What are adviser fees?

Adviser fees are paid to Beanstalk. We do not charge an upfront fee and our annual fee is very low at just 0.50% (+ VAT where applicable).

What are administration fees?

Annual administration fees are charged by Allan Gray Investment Services Proprietary Limited or Investec Management Services (Pty) Ltd for ongoing administation. The fee applicable to your investment depends on the unit trusts you have selected and the value of your investment. A negative annual administration fee means you will pay no annual administration fee and will receive additional units into your account.

What are management fees?

The annual management fee rate is dependent on the return of the Fund relative to its benchmark, the market value-weighted average return of funds in the South African - Multi Asset - High Equity category (excluding Allan Gray funds), over a rolling two-year period. The fee hurdle (above which a fee greater than the minimum fee of 0.57% (incl. VAT) is charged) is performance equal to the benchmark minus 5%. For performance equal to the benchmark a fee of 1.14% (incl. VAT) per annum is payable. The managers sharing rate is 10% of the under and outperformance of the benchmark over a rolling two-year period and a maximum fee of 1.71% (incl. VAT) applies. The annual management fee is calculated on the daily value of the Fund excluding any assets invested in the Orbis Funds. Assets invested in the Orbis Funds incur a management fee. These along with other expenses are included in the Total Expense Ratio.

Management fees are expenses included in the price of your selected unit trust(s). These expenses are not charged as separate fees, but are built into the unit price of the unit trusts you select. The fees shown include VAT where applicable. Values are calculated using more decimal places than are displayed.
