Gina Miller, head of the not-for-profit group, said the new calculator was the first of its kind to be launched anywhere in the world, and was the next stage in the campaign’s 18-month crusade against hidden costs and fees, allowing investors to see the likely profit and costs from their investments.

Ms Miller said: “This tool allows users to calculate the cost of their investments in one number, and we hope it drives new levels of cost transparency resulting in greater competition among product providers.”
