Product or Service Charge
We have one tiered charging structure that is based on the value of all products held on the investment platform, and the percentage charge reduces as their assets grow. It is known as the Service Charge on the ISA and Collective Investment Account, and the Product Charge for the Collective Investment Bond and Collective Retirement Account.
Clients can benefit from client-linking, meaning we base the percentage charge they pay on the total value of Old Mutual Wealth investments* held by themselves and their spouse/civil partner.
Fund or Portfolio Cost
Our commitment to competitive pricing is clear. Through our size and scale we have negotiated with fund managers to provide access to the best value share classes in the market on 80% of the funds we offer*, helping drive down investment cost for your clients. In comparison, our closest competitor only offers access to the best value share classes in 50%* of cases.

Wrapper or Transaction Fees
Unlike some other providers, Old Mutual Wealth does not make any additional charges for wrappers or transactions such as switching or re-registration. We believe that investment decisions should be driven by customer needs and financial objectives and should not be influenced by the threat of additional charges. For this reason, we offer access to our WealthSelect managed portfolio service at no additional charge to you or your clients, although VAT will become payable on the Service Charge for the Collective Investment Account if taking advantage of this service.
The platform offers flexible adviser charging functionality, allowing you to take fees on an upfront,, ongoing or ad hoc basis, by specifying a percentage or monetary amount. VAT can also be added on to your servicing fee.
