Data taken from competitor websites, correct at 01/07/2020 . This table doesn’t include government taxes and levies, only broker charges are included. *Based on the Investor price model from Interactive Investor.

When you invest in a fund, you will also pay charges to the fund manager, in addition to the charges you pay us. These charges pay for the fund manager’s expertise and cover costs of running each fund or trust. Brokers can negotiate special discounts for their customers and these charges may differ depending on the broker you use. Fund manager charges (PDF)

All of these costs & charges are taken from the value of your investment by the fund managers and are not paid to us. We haven't included these charges above, as these are unique to the funds or trusts you choose to invest in. You can find further information on these charges in our research centre, or in each individual fund or trust’s investor information.
