How do I find out the annual charge on an investment trust?
Our comprehensive factsheets provide the latest information regarding investment trust charges.
Most investment trusts quote an 'ongoing charge' which is the estimated annual charge of holding the investment trust. This includes the annual fee paid to the fund manager for managing the portfolio, plus regular recurring costs such as directors' fees and audit fees. Some investment trusts also charge performance fees which are paid to the manager if they meet certain targets.
You can find the ‘ongoing charge including performance fee’ on the 'costs' tab of the investment trust factsheet on our website. Investors should refer to the latest annual report and accounts, available on our website, for full details of a trust's charges.
