Why all the hype about low costs?
Whether you’re investing with the bank or with an investment manager like Sygnia, there are costs/fees involved. The industry standard is an average of approximately 2.5% – this is deducted from your investment value. With Sygnia, however, your costs can be as low as 1% – a monumental saving!
Here’s an example:
Sam, a 45-year old business executive, recently sold a property and wants to invest R1 000 000 of the proceeds towards his retirement.
He also wants to contribute R2 000 per month, with an annual payment escalation of 10% until the age of 65.
Sam points out to his broker that he wants to retire with as much money as possible.
Sam’s broker provides him with two illustrative quotes, one from Company A and one from Sygnia. Company A’s average investment cost over 20 years is 2.5%, while Sygnia’s is 1%. Below is a table illustrating the vast difference that this 1.5% saving in fees has on Sam’s retirement value.
|Lump sum investment:||R1 000 000||R1 000 000|
|Monthly contribution:||R2 000||R2 000|
|Estimated retirement value:||R7 814 294||R9 819 835|
