No Platform Fees

Most investment platforms levy an administration charge for holding your funds, which is based on a percentage of your investment or a flat fee. Some platforms also impose a fund dealing charge which you pay when you buy or sell shares in a fund.

By investing in the Blue Whale Growth Fund directly through Link Asset Services there are no platform fees or fund dealing charges to pay.

The Fund Management Centre is Link Asset Services' newly launched platform which enables investors to buy and sell shares in the Blue Whale Growth Fund online.
