Fund-Level Fee (or Total Expense Ratio): paid to the Fund Managers. This is already accounted for in the NAV of the Fund. Endowus clients will get Cashback on the trailer fee component of the fund-level fee back where this is charged. Please refer to https://endowus.com/cash-smart for the latest fund-level fee of each Cash Smart portfolio.
0.05% Endowus Fee (per anum): An access fee paid to Endowus, which includes portfolio creation and unlimited transactions on the Endowus platform.
The Endowus Fee is charged on a quarterly basis. For every calendar quarter (i.e. Jan - March), we will calculate the daily average investment value of your Cash Smart investment and charge 0.0125% as fees (which adds up to 0.05% in a year). For example, if your Cash Smart portfolio has an average value of S$10,000 in a year, Endowus will transparently make S$5 per year from you (the price of a cappuccino).
Endowus has no sales fees, and we give 100% Cashback on trailer fees. Unlike other platforms, we do not collect trailer fees from fund managers. We are only paid by you, the clients we serve.
