The value of your investments can go down as well as up and you may get back less than was paid in.

How much does a Personal Portfolio cost?

The cost for a Personal Portfolio is made up of two separate charges. How much this will cost you will depend on the choices you make.

There is the ‘total fund charge’. This is what the fund manager charges you each year for investing in a specific fund.

Then there’s the ‘platform charge’. This is the cost for the services Standard Life provides you.

These charges combined is called your ‘overall charge’. This is the amount you will pay each year for your Personal Portfolio.

Interest rates and charges for cash accounts

With our Personal Portfolio you are automatically set up with two cash accounts. We may pay an interest rate on the cash held in these accounts. We apply a cash management administration charge (CMAC) for the administration of the cash held in these accounts. Different interest rates and CMACs may apply to each account. Read more information on interest rates and CMAC.

You can find full details of all charges and terms in the Individual Savings Account and Personal Portfolio Terms and Conditions and Wrap Services Customer Terms and Conditions.

Remember, unlike an ISA you may also pay tax on any potential growth in your Personal Portfolio.
