Information about Income/Accumulation Shares

There are currently two Share types available in each Share Class ('A' and 'X') in the majority of our funds: Income or Accumulation.

Income Shares:

If you invest in Income Shares the net income arising on your holding will be paid directly to your bank or building society account. In the case of Accumulation Shares not being available in your fund of choice you will also have the option to have your income reinvested. Distribution dates for each fund can be found in the fund prices area of our main website.

Please note that within The M&G ISA only Income Shares are available.

Please note: Sterling Class X Shares are no longer available for new investment in The M&G ISA and The M&G Junior ISA.

Accumulation Shares:

If you invest in Accumulation Shares, the net income arising on your holding will be automatically reinvested and this will therefore be reflected in the share price.

Please note that within The M&G Savings Plan only Accumulation Shares are available.
