Fees & costs

Management costs % p.a.Net transactional and operational costs % p.a*Buy/Sell spread % / 0.23

* Transactional and operational costs vary year to year and represent the estimated costs from the fund’s investing activities. These are reflected in the unit price an impact the performance of the fund. These costs include brokerage, settlement costs, clearing costs, stamp duty and other taxes on an investment transaction. It also includes the difference between the price paid for purchasing securities and the price that would be payable if selling securities (i.e. bid/ask spread). These costs are net of the buy-sell spread recovery which is the amount charged to investors for applications and withdrawals. The transactional and operational costs are generally calculated each year based on the estimated costs incurred during the prior financial year ended 30 June, expressed as a percentage of the average fund net asset value, however the transactional and operational costs will also be recalculated when there is a significant change in net transactional and operational costs.
