Please read the Simplified Prospectus/Key Investor Information Document in addition to the information above. Further details available in the HL guide to fund prices, savings and yields. Loyalty bonus is paid tax-free in an ISA or SIPP but may be subject to tax in a Fund & Share Account.

HRMC believes that from April 2013 rebates of annual charges (such as loyalty bonuses) paid on funds held outside ISAs or SIPPs should be paid net of basic rate tax. We believe this is incorrect and are challenging HMRC's interpretation. However, in line with best client accounting practice and to save clients facing an unexpected bill in the future, we are currently paying loyalty bonuses within the Vantage Fund & Share Account net of an amount equivalent to the basic rate tax. If we are successful in our challenge we will return this money to clients. If we are unsuccessful we will use the money to pay over any amounts due to HMRC. Loyalty bonuses in the Vantage Fund & Share Accounts held by overseas investors, companies and charities will be paid without any deductions, as will loyalty bonuses in the Vantage ISA and Vantage SIPP which are exempt from tax.

Wealth 150 fund

The Wealth 150 is a list of what we believe to be the best funds in each sector. For a fund to be selected for the Wealth 150 it must pass a rigorous selection process, and we continually monitor the list to ensure it only contains the best funds.

Wealth 150+ fund

The Wealth 150 is a list of what we believe to be the best funds in each sector. For a fund to be selected for the Wealth 150 it must pass a rigorous selection process, and we continually monitor the list to ensure it only contains the best funds.

As investment returns depend on two factors - performance and charges - we have identified from the Wealth 150, the funds we believe offer the very best combination of outstanding performance potential and the best prices. These are the Wealth150+ funds. In many cases these super-low charges are only available through the Vantage Service - a unique benefit to Hargreaves Lansdown clients.

Core Tracker fund

The Core Trackers list represents what we believe are the very best trackers in each of the main sectors. We analysed each fund's management, process and performance to find the best combination of quality and cost. We want to ensure that the fund has not only tracked its index closely in the past, but that it has the best potential to track well in the future. In many cases these super-low charges are only available through the Vantage Service - a unique benefit to Hargreaves Lansdown clients.
