What fees does Itrust Invest charge?

At Itrust Invest our philosophy is to make high-quality investments easily accessible and affordable to parents and Guardians around the country.

We don’t charge any fee for the initial setup of your account, nor do we charge brokerage fees on further contributions or withdrawals or exit fees.

To keep your Guardian and up to 10 Beneficiary accounts running smoothly 24/7 we do charge an Account Maintenance Fee of $3.50 per month or $35 if paid annually. We don’t however charge the Account Maintenance Fee if someone wishes to provide a one-off Gift as a Guest.

The responsible entity for Itrust Invest (Stapleton Asset Management Limited) does charge an annual management fee of 0.3075% of funds under management to cover the costs of managing the Itrust Invest fund. There are also additional management expenses required to ensure the legal, regulatory, accounting, auditing, and banking compliance of the fund, which we estimate to be 0.415% of funds under management.

For more information, please review the PDS and also visit our fee breakdown page.

What are the tax implications of investing in Itrust Invest?

An outline of the tax implications of investing in Itrust Invest is contained in the PDS. You should seek advice from your financial planner or accountant about how it affects you.

Itrust Invest makes distributions on an annual basis and distributions are reinvested in Itrust Invest. Where a distribution is made, the Guardian will receive a Distribution Statement which sets out the amount of the distribution and the tax nature of the distribution.

Investors also need to consider Capital Gains Tax (CGT) in periods where the Investor sells or transfers their investments. We are not able to provide a CGT calculation or report, however we can provide all transaction and distribution information to allow you, or your accountant, to calculate this.

Can I transfer an Itrust Invest investment to a Beneficiary when they turn 18, without Capital Gains Tax applying to this transfer?

In some circumstances it may be possible for a Guardian to transfer ownership in the Itrust Invest units to their Beneficiary when the Beneficiary turns 18, and for Capital Gains Tax not to apply to this transfer. However, with all things tax, we recommend you seek your own advice about this from a qualified tax advisor.
