Similar to brokerage costs, when you transact in financial assets there are facilitation costs incurred. The buy/sell spread are implemented to recoup facilitation costs, so as not to disadvantage existing unitholders. It is important to note that the buy/sell spread is not a ‘fee’ and the spread itself is retained within the unit trust, it does not benefit the fund manager or any of the other service providers.

If you invest in the Unhedged fund, you are exposed to fluctuations in the Australian dollar. This can be a good thing if our dollar falls relative to the US dollar. For example, if you were invested in the Lincoln U.S. Growth Fund Unhedged and the value of the Australian dollar decreased relative to the US dollar, then the value of your portfolio would increase. Of course it can also work the other way around.
If you invest in the Hedged fund, we use strategies to offset the impact of currency fluctuations. This means if you invest in the Lincoln U.S. Growth Fund Hedged you are protected from the adverse impact of a rising Australian dollar. But equally, you don’t get to benefit from situations where the Australian dollar is falling.
If you have a strong view on where the Australian dollar is heading, you could favour one approach over the other.
