Keeping your fund costs low

ARQ’s cost analytics helps you answer two simple questions:

  • What are the annual fees I will pay to hold all my funds
  • Are there more cost-effective fund options that still meet my investment objectives

The impact of fund fees – A case study on how ARQ can benefit you

This case study demonstrates the impact of just a small reduction in hidden costs on long-term investment growth.It’s one of the few things you can control!

”Modelling a £100,000 investment growing at an average of 4.5% a year, Vanguard Asset Management estimated:

The sum will grow to £210,000 over 30 years if the investor’s costs were 2%. If the costs were capped at 0.5%, the final sum is £324,000.”
