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.

What are management fees?

The annual management fee (base fee) is currently 0.5% (VAT exempt). The Performance fee is dependent on the return of the Fund relative to its benchmark, MSCI All Country World Net Total Return Index. A performance fee, being 15% of the difference between performance returns and the hurdle, is chargeable only when the performance returns exceed the relevant hurdle. The performance fee and is uncapped. A high watermark principle is also applicable. It means that should the Fund under-perform it would first be required to recover the under-performance before any further performance fees are payable.

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.
