Premier Miton Financials Capital Securities Fund

Details about the various charges that will apply to your investment, what these charges are for and the potential impact on your investment.


It is important you know what costs and charges you could pay when you invest in one of our funds, either through our open-ended investment companies (OEICs) or our unit trust. We explain these costs and charges in our OEIC and unit trust charges document. This document shows the charges associated with investing, including a breakdown of these charges, covering the following:

  • Ongoing charges figure: which include the recurring charges such as the annual management charge paid to us and other fund operational costs, including fees paid to the depositary, custodian and auditors.
  • Transaction costs: which are incurred when we buy and sell underlying investments within a fund. Transaction costs are variable, as they will depend on the level and types of transactions in each fund and are calculated according to the relevant regulations. Some of the transaction costs are explicit (leaving no room for confusion or doubt), such as the tax of 0.5% paid to the UK government on the transaction to buy shares in a company incorporated in the UK, or charges paid to firms for arranging the buying or selling of underlying investments, even if a transaction is done digitally. Some of the transaction costs are implicit, for example the cost impact to the fund of the difference in price for buying or selling an underlying investment between the time the order was initially placed and the time the order was executed. Some share prices will move every fraction of a second.


Risk and other important information

When you invest, your money is at risk because the value of investments, and any income from them, can go down as well as up and you could get back less than you invested. The past performance of an investment is not a guide to how it will perform in the future. Because there are many different types of investment risk and investors have different attitudes to risk, we are not able to categorise our investments as having a specific level of risk. We would therefore strongly recommend that if you do not have professional experience in matters relating to investments, you should speak with a financial adviser before making an investment decision.

Premier Miton Investors is not authorised to provide investment advice or tax advice. Before making an investment decision, it is also important that you read the key documentation for that investment which is available in the literature section of the website, by contacting a financial adviser or by getting in touch with us directly. See ‘Contact us’ for more information or if you are unsure. You can find more details about the specific risks and literature that are relevant to each type of investment on the individual fund, portfolio or investment trust website pages.
