The buy/sell spreads represent the estimated transaction costs, including brokerage fees and stamp duty, incurred when buying or selling underlying assets in relation to our investment options.

The spread charged is an additional cost to you when you contribute or withdraw from your account, if you switch between investment options or any other transaction is processed in your account balance (for example deduction of fees or insurance costs).

The buy/sell spreads are not a fee paid to Rest but are used to meet underlying asset transaction costs when incurred. They are set by the Trustee and may change within the range without prior notice. The spreads will be reviewed on a regular basis and is available online at rest.com.au.  You should consider these costs when making any investment decision.
