Fund charges and transaction costs
There are a number of ways in which you may pay to invest in Architas funds; these fall into two categories:
- Charges for the services provided by the manager and other organisations involved in the running and promotion of the fund.
- Transaction costs inherent in dealing in investments. In general, you would have to pay these costs even if you invested directly in the assets that the funds hold, although an individual investor is likely to have to pay proportionately more than a collective fund.
Source: Financial Express. The value of your client's investment, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. Your client may get back less than they originally invested. Furthermore, the value can fall as well as rise purely on account of exchange rate fluctuations. The Funds are allowed to invest over 35% of its assets in securities issued by a single local, national or supranational government (supranational government means an international union of different member states that share decision making, for example the European Union). Each of these funds can invest entirely in units of collective investment schemes. For further information on any of the Architas funds, please refer to the Key Investor Information document or prospectus (which is available upon request).
