SS&C Hubwise - Schedule of Charges

Custody Charge

The Individual (Retail) Client Annual Platform Charge is detailed within your Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) which represents you Custody Agreement with Hubwise. For Corporate & Institutional Clients the Annual Platform Charge will also be detailed within the T&Cs, together with any tiering criteria relating to portfolio size.

This Platform Charge is a basis points (bps) charge applied per account type (wrapper) per year; it is applicable to all holdings and cash and is collected each month. The Platform Charge (bps) may be capped for some account types, however where it is, under the terms of your Platform Service, this cap will only apply for domestic holdings and both the cap and the Platform Charge (bps) may be increased if the number of holdings in a client portfolio materially exceeds 20, or there are individual accounts valued above £1,000,000.

Interest – Hubwise has rules concerning Client Money and where it can and cannot be invested. Our number one concern is that our Clients' money is always protected, and we will seek to avoid following high interest rates if that puts the underlying deposit at any risk, in our opinion. Client Money deposits are placed with a range of top-quality banks and with differing term periods, from overnight to three months. In the event that Hubwise cannot recover any loss of assets resulting from sub-custodian failure, you may be eligible to some compensation under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

Net income earned on these deposits is paid to our Clients in full every six months, calculated as a blended rate across the accounts being used. Please note that in extreme circumstances interest rates may be negative and/or bank charges may exceed interest earned and be deducted from the deposits.

Please refer to the following sections for any supplemental Charges: (1) Product Charges where investments are held in a Hubwise SIPP and/or Hubwise Offshore Bond; (2) For exchange-traded securities, and to cover the manual trading of any funds; (3) For exceptional processing activities.
