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.

Retailer1974 Apr 10th, 2014 at 12:25 PM

I can tell you why its not working.... I am a retailer, in a location owned by Aviva. You guys have no idea of the most ridiculous ideas they are implementing.... (less is more !?! for one!) Removing traders from locations to improve "aesthetics" but in turn this cuts revenue to the centre (and hence investors) adds to unemployment (further aggravating the recession) and means LESS retailers in a centre hence making it a "Less attractive draw for people to come visit and spend", less people coming to visit and spend means other retailers will voluntarily leave and the cycle continues, less traders, less revenue, less draw for customers and on and on we go!

Trust me, I am a retailer, renting space from an AVIVA owned property, I have no affiliation with AVIVA and I am just as frustrated as you guys but from another perspective. People like me are what generate YOUR profits and yet we are being treated like ****. I would love do disclose more details here but we live in a society where speaking the truth can land you in legal trouble, what a contradiction, the legal system is supposed to get to the truth!! I am prepared to explain further on a personal level but can not do so on here, I don’t know how I can contact or be contacted though ?!?

Martin Lodge Jan 02nd, 2014 at 09:35 PM

Yeahhhh! Losses now down to just 21%. At this rate, in 18 months I might even be at par!

Martin Lodge Jul 26th, 2013 at 02:36 PM

Three and a half years on from my first comment in January 2010 and my losses are down to just 29%.....WOW. When is the Fund Manager going to turn things around?

Martin Lodge Nov 02nd, 2011 at 02:21 PM

Fund Manager's profile says he is 'a module leader on the IPF's Investment Education Programme'............needs to focus on what my management fees are paying for without these distractions!

Hong Li May 26th, 2011 at 04:01 PM

You should get yourself another adviser if can't give you an explanation! Fund is now back to offer pricing.

Hong Li Apr 19th, 2011 at 07:31 AM

Sorry, I meant outflows exceeding inflows - i.e. contracting fund size.

Hong Li Mar 28th, 2011 at 11:09 AM

The fund moved from an 'offer' to 'bid' basis as inflows exceeded outflows. You should speak to your Financial Adviser for a further explanation on what is happening with the fund.

tffn Mar 29th, 2011 at 06:49 PM

Thanks for your explanation. That is what Aviva have now told me in a letter which I have just received, dated 24th March. I am sorry, but I should have made it clear in my original post, I did approach my advisers. They were not able to tell me anything, as Aviva had not announced anything. As far as I know, this is still the position.

I don't see why pertinent information like this should be held back from investors and advisors, and require individuals to pursue the company to get at the information.

tffn Mar 23rd, 2011 at 07:41 PM

It just gets worse. On Friday 18th March, the fund dropped nearly 5%. That means that this fund has suddenly lost over £80M. There is absolutely nothing reported by Aviva. I have searched everywhere for information with no luck.

Even Aviva themselves will not give out any definite information. I have asked to speak to someone dealing with fund and been refused. They say they will respond in writing. I am waiting!

How are you supposed to make any decision (other than the obvious)? If they treat investors like this, it must surely be too dangerous to stay.

I feel angry that they can sit there and get away with this contempt.

Brian Kennedy Nov 08th, 2010 at 05:17 PM

35% down for me. What are they doing? B.Kennedy

silver Apr 27th, 2009 at 01:32 PM

I have lost most my savings in this badly run fund.

The Managers appear to be asleep
at the wheel, don't they?

Regards, Mike Spenser.

Martin Lodge Jan 29th, 2010 at 04:19 PM

Me too. 32% loss thus far - useless!
