    Price (Acc)

    These are the shares in the fund that don’t pay out an income to clients. Any dividends – the money a company can pay out to its investors – are reinvested into companies in the fund. Despite no income, the shares should be worth more over time. Good incentive, eh?

    Initial charge

    Some funds charge you when you first invest, which is aptly known as the initial charge. They’re usually between 3-5% but at Bestinvest, we usually don’t charge you a penny!

  • 0.75%
    Annual management charge

    This is how much the fund management company charges to run the fund. It’s like paying a babysitter, dog sitter or house sitter (that makes well-informed, heavily researched changes to improve your baby/dog/house when needed).

    Ongoing charges

    This stands for Ongoing Charges Figure. It’s the cost of running a fund and includes admin fees, manager fees, administration costs, etc.

    Yield

    How much the fund is currently paying out in income to investors. It’s NOT to be confused with the overall growth of a fund – a very different thing indeed. It’s also NOT a guarantee of future pay-outs, just a snapshot. This is more what it’s not than what it is…

Investment process

The Socially Responsible Investment team believe that those companies which are most likely to grow consistently over the next few decades are those that are promoting or benefiting from sustainable economic development. Thus the team actively seek out companies which have or are taking steps to providing solutions to environmental and social problems. Companies that qualify on this basis, are then assessed as potential investments, which is guided by the house macroeconomic view, and the companies considerable research base. There are however, a number of areas which are strictly out of bounds. These include: - Manufacture of cigarettes and other tobacco products. - Ownership, management or construction of nuclear power stations. - Manufacture or marketing of arnaments, including weapons, weapon platforms and munitions. - Any company whose principal business involves gambling. - Any company deriving a significant proportion of their turnover from the manufacture and sale of alcohol.

About the MRI

Our unique indicator: the Bestinvest Manager Record Index (MRI) measures the likelihood that the fund manager is adding value through their decisions. It is based on their performance record over the course of their career, adjusted for the amount of risk taken. MRI is an important contributor to our fund rating system but it is also vital to take account of qualitative factors. It is also very important to select funds to form a cohesive portfolio with an appropriate overall risk level.
