What is the difference between The Share Centre charges and investment management charges?
Our charges are the charges for operating your account with us, such as the administration fee (where applicable), dealing commission, stamp duty etc, and are deducted from your account where applicable. Please see your tariff sheet for more details.
Investment management charges are the charges for managing the investment, such as the Annual Management Charge (AMC), and are charged by the investment manager rather than The Share Centre. Unlike our charges, these charges will not show on your account, but are incorporated in the investment(s) themselves and reflected in the daily price of that investment. The charges shown are based on the latest available data provided to us by investment managers.
Why are the investment management charges different between the original statement I received and the enhanced statement?
Investment management charges are based on data we receive from Investment Managers via Financial Express. This data is received on a daily basis and can change at any time. We use the latest available data when calculating the investment management charges, so this data may have changed between the time the original statement was produced and when the enhanced statement was created.
What is a soft close of a fund?
A soft closure can occur for a variety of reasons, but the most common is due to the size of the fund reaching the optimum point for the manager. By soft closing a fund, new investors are often prohibited from investing in it, whilst for existing investors an initial charge can be imposed to help reduce the flow of investments.
Why is my AMC/OCF so high?
The Annual Management Charge (AMC) of a fund is specified by the fund manager and not The Share Centre. This charge covers the cost of manging the fund or investment. The Annual Management Charge and the Ongoing Charge are detailed on the relevant fund page and also in the Key Investor Information Document or Key Information Document available on our website.
Why have I not seen the AMC/OCF on my statement before?
The AMC & OCF have not been shown on your statement previously as this is detailed within the Key Investor Information Document or Key Information Document. This document is available on our website.
How is the charge on the statement reflected in my fund value (i.e. how is the AMC/OCF charged)?
The Annual Management Charge/Ongoing Charge figure is deducted from the investment and is reflected in the price of each unit of the fund.
