What are the Access Fees for Fund Smart?

Fund Smart is the most competitive way to access funds because we offer institutional share class of funds, which is the lowest fee share class with no trailer fees embedded. If the institutional share class funds are not available, we offer the retail share classes and rebate all trailer fees received by the fund manager to our clients. We charge an all-in Access Fee, and there are no additional upfront sales charges or brokerage/transaction/custodian fees.

The institutional share classes of funds have traditionally only been available to institutional investors like insurance or pension funds, or ultra-high net worth investors, but are available to everyone via Endowus.

All short-term cash management portfolios will have an Access Fee of 0.05% p.a, regardless of the number of funds in or investment value of the goal.

Note that Fund-Level Fees (fund total expense ratio) are charged by the fund manager out of the underlying fund Net Asset Value (NAV).

What is the cost of Endowus versus popular fund platforms?

It is more transparent, and in most cases much lower cost, to invest and grow your wealth with Endowus than it would be to replicate your portfolio and similar services at a private bank, online "low cost, no fee" platform, or retail bank..

Endowus rebates 100% of trailer fees, and gives access to the institutional share class of funds, which typically are half the cost of a retail share class of the same fund. 

For example, when you buy the PIMCO GIS Income Fund SGD-Hedged at a private bank or broker, you may be sold the retail share class, which has a total expense ratio of 1.45%, plus upfront sales charges  (typically 1-5%), custodian fees (typically 0.20% to 0.50% per year) and advisory/wrap fees. This means that you may have a total cost of ownership in the first year of over 3%.

With Endowus, we access the institutional share class of the same fund, which has a total expense ratio of 0.55%, no sales fees, no transaction fees, and the Endowus Access Fee of 0.40% per annum. This means you have a total cost of ownership of 0.95% per annum.
