What is the cash facility?
Our ISA, Junior ISA (JISA), Collective Investment Account (CIA) and Collective Retirement account (CRA) have their own cash facility.
The facility has a functional purpose, designed to support the efficient running of your investments by avoiding small trades that could limit other activity. For example, paying for fees and charges. It also enables you to temporarily hold cash alongside your investments to support your wider investment strategy.
It is not suitable for those who wish to have predominantly cash holdings for long periods.
Features of the cash facility:
- Use it to pay for charges, fees and income instead of selling other investments you hold
- Our automated cash management feature ensures sufficient cash is held to cover charges and fees
- Option to receive dividends and distributions
- Option to phase your investments into the market over a period that suits you.
If you invest in our Collective Investment Bond, cash will be used in some instances to fund adviser fees or Quilter’s charges. This is known as transactional cash. Transactional cash cannot be selected as an investment within this product and no interest is paid on cash held within the bond.
