entering into a transaction on the Portal.
 
Transactions entered on the Portal will be with MWP as the counterparty. When entering into a transaction on the Portal you will be transferred to a secure payment page of a third-party payment service provider. The content and operation of the secure payment page is the responsibility of the relevant payment service provider and is not controlled or maintained by MWP.

Our transfer agent, T.Bailey Fund Services Limited, use a product provided by TrueLayer Limited (www.truelayer.com) (“TrueLayer”) to initiate payments from your payment account.

To deal online, you will be asked to consent to the payment via TrueLayer and agree to TrueLayer’s terms of service (“Terms of Service”). The Terms of Service set out the terms on which you agree to TrueLayer initiating payment from your payment account.

TrueLayer is subject to UK and EU data protection laws and is required to treat your data in accordance with those laws, as well as the Terms of Service and TrueLayer’s Privacy Policy.

TrueLayer is authorised by the UK Financial Conduct Authority under the Payment Services Regulations 2017 to provide account information services and payment initiation services (Firm Reference Number: 901096).

Limits may be imposed by your bank. Any such limits can be found by accessing the Faster Payments website, http://www.fasterpayments.org.uk/.

You accept full and sole responsibility for all transactions entered into by you through the Portal. By authenticating and authorising the payment using your bank’s online service, which is accessed via TrueLayer, you confirm that the credentials you are using are yours. If your bank refuses to authorise payment, we will not accept your order and we will not be liable for any delay as a consequence.

You agree that MWP may rely and act on instructions issued by you, and which MWP reasonably believes to have been made by you, on the Portal without further enquiry. You will be bound by any transaction entered into and any expenses incurred on your behalf in reliance on such instructions.

MWP may refrain from acting on any instructions if in its sole opinion:

- it believes there may be, or is, unauthorised use of your username, password or PIN or that such instructions are otherwise not in accordance with these Terms; and/or
 
- the details and documents provided by you are incomplete, illegible, inconsistent or otherwise are not in accordance with the details and documents required to proceed with your transaction; and/or

- there is any practice or history of questionable transactions.

MWP may contact you to verify any instruction or transaction initiated or completed by you via the Portal. If you are unsure if any order you have placed has been received or processed, please contact us as soon as reasonably possible.
