How does Endowus make money? How is the Access Fee charged?

For general investing, Endowus charges an Access Fee based on assets under advice (AUA), which includes portfolio advice & creation, unlimited transactions, all at your convenience on the Endowus platform.

Endowus has no sales fees, and 100% trailer fee rebates. Unlike other platforms, we do not collect kickbacks from fund managers. We are only paid by you, the client we serve.

Access Fee per annum based on assets under advice (AUA):
0.60%   S$200,000 and below
0.50%   S$200,001 to S$1,000,000
0.35%   S$1,000,001 to S$5,000,000
0.25%   S$5,000,001 and above

For Cash Smart (high yield cash management solutions), the Endowus Access Fee is 0.05% per year for any amount.

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


How the Access Fee is charged

Paying the Access Fee is seamless and transparent. We charge our Access Fee on a quarterly basis based on your daily average total assets under advice for that quarter. If you have any cash in your trust balance that is not in an investment portfolio, we will use your remaining cash balance to pay for the Access Fee. Otherwise, we will redeem part of your investment portfolio, equivalent to your fees due for the quarter.

What is the cost of Endowus versus popular fund platforms?

It is much lower cost to buy, maintain, and grow your money with Endowus  than it would be to replicate them on a popular “low cost, no fee” fund platform. Endowus also rebates 100% of trailer fees, and gives access to the institutional share class of funds, which typically are half the cost of a retail fund share class.

For example, when you buy the PIMCO Income Fund at a private bank or broker, you may be sold the retail share class, which has a total expense ratio of 1.45%, plus any sales fees (typically 1-5%), plus any 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 year. This means you have a total cost of ownership of 0.95%.
