Existing Managed Fund Investments

existingmanagedfund1_400Every year in Australia, billions of dollars of entry fees & trailing commissions on managed fund investments are paid to financial intermediaries (financial advisors) or simply withheld by investment funds to increase their own profits.

Typically trailing commissions on managed funds range between 0.4% to 1.0% per annum. Therefore, for a managed fund investment of $100,000, up to $1,000 per annum could be charged to the investment. This amount would normally go to the financial advisor that reommended the fund. If there were no advisor involved in the transaction, the fund manager will hold onto these fees themselves - they do not pay them back to the investor. 

In addition, entry fees (sometimes known as contribution fees) on managed fund investments can be as high a 5%. This means that 5% is skimmed off the top of your investment money before it is even invested.

These percentage based entry fees and trailing commissions continue for as long as the investment exists.
