Please refer to the MPF Scheme Brochure for more details of the management fees and other applicable fees, charges and expense8 of the Constituent Funds.

1. The management fees of all Constituent Funds are deducted from the asset of the fund.

2. Management fees include fees paid to the Trustee, Custodian, Administrator, Investment Manager (including fees based on fund performance, if any), Investment Agent and Sponsor for providing their services to the relevant Constituent Fund. They are usually charged as a percentage of the net asset value (NAV) of the relevant Constituent Fund.

In the case of each of the Core Accumulation Fund and the Age 65 Plus Fund, management fees payable to the parties named above (excluding the Custodian), or their delegates, can only (subject to certain exceptions in the MPF Ordinance) be charged as a percentage of the NAV of the Constituent Fund. These management fees are also subject to a statutory daily limit equivalent to 0.75% per annum of the NAV of the Constituent Fund which applies across both the Constituent Fund and underlying APIF(s) and ITCIS(s).

3. Fees and charges of a MPF Conservative Fund can be deducted from either (i) the assets of the MPF Conservative Fund or (ii) members' account by way of unit deduction. The MPF Conservative Fund under the HSBC Mandatory Provident Fund – SuperTrust Plus uses method (i) and, therefore, its unit prices, NAV and fund performance quoted have reflected the impact of fees and charges.

4. The percentage does not include the guarantee charge of 0.75% per annum of the NAV.

5. The Guaranteed Fund invests solely in an APIF in the form of an insurance policy provided by HSBC Life (International) Limited. The guarantee is also given by HSBC Life (International) Limited. Your investments in the Guaranteed Fund, if any, are therefore subject to the credit risks of HSBC Life (International) Limited.

Guarantee Conditions:

● Transfer of balances to a recipient scheme on termination of employment6

● Withdrawal of balances as a result of a payment with respect to one of the following:

o Termination of employment6;

o Reaching retirement age or normal retirement date;

o Death;

o Reaching early retirement date;

o Total incapacity;

o Terminal illness;

o Permanent departure from Hong Kong; or

o Making a claim on small balance under section 162(1)(c) of the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes (General) Regulation ('General Regulation')

6. This condition does not apply to balances in a personal account (as defined in the General Regulation) or a TVC account invested in the Guaranteed Fund. However, the other Guarantee Conditions will still be applicable to the accrued benefits held in the personal account or TVC account. Please refer to the ‘Guarantee features’ under ‘Guaranteed Fund’ in the MPF Scheme Brochure for details of the ‘Guarantee features’ (including in the context of payment of accrued benefits in instalments) and the ‘Guarantee Conditions’.

7. The account balance of a member in the Guaranteed Fund will be crystallised (the ‘Crystallised Amount’) on 31 December in the year in which the member reaches age 65. The Crystallised Amount will be the greater of the Actual Balance and the Guaranteed Balance to which the member would be entitled had the member withdrawn the accrued benefits from the Guaranteed Fund on 31 December in that year on the ground of reaching retirement age or normal retirement date. This is calculated in accordance with the MPF Scheme Brochure (the ‘31 December Amount’). However, where the 31 December Amount is less than the amount of accrued benefits as at the member’s 65th birthday calculated in accordance with the MPF Scheme Brochure (the ‘65th Birthday Amount’), the 65th Birthday Amount will be deemed to be the Crystallised Amount. Where the member switches or withdraws part of the investment out of the Guaranteed Fund between the member’s 65th birthday and 31 December in that year, the Crystallised Amount will be the higher of the 31 December Amount and the pro-rated 65th Birthday Amount calculated in the following manner: 

(X/Y) times Z

where:

X: the number of GF Units as at 31 December in the relevant year

Y: the number of GF Units as at 65th birthday of the member

Z: the greater of the Guaranteed Balance and the Actual Balance as at 65th birthday of the member.

The Crystallised Amount will then become the Actual Balance from 1 January in the following year. No further guarantee will apply to the Crystallised Amount and any new contributions or transfer-in assets that are to invest in the Guaranteed Fund thereafter (the ‘Relevant Amount’). However, while all fees and charges including the guarantee charge will continue to apply to the Relevant Amount, the guarantee charge will be rebated to the member on a monthly basis in arrears, calculated by using the daily NAV in that month. Please refer to Appendix I for the illustrative examples in the MPF Scheme Brochure for how the guarantee operates in the context of payment in instalment.

8. Other applicable fees, charges and expenses include but not limited to joining fee, annual fee, contribution charge, offer spread, bid spread, withdrawal charge and other expenses. For further details, please refer to the MPF Scheme Brochure
