Investment fees and costs

Investment fees and costs are the fees and costs charged to you for managing each investment option. Australian Retirement Trust sets investment fees and costs to match expected costs. The estimated investment fees and costs are our best estimates based on recent experience and our current long-term expectations for ongoing investment costs. Investment fees and costs are deducted from the daily unit prices. For more information refer to the Super Savings guide.

Below are our current estimated investment fees and costs and transaction costs for our investment options.
