Our indexed investment options

Rest’s three indexed options give you access to Australian shares, Overseas shares or a Balanced option.

What is an indexed option?

An indexed option invests in line with the index that measures the performance of a certain type of investment, such as the S&P/ASX 300 which is made up of 300 companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange. This means that an investment in an indexed option aims to perform in line with the market return.

It's a bit different from the active management approach we use with some of our other investment options - like the Core Strategy. Active management means that we're always looking for ways to add investment value over the long term. We do this by investing in different types of assets, like property and infrastructure, by using specialist investment managers, and by adjusting how we allocate funds to different asset classes depending on what markets are doing now, and where we think they're heading.


Balanced - Indexed

An index based investment in a mixture of growth and defensive assets which aims to perform in line with the benchmark return (before tax) over all time periods. The benchmark is calculated using the S&P/ASX300 Accumulation Index, the MSCI World ex-Australia ex-Tobacco Net Dividends Reinvested Index, the Bloomberg AusBond Composite 0+ Years Index, the JP Morgan Government Bond Index – Global Hedged in AUD and the Bloomberg AusBond Bank Bill Index.

Risk Level: High


Australian Shares - Indexed

An index based investment in Australian shares, which aims to perform in line with the benchmark S&P/ASX300 Accumulation Index (before tax) over all time periods.

Risk Level: Very High

Overseas Shares - Indexed

An index based investment in overseas shares, which aims to perform in line with the MSCI World ex-Australia ex-Tobacco Net Dividends Reinvested Index (unhedged in AUD) (before tax) over all time periods.

Risk Level: High

What's the cost?

Because our indexed options invest predominantly in shares, bonds and cash securities which make up the relevant index, the costs of this type of investment are normally low.
