Clean Share Class Funds

Clean share class funds do not pay commission. If you invest in or hold a clean share class fund directly with the fund manager through us, we will charge you an ongoing service fee of 0.4% of the value of your investment. We collect this fee by direct debit from your nominated bank account every six months. We do not charge an initial fee for arranging clean share class investments.

Other Investments

Following the Retail Distribution Review by our Regulator, all financial advisers must now charge fees in lieu of taking commission. As an execution-only provider, we are still able to reinvest and receive balance commissions on some products but for those that do not pay commission, we will charge the following one-off fees:-

  • With Profits Bonds 1.00% (equivalent to £100 on an investment of £10,000)
  • Investment Bonds 1.00% (equivalent to £100 on an investment of £10,000)
  • VCTs 1.00% (equivalent to £100 on an investment of £10,000)

Pensions and SIPPS - Please contact us as charges may vary.

Past performance of an investment is not necessarily a guide to its performance in the future. The value of investments or income from them may go down as well as up. You may not necessarily get back the amount you invested.
