Funds

Below is a list of funds that Gibraltar Asset Management regularly recommends. They are all traded on a stock exchange with tight spreads and can be bought and sold throughout the trading day. There are no subscription or exit fees levied by the fund management companies. The only cost related to buying and selling (bar stamp duty on some investment trust purchases) is the dealing commission levied by ourselves, as per our rate card.

The funds themselves have investment management and custody fees, which are reflected in the Total Expense Ratio (TER). The TER is expressed as a percentage and represents the annual cost of holding the fund, which is deducted from the fund’s assets. As an example, the Vanguard All-World ETF has a TER of 0.25%. A £10,000 investment in this fund will cost the shareholder £25 annually. The KID (Key Information Document) contains further information on the fund, including the level of risk.

We have conducted research on many of the recommendations and these notes are included for your information.
