Example: If Trustee fee is 0.06% per annum of NAV (market value of all the securities in the fund), subject to a minimum fee of RM18,000 and a maximum fee of RM600,000 per annum.
If NAV is RM800 million
0.06% x 800 million = RM480,000
RM480,000 is more than RM18,000 and less than RM600,000, trustee fee is 0.06%
If NAV is RM1.6 billion
0.06% x 1.6 billion = RM960,000
RM960,000 is more than RM600,000, so trustee fee is RM600,000 = 0.04% per annum
