Total Expense Ratio

The combination of administration charge, investment charge and additional fund expenses is referred to as the Total Expense Ratio, or TER.

Transaction costs

The costs and charges incurred as a result of the buying, selling, lending or borrowing of investments.

These costs can vary over time, depending on the level of activity the manager undertakes. For example, our passive managers have lower charges because they essentially do less work to manage the fund. Actively managed funds charge more because they do more work. You’ll find more information in our value for money assessment in the Chair's statement.
