ISA Costs and Charges Calculator

The MiFID II costs and charges rules require investment firms to give clients costs and charges disclosure for relevant investments.

We’ve come up with a calculator which does all the number crunching – so you don’t have to.

The MiFID II costs and charges disclosure documents can be found from the Link Asset Services website via the PruAdviser website.

To assist you in the advice process we’ve created this handy calculator that can help you combine relevant information about the Prudential ISA, your advice charges, and view this in a single convenient document.

The Prudential ISA is provided by Link Financial Investments Limited which is the ISA Plan Manager. The LF Prudential OEIC funds are operated by Link Fund Solutions Limited.

  • This calculator also supports investment in the PruFund range of funds within the Prudential ISA.

  • This calculator is only to be used by financial advisers.

  • The outputs of this calculator are not an illustration and shouldn't be considered as advice.

Simple steps to use the costs and charges calculator 

  • Add the proposed amount of investment in up to three funds - any combination of transfer, single and regular investment.
  • Choose the amounts going into the range of LF Prudential OEIC funds and/or PruFund funds, based on your client’s fund choices.
  • Add your adviser charges – in percentage or money terms – including frequency and duration.
  •  View, copy & paste* or print specific sections to meet your disclosure requirements.

But before you start, we want to let you know…

The basis of the calculations

  • Fund information is provided by Prudential and Link Asset Services. 
  • The calculator is based on a maximum of three funds. If more funds are required, you would need to do separate calculations.
  • We show all cost categories, whether relevant to an individual fund or not. In certain cases this means the disclosures will be £0 for some cost categories.
  • Link Financial Investments (LFI) doesn’t charge investors for operating the Prudential ISA accounts.
  • You can insert the following adviser charge information:
    • Single investment/transfer value Set-up adviser charge;
    • Regular monthly Set-up adviser charge;
    • Ongoing adviser charge.
  • You choose an assumed gross growth rate ranging from 2% - 8% (defaulting to 5%), to show the effect of costs and charges on future returns.

Some important information

  • Any details from the calculator output isn’t an indication of the return they may receive. The output is designed to show the approximate amount and effect of costs and charges on your clients’ potential investment. 

  • You need to consider your other disclosure requirements under MIFID II for investments into OEIC funds. You can find more information on the FCA’s website**. 

  • You can also obtain Key Investor Information Documents (KIID) and OEIC Prospectuses from the Link Asset Services website via the PruAdviser website

  • For investments into the insurance policy for PruFund funds, which come under PRIIP regulations, here’s a Prudential ISA Key Information Document for single/transfers and regular investments. Also here’s your Investment Option Documents, and a Key Features Document
