Investment strategy

To invest totally in shares on a passive basis, with approximately half in Australian shares and half in international shares.

#The investment fee is a measure of the fees deducted from investments. These fees include the cost of the fund’s investment managers, custodian and investment advisor and certain other costs of the fund. The investment fee is the total of these costs, divided by the net asset value of the fund. These fees are deducted directly from the investment earnings before they are allocated to member accounts. They are therefore not deducted from your super account directly.
^The indirect cost ratio (ICR) represents estimated costs incurred by the fund’s investment managers before investment earnings are received. These costs take into account the fund’s experience in the last financial year and are not deducted from your account or from the fund’s assets. They include estimated transactional and operational costs (as detailed in our Fees and Costs booklet) and performance-related fees.
