The Co-operative Investments has discounted the initial charge on a range of unit trusts and ISAs by 2%.
The discount will apply to anyone investing over £7,000 into a unit trust or ISA through a Co-operative financial adviser before 8 August. The usual 5% initial fees will then be reduced to 3%.
A range of products with varying risk profiles are eligible for the reduction. The funds include: the Sustainable Leaders Trust, the UK Growth, UK Income with Growth Trust and European Trust.
"The discount makes a difference because it means more of your investment is working for you straight away,” says Zack Hocking, head of investments at The Co-operative Investments.
"Even despite periods of volatility, stock market based investments are proven to provide better returns than traditional savings accounts if invested for the long term."
The firm uses a responsible investment process that fully integrates financial and environmental, social and governance analysis.
The Co-operative Investments is the fund management arm of CFS, part of the Co-operative Group.IFAonline
