All about
fees

We believe in bigger and brighter tomorrows for everyone

And we know that the fees you pay on your super account today can make a big difference to what your tomorrow might look like. That’s why we work hard to keep our fees low.
We’re a profit to member industry super fund.  So that means more money in your super account.
We’re big. So economies of scale help us keep a lid on costs. And we’re smart with technology, to make things simpler, easier and more efficient for you.

How your fees might look

If you’re in the Core Strategy (and you’d be in pretty good company as most of our members are in this investment option), and have a balance of $50,000, your annual fees will look like this.

Investment fee 0.67% of your balance per annum $335
Plus administration fee $1.30 per week, plus 0.1% of your account balance at the end of each month (capped at $800 per annum) $67.60 plus $50 per annum
Plus indirect cost ratio 0.09% per annum     $45
Total $497.60 per annum

What these fees cover

 
All super funds will charge you a fee for looking after your super. 
The total annual fee and costs cover the different components that keep your super working for you.

You’ll pay extra fees and costs for certain transactions and if you have extra things with your super.  Like if you have insurance, you need some complex financial advice that involves a fee, you make multiple withdrawals, or you need to split your super with your ex.

Remember, when you’re thinking about brighter tomorrows, low fees are just one part of the package. Over your working life, it’s the combination of low fees and competitive investment returns that delivers the real goods.

Administration fee

The administration fee covers things like collecting contributions from you and your employer, keeping records of your transactions, sending you an annual statement and being there when you need to talk to us through one of our service channels such as our call centre, Live Chat or Rest App.

 

Investment fee

The investment fee is for the things we do to help your money grow. Our range of investment options have different fees depending on what’s involved in managing the money.

 

Indirect cost ratio

The indirect cost covers the expenses of an investment. For example, stamp duty when buying property, or brokerage costs when buying or selling shares.  It’s included when we calculate unit prices, so it’s not an extra fee that you pay. Again, different investment options have different indirect cost ratios.
