The total fees and charges payable by you will include the fees for the BT Invest service as well as any fees and costs of the available investments chosen by you. It is important to understand the fee of any available investment you choose, and that those fees will be in addition to the fees charged for BT Invest.
The amount you pay for specific investments, is generally shown in the relevant product disclosure statement or other disclosure documents for each available investment.
You must maintain a minimum $100 balance in your BT Cash Hub at all times. The BT Cash management fee is not deducted from your account, but is deducted from the total investment return of BT Cash. The amount of the fee equates to the total returns of BT Cash (being the income earned on the assets of BT Cash) less the total of distributions paid to investors in BT Cash. The total income distributed to investors will be based on the distribution rates determined by the issuer of BT Cash from time to time. Distribution rates are variable and may change without notice.
Distribution rates are in the BT Cash Fact Sheet available online at btinvest.com.au/documents.
|Investment management fee||0.42% p.a.
of the total value invested
|Underlying asset fees||Depending on each asset’s allocation within the managed portfolio the overall cost can be up to 0.28% p.a., but this may change from time to time.|
