An unusual but perhaps welcome feature is a sliding fee scale. The more you invest, the lower the charge.

  • Less than £500,000: 4% initial charge and 2% ongoing charge
  • £500,000–£1,000,000: 3.5% initial charge and 1.75% ongoing charge
  • £1 million or more: 3% initial charge and 1.5% ongoing charge
