ADVICE COSTS (EXCLUDING VAT)

Coronation does not provide financial advice and therefore does not charge advice fees. However, investments are often placed on your behalf by a financial adviser, in which case fees are negotiated directly between you and your adviser, within the following ranges:  Initial 0.00% - 3.00%, Ongoing 0.00% - 1.00% when the initial fee is less than 1.50%, 0.00% - 0.50% when the initial fee is more than 1.50%. Sharing of annual management fees: A portion of Coronation’s annual management fee may be paid to administration platforms as a subsidy for administrative and advice costs incurred when investing through these channels. Where commission and incentives are paid, these are included in the overall costs.
