How are Entry (application) and Exit (withdrawal) prices calculated?Answer:
The Application Price (also described as the issue price) is the price at which units are issued when an investor invests in a fund. This is generally calculated by using the Net Asset Value (mid) unit price plus the transaction cost factor.
However units issued under a distribution reinvestment plan are issued at the Net Asset Value unit price applicable at the date of reinvestment in accordance with each Funds’ constitution.
The Withdrawal Price (also described as the redemption price) is the price at which units are redeemed when an investor withdraws from a Fund. This is generally calculated by using the Net Asset Value unit price minus the transaction cost factor.
