Redemption Price

Redemption Price

This is the rate for which an investment vehicle will purchase or redeem its shares. Typically, the redemption price remains set at the share’s actual net present value. It is also known as the marketplace, call, or bidding price. 

What is the redemption price? 

In the financial and economic worlds, the word “redemption” has various meanings. Redeeming a fixed-income instrument is paying it back before the bond’s expiration date. The most popular form of fixed-income investment is a bond, although additional options comprise certifications of deposit (CDs); Treasury notes (T-notes), and preferred stock. 

The term “redemption” is also used in reference to present cards and vouchers that customers can use to purchase items and amenities. 

  • Redeeming annuity securities means paying them back prior to the due date and is known as the term in economics.  
  • Shareholders in mutual funds have the option of requesting from the management company an exchange of all or a portion of their ownership shares. 
  • Capital profits or losses for investors may result from redemptions. 
  • Any capital losses realised in the exact same period will be used to offset the owner’s capital gains taxes. 

Understanding redemption price 

Bonds and other fixed-income assets provide monthly guaranteed interest rates to investors. Treasuries may be redeemed either before or on the actual day of expiration. Investors who redeem bonds at maturity are given their nominal value, which is often known as the principal amount of the bond. This pertains to the bond’s initial issue price and represents the sum of funds that the firm that issued the bond has agreed to pay its holders back. 

A security that can be redeemed by the company that issued it prior to the bond’s declared expiration date is called a callable share, additionally referred to as a redeeming bond. The cost that will be determined if the issuer will buy back bonds from buyers before they mature is known as the redeeming value.  

A bond that is callable enables the holder of the bond to make an early repayment to repay the loan. In the event that the economic rates of interest decline, an issuer may decide to call its debt. 

Benefits of the redemption price 

This raises the expense of trading and buying trust shares frequently, so redemption charges can reduce short-termism. They are sometimes seen as an unavoidable evil that must exist in order to shield shareholders from greater transaction expenses. 

Proactive brief redemptions cause the mutual fund administrator to face two major benefits, such as: 

  • To handle sales requirements, the fund must maintain bigger cash balances. 
  • The fund’s total operational expenses rise as a result of trading on a short-term basis. 

In order to maintain a fund’s cash balances and keep running costs low, redemption fees are imposed. Also, the investment company is able to recover the processing costs related to the withdrawal and shield other shareholders from needing to pay. This is done by penalising the shareholder who decides to return the securities within the allotted time period. 

Working on the redemption price 

A stock fund frequently has a renewal fee. The fund’s organisation might assess a redemption fee whenever a shareholder sells securities. The fee is distributed among fund investors in proportion to the investment amounts to encourage equality. 

Investing in mutual funds is normally done as a component of an overtime plan and is not generally intended for day trading or profiting from timing markets. Due to this, scheduling mutual funds, despite being legal, is discouraged and typically incurs extra expenses for the client. 

Fund managers generally impose a redemption fee during a predetermined time limit to prevent trading on a temporary basis. Investors are frequently assessed for the redemption fee as they depart or liquidate their holdings.  

Examples of the redemption price 

We customers frequently seek redemption throughout our daily lives. A gift certificate or voucher, for instance, is a type of redemption since the worth of a gift card or voucher is exchanged for something of worth.  

For example, the business XYZ purchased securities having an initial worth of US$1,000 plus a 10-year maturity period. 

Frequently Asked Questions

A mutual investment’s redeeming price represents the amount charged when fund shares are withdrawn. It usually corresponds to the sub-units’ net worth when they are redeemed. Upon removing certain investment units, a shareholder will receive a total return based on that cost. 

The price for each unit, when an investment company repurchases the shares, is known to be the repurchase/redemption price. When investors redeem their units or transfer them to different mutual fund strategies or initiatives, they purchase the shares back via the customer. If and where necessary, the exit load is additionally included in this. 

The selling price, often known as the NAV, is the cost a unitholder pays for participating in a flexible plan. If appropriate, it can also incorporate the sales load.  

Repurchase or redemption cost denotes the cost, expressed as a percentage of NAV that is charged when a perpetual plan buys or restores its unitholders’ holdings. If appropriate, it can also include an exit burden. 

The amount in which securities could be repurchased by the issuing business prior to the expiration date is known as its redemption value. If the redemption value of a bond is more than the original purchase price, the bond is bought at a reduced rate. 

The sum that the issuer pays at expiration in lieu of interest or an incentive is known as the maturity/redemption worth. Redeemed at a higher price is the term used when the redeemed funds exceed the market amount of the issued Bond/NCD. 


The repurchase/redemption cost represents the cost per share during which an investment fund can “repurchase” the shares.  

The selling price is the cost or NAV a unitholder pays for participating in a flexible plan. Depending on the situation, it might also entail a sales burden. 

The cost or NAV when a convertible plan acquires or reclaims its shares from shareholders is known as the repurchase or redeeming price. Depending on the situation, it might also involve an exit load.

    An ETF is not like a typical unit trust as the units of the ETF (the “Units“) are to be listed and traded like any share on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (“SGX-ST”). Listing on the SGX-ST does not guarantee a liquid market for the Units which may be traded at prices above or below its NAV or may be suspended or delisted. Investors may buy or sell the Units on SGX-ST when it is listed. Investors cannot create or redeem Units directly with PCM and have no rights to request PCM to redeem or purchase their Units. Creation and redemption of Units are through PDs if investors are clients of the PDs, who have no obligation to agree to create or redeem Units on behalf of any investor and may impose terms and conditions in connection with such creation or redemption orders. Please refer to the Prospectus of the ETF for more details.  

    Investments are subject to investment risks including the possible loss of the principal amount invested. The purchase of a unit in a fund is not the same as placing your money on deposit with a bank or deposit-taking company. There is no guarantee as to the amount of capital invested or return received. The value of the units and the income accruing to the units may fall or rise. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of the future or likely performance of the Products.
