How to use our independent Investment Fees Calculator

Investment Fees Calculator - Boring Money

If you’re new to investing

1. Tell us how much money you’d like to invest

Whether you’d like to invest a lump sum in one go or top up your account every month, enter the full amount you’d like to invest over a year.


2. Choose which type(s) of account you’ll be using

You might just want to make the most of a simple tax-free ISA, or you might want to mix and match with Junior ISAs, ISAs, Self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs), and general investment accounts (GIAs).


3. Compare your results – both fees and reviews

At a glance, we’ll show you your options from 20 different providers. As well as estimates of your annual fees, you can compare recommendation scores from existing customers and star ratings from our own independent experts. You can even click through to our Best Buys pages to read reviews and further details about each provider. (Scroll down this page for a snapshot.)


If you’re an experienced investor

You’ll use our Investment Fees Calculator in much the same way as above, but can also tailor the calculations for more accurate results.

You can fine-tune things like:

• How you split your investments between funds and shares

• How many individual funds and shares you’ll invest in

• How often you’re likely to trade over the year
