  • 4In which daily national newspapers can I find the fund prices and income yield?

    These can be found in The Financial Times.  It should be noted that we only publish R class prices, and not S class.

    We decided to remove the prices of our funds from the Daily Telegraph newspaper from the 1st July 2014. This decision has been taken as we endeavour to contain and reduce costs on the funds and takes into account that prices are now available on various websites including our own and in other durable media and also by calling our administration office. We are also mindful of the current relevance of the prices we put in the paper – these will not necessarily reflect the price your client will get by dealing through you.

  • 5How is the fund manager remunerated?

    We now organise remuneration on the basis that we need to align our interests with those of our clients. They key to this is ensuring the business and the investment managers have a stake in the future success of the company. For the front office this means ensuring that they are delivering excellent performance over time, with clear accountability. As a result, the remuneration for front office is aligned with that of the client.  The majority of bonuses are calculated on 1-3 years performance, with an emphasis on 3 rolling years.  Two-thirds of bonuses are deferred and a minimum of 50% are be re-invested in the unit trusts. This ensures that the company does not take undue risk to with investors money and that there is a focus on the strength of our investment proposition.

    We would be more than happy to discuss the detail of the remuneration scheme with you, so that you can understand the drivers behind its construct.
