Remember, past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. It’s a good idea to consider returns over the long term, as markets can fluctuate in the short-term.

Transition to retirement income account unit prices
When you invest in an investment option you buy “units” in that option. Each unit has a dollar value, called the “unit price”. Your account balance is calculated by multiplying the number of units you have in each investment option by the unit price of each option. As unit prices are calculated each business day, the value of your account may change daily.

Unit pricing error compensation
Australian Retirement Trust has put in place comprehensive controls in order to minimise the chance of unit pricing errors. Should the unlikely circumstance of an error occur and Australian Retirement Trust determines that compensation is payable to members that have been adversely affected, we aim to ensure existing Australian Retirement Trust members are in the same financial position as if the error did not occur. For exited members, only amounts $20 or greater will be compensated. Australian Retirement Trust’s policy is in line with industry standards and regulatory guidelines.
- The graphic illustration shown above is based on exit unit prices for the investment option selected and an initial investment of $1,000 invested at the applicable entry unit price. Unit prices are net of investment fees and costs and investment taxes.
- Past investment performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Returns may vary considerably over time.
- Each investment option has a different performance objective, risk profile, asset allocation and investment style which may also change from time to time. Each of these features may be significant in respect of the investment return for any option. For information on investment fees, the characteristics of each investment option and how unit prices are calculated, refer to the Super Savings Investment guide.
