Frequently Asked Questions

What are the costs of fund investing?

There are broadly three types of charges commonly associated with buying and holding index funds: Management costs (also called OCR (Ongoing Charges Rate) or TER (Total Expense Ratio), Transaction Costs, and Bid-Offer Spread.

Management costs ('TER' or 'OCR') are the most commonly found on fund information sheets, and are the upfront costs charged by the fund provider to run and manage the fund (e.g. audit, depository, legal, registration and regulatory expenses) each year as a percentage of assets invested.

Transaction costs are the charges the fund incurs when buying/selling underlying securities to maintain its target fund size and to match any changes in the index. These change each reporting period depending on a number of factors, including market conditions and fund structure - you can find the historic values for these from your broker or from a fund manager directly.

A bid-offer spread is where the price for buying and selling the security is different (and does not apply to all index funds - some traditional funds buy and sell at the same price instead recovering fees from other costs), when buying funds with a bid-offer spread, a cost is effectively incurred at point of purchase and point of sale.

This comparison page only includes ongoing management costs, for bid-offer spreads and historic transaction costs please consult your share dealing provider.
