When you invest in Allan Gray unit trusts we only charge fees within our unit trusts, which are already deducted from the return your employees see. There are no fees for using our group retirement annuity system.

We communicate directly with all employees, including sending them their investment statements. They can also access their statements, reports and articles of interest online at any time. We provide training and investor education on request.

Reasons a group retirement annuity may not be suitable for your business

  • Employees cannot take their full benefit as cash when they retire after 55. Employees can only take up to one-third as cash. The rest must be used to purchase an investment product that will provide a retirement income.
  • Employees cannot take a full or partial withdrawal when they leave their employer. This is different to traditional arrangements and may mean no access to cash at a time when some cash may be useful to the individual
