Authorised in France since the publication of the French Asset Management Association’s (AFG) charter on 20 June 2014, « swing pricing » is a mechanism which enables the net asset value to be calculated in a way which assures more equality among shareholders, notably by reducing the dilution effect related to significant subscription or redemption movements. In the absence of such a mechanism, the costs of readjusting the fund would be borne by shareholders who are already in the fund, whereas the costs are actually caused by the movements of other investors, namely those entering the fund or withdrawing from it.
