What is the Assessment of Value?
Our 2nd annual Assessment of Value for our UK fund ranges is now available.
The Assessment of Value is an initiative introduced by our regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), following the conclusion of their Asset Management Market Study in 2017.

We, like other fund managers, are required by the FCA to complete an annual Assessment of Value report for each fund and class that we manage, across our UK-domiciled fund ranges.
We welcome this initiative. We believe it represents an opportunity to better communicate directly with our investors, allowing us to set out how effectively we believe we have met the range of expectations we set for our products. This ranges from the performance we generate and the services we offer, to what and how we charge for them.
What have we published for our Assessment of Value findings?
The Assessment of Value report summarises our overall findings across our UK fund ranges. We have also published individual fund Value Statements, summarising our findings and conclusions for each class, to provide more detailed information for investors on their specific investments with us.
If you are unsure which class you are invested in, you can:
- Check your latest bi-annual statement
- Contact us in the way you would normally get in touch
- Consult with your financial adviser
How is Jupiter approaching the Assessment of Value?
Jupiter’s approach to the assessment reflects the firm’s values and culture, including what we seek to deliver for our investors across all our core activities.
Following the acquisition of Merian Global Investors, we continue to have two boards responsible for our UK-domiciled fund ranges. Nevertheless, we have conducted our assessment by means of a single, combined process, to explain to investors in our UK-domiciled funds the value we believe we have provided across our entire fund ranges.
1. Quality of Service
4. Economies of Scale
7. Classes of Units or Shares
Do investors need to do anything?
The Assessment of Value is a means of informing you of how we have been meeting the expectations we have set for your investment with us. You don’t need to do anything, although this document may help you and your adviser to review whether the chosen investment strategy is still aligned with your financial goals.
