Charges explained

The total cost of investing via Smarterly is typically around 1.00% per annum of the value of your investment.

That's made up of two parts: platform charges of 0.79%, plus fund manager charges. Our comparison tables help you choose good value investments, so fund manager charges are usually between 0.20% and 0.30%.

There are no other charges. That means:

  • No switching or trading charges
  • No fixed monthly account charges
  • No minimum charge
  • No entry or exit charges
  • No hidden fund management charges
  • No performance fees

Fund managers also incur their own costs of trading which are passed on to investors.
