Fees and Charges

Unlike many other fund managers, Jad Capital Management do not charge an annual management charge to our clients.

Performance Fee

As is common with most investment funds of this type, Jad Capital Management charge clients solely based upon the performance of the trading account.  This means that if the investor does not see an increase in his investment, then Jad Capital Management will not profit either. Jad Capital Management will retain a Performance Fee of 25%  ie. a 25% share of the profits earned on the investment, subject to a ‘high watermark’ (as defined below).

High Watermark Calculation

The implementation of a ‘high watermark’ means that Jad Capital Management will only receive a Performance Fee when the value of a client’s investment is greater than its previous greatest value. Should the value of the investment subsequently drop in value then Jad Capital Management will only receive a Performance Fee again once the value of the investment has once again reached it’s greatest value.

Let us look at an example to illustrate how this works:

January 1, 2014 – Client invests $100,000

February 1, 2014 – Investment has increased to $105,000
Value:    $105,000
Profit:    $5,000
Performance Fee: $1,250 (25% of $5,000)
Closing balance: $103,750

March 1, 2014 – Investment has decreased to $103,000
Value:    $103,000
Loss:    $750
Performance Fee: $0
Closing balance: $103,000

April 1, 2014 – Investment has increased to $104,750
Value: $104,750
Profit: $1,750
Performance Fee: $0
NOTE: No Performance Fee is charged because the ‘High Watermark’ of $105,000 has not been reached – as this is the highest value that the client’s investment reached.
Closing balance: $104,750

May 1, 2014 – Investment has increased to $107,000
Value: $107,000
Profit: $2,250
Performance Fee:  $500 (25% of $2,000)


NOTE: The performance fee is only charged on the profit in excess of the ‘High Watermark’, ie $105,000. 
Closing balance: $106,500
