Fees and Expenses

Investment Fees

Like many other investments, PEPP does not bill you separately for fees. The Plan deducts these expenses from the unit value. Fees vary between investment funds.

All investment options incur a common administration fee. Plus, each option is charged a different investment fee based on the asset mix.

The types of fees reflected in the unit values are:

  • Administration fees - salaries, benefits, computer systems, and general Plan operating expenses, including investment consultant services;
  • Investment custodial fees - safekeeping and transaction fees; and
  • Investment manager fees - managing investments within the Plan.

PEPP's management expense fees tend to be lower compared to outside investments because PEPP calculates its fees on a cost-recovery basis.
