To buy a Fund that you already hold units in
The Funds that you currently hold are listed on the trading page. To trade a Fund that you currently hold, click the Buy button. This will enter the name into the Fund Name field, and you can proceed to choosing the type of order you wish to place.
Find the fund that you want to buy
- Click on the Trade Now button.
- Enter the company name into the search box.
- Select the Fund you wish to buy.
- Proceed to choosing the type of order you wish to place
If you cannot find the fund in the drop down list, use the Advanced Search
Here you can filter Funds by their Exchange, Sector, Industry, Name, International Securities Identification Number (ISIN) or Ticker. This tool is available when you are logged in. You can access this by clicking on the Search Funds above the search box in the Trade Funds section.
If you can't find the fund that you want to buy using our online search facility, please telephone the Davy Select Dealing Desk at 01 614 8900 and ask us to add the fund. Once we add the fund to our list of funds, you will be able to trade it online. However, if you place an order with the Dealing Desk by phone, you will be charged the higher commission for telephone trading (more information on charges).
Once you have selected your fund, the Last Price Per Unit, Frequency of Dealing and Deal Cut Off Time are displayed
Last Price Per Unit
The most recent price paid for a unit in a fund, usually from close of business on the last dealing day. This is calculated by taking the total units of a fund, subtracting the total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares in the fund after the close of the previous trading day. This value is used to determine the prices for buying and selling units in a fund.
The Last Price Per Unit is indicative only. Your order is unlikely to be dealt at this price. The actual deal price will be determined by the Fund Manager and may differ significantly from the last indicative price shown.
The currency that the fund is dealt in is displayed next to the Last Price Per Unit.
Frequency of Dealing
How frequently a fund is dealt. This could be daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly.
Deal Cut Off Time
Orders to deal funds must be sent to a centralised third party fund administrator, who then sends the order to the individual fund provider for execution on the next business day. The Deal Cut Off Time is the time by which your order must be placed to be included in the fund pricing for that day.
You should be aware that meeting the Davy dealing cut off time may not guarantee participation in the next pricing of the particular fund, due to the various cut offs being applied by relevant third parties. In certain circumstances, orders may not be executed for two or more business days. Please contact Davy Select should you require additional information in relation to specific funds.
