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.
Is it about time that Theo ate his words ?
This is a great fund, still receives little publicity.
The information in the above table is out of date. This fund now pays dividends twice per year, not once. It seems the managers have not bothered to inform Trustnet. Some one please wake them up from their slumber.
I spoke with Unicorn on 26 April 2011 and they indicated a dividend will be paid in May 2011 (amount not specified)No mention here or any other informed website.
Thinking of inv in this, is it a none starter
It seems from here that over performing 5yrs out of 9 makes you an alpha manager!!! It is time Trustnet stopped bending backwards to please investment companies and adopted some meaningful standards.
