With effect from 1 October 2010, to reflect the revised investment objective of the Company, the Manager received a fixed monthly fee of £70,000 per month for six months, following which the monthly fee reduced to £50,000 for the following eighteen months. All fees are quoted net of VAT and are payable quarterly in arrears.
On 1 October 2011, or earlier if deemed appropriate, the fixed monthly fee shall be reviewed taking into account the Manager’s workload and the status of the realisation of the portfolio at that time.
The manager is entitled to a performance fee of 10% of any amounts available to be returned to Shareholders over the cash hurdle. The cash hurdle is an amount which must be returned to shareholders before a performance fee can be paid.
Morningstar calculates all expenses for the financial year, consisting of management fees, performance fees, directors' fees, administration fees, custody fees, audit fees, marketing fees, loan interest, tax, restructuring costs and all other expenses given in the Statement of Total Return and notes in the Report and Financial Statements. They subtract performance fee, restructuring costs, transaction costs, compensation scheme expenses and trail commission then calculate the average daily net assets on a cum fair basis, then divide the total expenses by the average daily net assets and multiply the resulting figure by 100 to arrive at this ratio.
Please note, not all companies have yet adopted ‘ongoing charges’ as the methodology in their Annual Report and Financial Statements. This may mean there are differences between the charges shown on our factsheets and website and the TER shown in the Annual Report.
