Transaction fees

There’s a small transaction fee for buying and selling companies. The fee is based on the dollar amount you want to buy, or the dollar amount you receive when you sell. There’s more detail on the companies page, and also in our help centre.

Management fees

There’s a management fee built into the price of ETFs and managed funds. These are charged by the fund manager, not Sharesies. Some fund managers also charge a buy or sell fee that they include in the price. The fees are different for each fund, so please check the fund info before you invest.
