Regulatory Guide 97 - Disclosing fees and costs in PDSs and periodic statements (RG97) sets out how fees and costs should be disclosed in Product Disclosure Statements (PDSs), investor-directed portfolio services (IDPS) Guides and periodic statements. We outline the key changes so that you can update your clients. 


There are no additional fees or costs being charged, it is simply a different way of disclosing and presenting the information for transparency.

There is a new requirement to include Net Transaction Costs in the Example of fees and costs in the PDSs.

>> The main change is to the Investment Menu where estimated transaction fees and estimated total fees are new disclosure fields for each  model.
