Virtus Funds utilizes a third party vendor to assist in locating shareholders?
Virtus utilizes Sovos Keane, a leading provider of unclaimed property communications, compliance, and consulting services in the country, to assist in locating lost shareholders. Therefore, if your account is considered abandoned, it may be possible that you will receive communication from Sovos Keane on our behalf.
Texas residents have the right to designate a representative for the purpose of receiving the abandoned property notices required under Texas law. The designated representative will not have any rights or access to your mutual fund shares and will only receive notice if your property is deemed abandoned. To designate a representative, you may complete the Unclaimed Property Designation of Representative form which can be downloaded at https://comptroller.texas.gov/programs/claim-it/report/forms/index.php and return to Virtus Funds, P.O. Box 534470, Pittsburgh, PA 15253-4470.
