Would you be concerned if a manager of a fund you owned took charge of another portfolio as well?
To invest, primarily in the shares of, companies throughout the world engaged in the production and marketing of commodities. The Fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term.
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.
All prices in Pence Sterling (GBX) unless otherwise specified. Price total return performance figures are calculated on a bid price to bid price basis (mid to mid for OEICs) with net income (dividends) reinvested. Performance figures are shown in Sterling unless otherwise specified.
What is happening to this fund. It appears to be in free-full which is the opposite to world-wide markets. Can anyone suggest a reason why?
There is simply a global slow down in demand for raw materials and as a consequence Commodities are simply out of favour at the moment.
What is the view of the recent news of Ian Henderson and Clive Lloyd joining this fund? My initial thoughts were positive, but is it a sign of panic?
This Fund class A Acc share price AM Fri 27 Jan. 2012 urgently needed to work out loss/gain on switch to ISA on PM same day repurchase at price 942.8p Plz can you help? JPM Natural Resources A Acc. T/y email@example.com
Why are JPM investing 10% in Providence Services Corp? They are not a Natural Resources company!
I think in the table headed "detailed fund information" above, you should show the TER and not the AMC which is misleading and useless.
Well personally i've nearly trebled my monies and need to spend some on my house so have sold up 80% of my JPM holdings. Besides i've got burned being greedy before. I have a separate holding in the Fidelity China focus fund and that money I plan to leave where it is because, as you say, I expect China to soar in the coming years.
I would urge patience. This is a commodity super cycle despite what all the pundits, that have mis- understood what is happening in the far- east, say. People should compare China and the rest of the far –east with what happened in the UK from 1780 to 1880. This is a modern Industrial revolution which is happening in 30 years not 100. China will be the most powerful economy in the world by 2040. This super cycle will probably end around 2017 ie so a comfortable time to exit for the low risk takers will be around 2014/15. natural resources should be around £2400 by then
Over £9 a unit now. Time to Sell!!
I Bought in at £3.24 a unit and plan to get out at around £9 a unit. Never bought into some of the negativity being spouted a few months ago (seems to be a British pastime). Also put a substantial amount in China funds. Probably the best i returns i have ever seen, or maybe ever will see
Gold will always shine in troubled times and we are certainly in that now. Previous high in today's money was about 2000 per oz, so gold has the potential to double from here, taking other Natural resources higher too. Buy this fund and sit with a trailing stop loss
I think your perspective may change when the recession eases and the large money flows from quantative easing make their way into the money supply. This could provide a significant inflationary boost which will reflect in the price of gold and silver. In addition the current fiscal difficulties have resulted in many mining companies reducing investment even further. It takes 10 years for a mine to be developed and come on stream where would all the silver and gold come from if we see a significant increase in demand. I think you will see this price double in 2 years
Gold has had its day. You can buy the UK's largest bank for a quid, I don't see how anyone can still believe there is money to be made in safe havens like this. Not saying those who've got shouldn't keep, but inflows into funds like this don't match their prospects in my opinion.
