Equity funds

An equity fund is a diversified investment in the equity market. A long-term investment, equity funds are suitable for you if you are seeking a high return that is better than the return of fixed income markets and are willing to accept the return fluctuations of the equity market.

Equity funds invest mainly in equities and are most suitable as a long-term investment in place of or alongside direct investments in equities. The funds spread their assets over several investments, which minimises risks. You do not need to monitor the different investments, as this is done on your behalf by investment professionals who are constantly monitoring the performance of the markets and funds.

  • You can choose from different types of funds investing in different markets.
  • Managing your investment is easy since you do not have to personally follow the markets.
  • You can buy and sell fund units at any time.

Equity funds differ from each other in terms of risk level, so please read each fund's investment policy carefully. The more diversely a fund invests its assets in different sectors and companies operating in different countries, the less value fluctuation the fund is expected to experience.

A subscription fee is charged on a subscription (purchase) for fund units and a redemption fee on a redemption (sale) of fund units. You can subscribe for fund units for a reduced fee via Netbank.

Each fund pays the fund management company a management fee, which covers such fund management costs as value calculation, accounting and reporting.

The amount of the management fee is given as an annual fee. The management fee is deducted in the calculation of the daily net asset value per fund unit, and is thus not charged separately. The fee includes a custody fee for fund units.

You can view the fees for each fund in the Funds Now service.
