What are the charges for investing?

There is a 0.5% Initial Charge* applied to all new investments, which is taken from your subscription amount.

We also apply a 0.4% annual service charge which is charged on a quarterly basis. The annual service charge is expressed as an annual percentage and is calculated monthly based on the value of your holdings on the last business day of the month. On the first business day of the new month shares will be sold to cover the charge. By Business Day we mean any day on which banks are open for business in Luxembourg and the UK i.e. any day other than Saturdays, Sundays or other public holidays

Please be aware that the sale of shares to cover the annual service charge is classified as a disposal for Capital Gains Tax purposes and may need to be declared to HMRC.

The annual service charge will be itemised on your quarterly statement, which provides a breakdown of all charges applied over the previous quarter along with any additional trades during the period

There is also an Annual Management Charge (AMC) factored into the share price as part of the Ongoing Charges. The AMC is 0.75% for the Triodos Sustainable Equity Fund and 0.95% for the Triodos Sustainable Pioneer Fund.

When comparing investment fund charges in the market, you might come across the term Ongoing Charges or Total Expense Ratio (TER). They are both a type of cost calculation which estimates the total charges that will be taken from a fund throughout the year, including the AMC mentioned above. Details of what makes up Triodos Investment Managements Ongoing Charges and their maximum levels can be found in the Key Investor Information Documents (KIIDs) and Prospectus. What has actually been charged can be found in the Annual and Semi-annual reports.
