  • Indirect costs

    An indirect cost ratio is your part of the indirect costs incurred by the investment managers to manage your investment. This includes everything from brokerage costs (the cost of trading shares) to stamp duty paid on the purchase of a property.

    Whilst these costs are not paid out of the Fund as a fee payment to the investment manager, the investment returns reflect all costs incurred.
