  3. If you select a Tax-Free Investment, you can invest up to R33 000 each year, until your total investment reaches R500 000 which is your lifetime limit. If you go over these limits you will be taxed at 40% of the extra amount by SARS. You can withdraw money from your portfolio at any time, but remember that the amount you withdraw remains part of your maximum lifetime investment amount and cannot be reinvested at a later stage. This means withdrawals permanently reduce your total amount of allowable tax-free savings. By continuing, you have read and agree to the terms and conditions.

Effective Annual Cost

The Effective Annual Cost (EAC) is a measure which has been introduced to allow you to compare the charges you incur and their impact on investment returns when you invest in different Financial Products. It is expressed as an annualised percentage. The EAC is made up of four components, which are added together, as shown in the table below. The effect of some of the charges may vary, depending on your investment period. The EAC calculation assumes that an investor terminates his or her investment in the Financial Product at the end of the relevant periods shown in the table.
