|Share Class||Stock Symbol||1Management fee||2MER||3TER|
This component of the MER is what you pay us for investment and financial services. We don’t charge this fee on the value of EdgePoint Wealth and, as such, the effective rate will be less than 1%.2
This compensates EdgePoint and includes the management fee, operational costs and sales taxes. The MER isn’t charged directly to you but is paid by Cymbria and ultimately reduces your investment returns.3
The trading expense ratio (TER) represents the trading expenses incurred by Cymbria. These expenses aren't included in the MER but they're still costs borne by the investor and reduce returns. The total cost of ownership is the sum of the MER plus the TER.
We measure investment success over periods of ten years or more and believe it takes considerable skill to consistently add value over the long term. As such, we place little value in the short-term investment results shown.
An important driver of wealth for Cymbria is the dividends from EdgePoint Wealth, one of Cymbria’s top holdings. EdgePoint typically pays dividends quarterly, which can be reinvested by Cymbria in its portfolio of investments or used to buy back Cymbria shares.
