Put simply, there are no hidden charges.

Transparency is a key principle of our relationship with you. It’s vital if that relationship is to be a long one.

We don’t believe in creating an air of mystique to hide behind. We’re very upfront at what we’re good at and what we leave to others. We have industry-leading transparency, giving you real-time access to your portfolio if you are on the Old Mutual platform, alongside very clear quarterly reporting. We are also completely transparent about what we charge you.
It seems to us that this is the bedrock of the trusting relationship you need to have with your wealth manager. After all, we are advising you on some of the most important and sensitive aspects of your life. We take that responsibility extremely seriously.
