Please remember, past performance is not a guide to future returns. All investments can go down as well as up in value, so you could get back less than you invest. Yields are variable and not guaranteed. Tax rules can change and the value of any tax shelter depends on individual circumstances. Hargreaves Lansdown Multi-Manager funds are managed by our sister company Hargreaves Lansdown Fund Managers.

Frequently asked questions

  • The type of unit you hold determines how any income generated from the fund's underlying investments is treated.

    With income units, income is paid out to fund holders as cash. This could provide the investor with an income stream or the cash could be reinvested to buy additional units.

    With accumulation units income is retained within the fund and reinvested, increasing the price of the units. Generally, for investors who wish to reinvest income, accumulation units offer a more convenient and cost-effective way of doing so.


  • In the past most investors who held funds, such as unit trusts and OEICs, paid a single ongoing charge to the manager of their chosen funds. This charge often included an element of commission which the fund manager shared with brokers, such as Hargreaves Lansdown, to help pay for their service. We call these funds 'inclusive' funds.

    Recent FCA rule changes mean that when investors purchase a fund any commission must be rebated to the investor. As a result of the FCA's new rules, fund management groups have launched new versions of their funds with lower ongoing charges, which do not include any commission. We call these funds 'unbundled' funds.


  • You can buy funds online, over the telephone or by post. Please ensure you have read the fund's Key Investor Information Document (KIID) or Key Features first which is available from the individual fund factsheets on the website.

    Online: If you're registered for online access, simply log in and select the relevant account, such as Vantage ISA or SIPP and click the ‘Deal Now’ button. Search for your chosen fund investment and continue to the confirmation page.

    If you're not already registered but have a Master Password, you can register for online access by selecting the ‘Register’ tab at the top right of the screen.

    Telephone: Provided you have a Master Password, you can call our stockbrokers on 0117 980 9800 Monday - Friday: 8am - 9pm.

    Post: Download a dealing form from our Useful forms section and return it to: Hargreaves Lansdown, One College Square South, Anchor Road, Bristol, BS1 5HL.

    Hargreaves Lansdown do not charge a dealing commission to buy or sell funds.


  • A fund is an investment that pools together the money from many individuals. Fund managers then use it to invest in a wide range of shares and/or bonds. Each investor is issued units, which represent a portion of the holdings of the fund.


  • Funds are popular with investors because they offer access to a ready-made investment portfolio run by an expert in their field. You can normally invest from £100 as a lump sum or £25 per month, and get instant access to a diversified portfolio for a much lower cost than purchasing the individual investments yourself.
