Transfer of registered shares

42. (1) Subject to subsection (2), and despite anything in the instrument of incorporation of an ICAV, it shall not be lawful for the ICAV to register a transfer of shares in or debentures of the ICAV unless a proper instrument of transfer has been delivered to the ICAV.

(2) Nothing in subsection (1) shall prejudice any power of the ICAV to register as shareholder or debenture holder any person to whom the right to any shares in, or debentures of, the ICAV has been transmitted by operation of law.

(3) If an ICAV registers a transfer in contravention of this section the ICAV and any officer of it who is in default commits a category 3 offence.

(4) In this section “instrument of transfer” means such evidence as is required to prove the right of the transferor to transfer the shares as set out in the instrument of incorporation of the ICAV or the prospectus of the ICAV.
