    Why do some fund managers have different Buying and Selling Prices whilst others have the same for both.
    Different Buying and Selling Prices; Old Mutual, Jupiter and Artemis.
    Same Buy and sell Prices; Schroder; Baillie Gifford; AXA Framlington; Investec; Threadneedle and Invesco.

    I am sure there are others in both categories

    Where the spread includes a percentage initial fee, sometimes this element is refunded. For example iShares Emerging Market Equity Index H Acc currently has a spread of 160.0p - 168.80p. This 8.8p spread is made up mostly of the initial charge - 5% of 168.8p i.e. 8.44p which is refunded on most platforms e.g. HL. The actual purchase price would be 160.36p giving a spread of roughly 0.2%.

    Old Mutual are changing the pricing structure on some of their funds, seem to be the popular ones as well.

    From 29 January 2018 they will change to single pricing, this means they will also apply a dilution adjustment to cover costs. ies

    What exactly is a dilution adjustment. Is it a percentage of a set sum or can they just pick a figure out of the air!!!.
