Estimated investment fees and indirect costs

Estimated investment fees are our best estimates based on recent experience and our current long-term expectations. The Indirect cost ratio is calculated using actual costs and reasonable estimates of actual costs incurred. It’s important to note that actual investment fees and indirect costs can vary each financial year. 

Index (passively managed) options:

  • 7 index investments that are able to be mixed to suit any life stage.
  • The index investments are lower in cost than the actively managed investments.

Socially Conscious Balanced:

  • This option seeks to invest with managers that are identified leaders in their responsible approach to environmental, social and ethical considerations, labour standards and governance.
  • Managers are required to avoid companies operating within sectors with recognised high negative social impact, which means the option will avoid exposure to companies with material exposure to the production or manufacture of alcohol, armaments, gambling, pornography, tobacco and nuclear power (including uranium). Material exposure is considered to be where a company derives more than 5% of its total revenue from these industries. The option will also avoid exposure to companies that derive more than 5% of revenues from the exploitation of thermal coal or oil sands.
  • Certified by the Responsible Investments Association Australia (RIAA).
