A switch usually takes 4 to 7 working days, depending on the funds you're switching between. To carry out a switch we need to sell one fund first and then buy into the other funds on your behalf. Each part of the process can take a few days. There will be a period where you aren't invested, with the chance that prices fluctuate.
For Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), the switch is quicker and can happen within 1 day.
