The following table provides an illustration of the ex-ante fund costs and charges for a selection of the pooled vehicles managed by Newton. We also publish ex-post fund costs and charges in a separate table.

The total costs and charges column in the table combines both the ongoing charges figure for the fund and any transaction-based costs associated with the day-to-day management of the funds.

For each fund we highlight one share class for information purposes. Full costs and charges for each share class, the prospectus and other important information for the pooled fund range, can be found on the BNY Mellon website.

Notes

Ex-ante:

These costs relate to an estimate of the expected costs and charges that will be incurred by the fund over the next 12 months.

Ex-post:

These costs relate to the actual costs and charges incurred by the fund over the previous 12-month period.

OCF (ongoing charges figure):

The OCF covers the annual operating expenses of the fund in terms of both investment management services and administration. It is calculated based on the expenses over the previous 12-month period. It incorporates the AMC, registrar fees, custody fees and any other distribution costs. The OCF does not include initial entry charges, exit charges or any dilution adjustments.
AMC (annual management charge): This is the annual investment fee that is paid to provide active investment management services to the fund.
Other costs and charges: This covers the pooled fund administration and operating costs. It incorporates, for example, the registrar fees, custody fees, audit fees, regulatory fees and any stock-lending fees.

Transaction-based costs:

The transaction-based costs do not form part of the OCF. These fees relate to annual expenses that result from day-to-day transactions relating to underlying investments within the fund, comprising both explicit and implicit transaction costs as detailed below.
Explicit costs: these relate to direct transaction-based costs, such as broker commissions and taxes incurred as a result of trading in the underlying investments.
Implicit costs: these relate to indirect transaction costs, such as security spreads or execution and arrival price differences (implementation shortfall) as a result of trading in the underlying investments.

Total costs and charges:

The total costs and charges figure for the fund, which combines both the OCF and the transaction-based costs.
