In this section, we talk about our investment beliefs and approach and how we invest to grow your retirement savings. 

Our Investment Beliefs

We have eight core investment beliefs that guide and shape how we manage your retirement savings.

How we invest your money

We invest your money across different investment markets using a range of asset classes and investment strategies to meet our investment objectives and grow your retirement savings.

Investing across many types of investment markets and asset classes with a wide range of investment strategies takes skill and expertise so Rest appoints specialist investment managers.

How we monitor performance

We appoint/engage a professional investment consultant, JANA, to monitor the performance and capability of all of our investment managers.

Rest’s approach to responsible investing

Rest believes that environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are important when investing because they represent risks that could influence the performance of our investments over the long term.

Managing governance issues

Rest supports the work of the Royal Commission and disapproves of the misconduct which has been occurring in the financial services sector.

Governance issues such as those raised before the Royal Commission have an influence on an organisation’s long-term financial performance.

Rest's Investment Managers

Rest appoints investment managers who have the right skills and expertise to manage your money in the relevant investment markets, asset classes and investment strategies.

We set an investment objective for each of our investment managers who are regularly monitored to deliver the right outcomes for you.
