Insurance companies levy an annual management fee of 3% which is made up of administrative, buy-in costs and management costs. An additional cost of 1% is levied by the asset manager (The funds where your money is actually vested). This 4% is deducted from the investor’s interest, (ie 10% interest – 4 % charges = 6% Net Return).
As inflation sits at +/- 6.5% and is the benchmark to all investments, your investment would therefore have a negative growth pattern.
We at Ultra Brokers choose to take our clients direct to the funds / asset managers saving 3% of the 4% levied. Asset management is made up of companies like Allan Gray, Investec, Coronation and Foord to name a few. This reduces your overall cost component and makes the investor the primary re his investment. There are no upfront commissions. An on going fee of 1.14% inclusive of VAT for all services rendered is levied annually.
