What is a Unit Price

What is a Fund Unit Price?

When you invest into a managed fund, the investment amount that you deposit into that fund is placed into an investment pool with other investors money for your investment manager to trade.

By investing your money, you then own an agreed percentage of that pool of money (the Fund).

To determine what percentage of the fund you own, the total value of the funds under management is calculated and then the amount of money that you deposited into the fund is broken up into shares of the fund which is also more commonly known as units of the fund.

Hypothetical Example:
If the fund value was $700,000 and you invested $300,000 = the total value of the fund would then be $1,000,000
You would own 30% of the fund aka 30% of the Shares (units)

The unit price represents how much each unit or "share" of a fund is worth.

How Is The Daily Unit Price Calculated

Managed funds are required by law to calculate the daily value of the fund and the individual unit price of the fund each business day.

The fund’s value is determined by calculating the overall value of all the available funds and investments that the investment manager is trading each day.

Once this figure is determined we then minus any daily expenses that the fund may have leaving us with the daily total value of the fund.

Hypothetical Example:
$1,002,000 (the value of the overall fund) - $2,000 (the daily expenses of the fund) = $1,000,000 (the daily total of the fund)

Once this daily value has been determined, we then divide the total value of the fund by total number of shares (units) within the fund. This provides the daily unit price.

Hypothetical Examples:
$1,000,000 (the total daily of fund) ÷ 1,000,000 (total number of units within the fund) = $1 unit price

If you invested $100,000 you would receive 100,000 units of the fund.

Then assume the investment managers performed well ant the unit price went to $1.40 per unit
Your total units would now be worth $140,000

High-Water Marks

A High-Water Mark is the the highest peak in value that our funds have reached.

Using a High-Water Mark ensures that our investment managers are only paid on their performance if we exceed the Funds previous High-Water Mark.

This means our investment managers do not get paid for poor performance. If our investment manager loses money over a period, they must get the fund above the previous historical High-Water Mark before receiving any performance bonus.

This chart shows examples of when a High-Water Mark has been reached and when a performance fee has been achieved by the Investment managers performance (see examples: A, B, C, D & E).
