Clean Funds

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has introduced regulations to make the charging structure of Funds clearer and more transparent. These new regulations mean that we need to change the Fund investments you hold with us and we want you to understand what these changes mean.

Understanding the risks


Remember that each fund is unique and hence exposed to different levels of risk. Some are relatively low risk, whilst others can be very risky and those will only be appropriate for more sophisticated investors.

The value of your investments, and the income derived from them, may go down as well as up. You may not get back all the money that you invest.

There may be a Fund Manager charge, which is a percentage of the value of your investment. This can differ depending on the fund. We charge a platform fee to cover the administrative cost of managing your funds.
