Cromwell Funds Management Limited (CFM) is the Responsible Entity of the Cromwell Phoenix Opportunities Fund (the Fund).
Annual Fees and Costs
In section 6 of the Fund’s product disclosure statement dated 29 September 2017 (PDS), CFM provides a breakdown of management costs and an example of the annual fees and costs associated with an investment in the Fund.
CFM wishes to update this disclosure based on amounts for the financial year ended 30 June 2020:
6. Fees and costs
|TYPE OF FEE OR COST Breakdown Of Management Costs||Amount|
|Base management fee||Nil|
|Annual administration costs||0.15%|
|Total management costs||3.97%|
1.Actual performance fee paid over the 12 months to 30 June 2020 expressed as a percentage of the Fund’s average net assets for the same period. This is not a forecast. At the date of this note, our reasonable estimate of the performance fee we expect to charge on a typical basis is 1.8% p.a. It is based on estimated performance of 8.9% p.a., using the annualised 30-year performance of the All Ordinaries Accumulation Index. The All Ordinaries Accumulation Index is considered a reasonable proxy, given its 30-year history takes into account years of low (and negative) performance.
2. Of the Fund’s net asset value. This amount will depend on the Fund’s investment activity.
|Table 1 Example of annual fees and costs for the Fund. |
This table gives an example of how the fees and costs of the Fund can affect your investment over a one year period. You should use this table to compare this Fund with other managed investment products.
|EXAMPLE:||BALANCE OF $50,000 WITH A CONTRIBUTION OF $5,000 DURING THE YEAR|
|Contribution Fee||0%||For every additional $5,000 you put in, you will be charged $0.|
|PLUS Management Costs||3.97%||And, for every $50,000 you have in the Fund you will be charged $1,985 each year.|
|Equals Cost of Fund||If you had an investment of $50,000 at the beginning of the year and you put an additional $5,000 in during that year then for that year, you would be charged fees of: $1,985 - $2,184.|
What it costs you will depend on the fees you negotiate with your financial adviser.
Section 6 of the PDS should be read accordingly.
Transactional and operational costs
As disclosed in the Fund’s Additional Information Document dated 29 September 2017 (AID), transactional and operational costs are disclosed based on amounts paid in the previous financial year and in any year will differ depending on the investment activity of the Fund.
CFM wishes to disclose that the total transactional and operational costs of the Fund for the financial year ended 30 June 2020 were 0.17% of the net assets of the Fund (e.g., $85 for every $50,000 of net assets).
If the buy/sell spread applied is not sufficient to cover the Fund’s total transactional and operational costs, the balance of the costs will be paid out of the Fund’s assets. If the buy/sell spread applied exceeds the Fund’s transactional and operational costs, the balance of the buy/sell spread will be retained by the Fund. The deficit of transactional and operational costs not covered by the Fund’s buy/sell spread for the financial year ending 30 June 2020 was 0.14% of the net asset value of the Fund (e.g., $70 for every $50,000 of net assets).
The relevant part of the AID should be read accordingly.
