A performance fee is payable at the rate of 10% of the annualised excess performance relative to the benchmark in the two previous financial years, applied to the average of the total assets less current liabilities of the Company. The fee is payable annually in April and is capped at 0.25% of the average of the total assets less current liabilities.
