What are the ongoing charges?
The Ongoing Charges Figure (OCF) shows how much it will cost to invest in the fund annually. This figure encompasses all aspects of operating a fund during the course of its financial year.

- It is shown on the factsheet for each fund.
- Depositary/Trustee oversight
- Safe-keeping of the Fund's assets

* Transaction cost will be displayed once the numbers are positive
Transaction charges are costs incurred by the Fund when trading underlying investments and are taken from the Fund’s capital, meaning they are included in the calculated Net Asset Value (NAV). All transaction costs are included in the final OCF figure (above). This figure is disclosed to all Platforms, available upon request and can be found in our EMT (European MiFID Template), which is available from the Key Documents page. The comprising elements are as follows:
Explicit transaction costs
- Broker Commission: paid to buy and sell securities
- Taxes and Levies: such as stamp duty and exchange fees
Implicit transaction costs
- Arrival Price: the difference between the market mid price at the time of the order being placed with the broker and the price at which the trade is executed
