The Ongoing Charges Figure (OCF) shows the drag on performance caused by operational expenses associated with a fund.

Expenses which are represented by this figure include payments to the manager, the trustee the custodian and their representatives. The figure also includes registration, regulatory, audit and legal fees, and the costs of distribution.

Performance fees, transaction costs, interest on borrowing, costs associated with derivatives, entry and exit fees and soft commissions are not included in the OCF calculation, and should be factored in separately by the investor.

The OCF is calculated by taking the sum of these expenses incurred in the last 12 months and dividing this by the average net assets of that class for the last 12 months.

Total Expense Ratio (TER) is a formula designed to show the ongoing costs to the investor associated with a fund, including some charges which are not factored into the annual management fee. In addition the fund’s annual fee, charges such as trading fees, audit and legal fees, and operational expenses are included in the TER, which is worked out by dividing the total cost of the fund by its total assets to arrive at a percentage.

Unlike the Ongoing Charges Figure, the TER takes into account performance fees. It does not include transaction costs paid to the custodian.

How on Earth is this guy managing to do so poorly? Surely if you blindfolded a chimpanzee and asked him to randomly draw shares out of a hat, the performance would pick up at some stage?

arenicola Jul 25th, 2014 at 09:51 AM

I may as well have sent my investment to the Nigerian e-mailer who wanted my bank details!

IMC1984 Jul 03rd, 2014 at 10:04 AM

Another solid day yesterday for this fantastic fund. I wonder if this might be an opportunity to top up into Youtu...I mean, Blinkx after it got totalled for another 50% or more yesterday.

trying hard Jun 01st, 2014 at 04:16 PM

Markets have taken off. Where are your investments and our units Mr Manek - BOTTOM of the ALL the tables. Shame on you.

IMC1984 Apr 09th, 2014 at 04:41 PM

How do you improve your figures against your peers?

Simple - Jump ship from the UK All Companies sector to Specialist! All of a sudden, the figures look moderate!

IMC1984 Feb 04th, 2014 at 10:57 AM

Is there really still £20m left in this fund?

I must say, that some of the shares actually appear to have done quite well (Blinkx, Eros, etc), so I ask myself the question, how is the price continuing to suffer?

I would encourage anyone still invested to look closely at the annual turnover of stock within the fund and then reach the sensible conclusion. How this fund retains regulation is beyond me.

mrinvest Jan 25th, 2014 at 03:23 PM

Time to hang up your hat.

arenicola Nov 27th, 2013 at 03:11 PM

Mr Manek is bottom of every league table! Perhaps he could tell us via this forum what his plan to do better for his investors is or is he just living off the fund management fees?

mark shilston Oct 30th, 2013 at 09:54 AM

What an absolute dog of a fund I hung on far too long but am so glad I finally saw sense and got out.Yet Mr Manek is still making good money from running a fund that my cat could beat.

jd Sep 22nd, 2013 at 02:30 PM

how can I check what my investment is doing

arenicola Sep 30th, 2013 at 10:55 AM

Check the share price and multiply it by the number of shares you have!

IMC1984 Feb 24th, 2014 at 10:25 AM

It's doing badly. Trust me

trying hard Sep 07th, 2013 at 05:13 PM

Mr Manek how can you face your investors with a performance that be carried out by a 5 year old with a better outcome

arenicola May 31st, 2013 at 05:49 PM

Should be called Manek Shrink Fund. Growth is a misnomer. My investment of £14K is now worth £4K.

PAT May 30th, 2013 at 03:24 PM

I invested in 2000 and have seen my savings depleted away. Blinkx the top holding has just delivered me 150% in the last 5 years so Mr Manek needs to realise we are not fools!
