1From 1 July 2019, a 3% fee cap will apply to the total of all administration fees, investment fees and indirect costs for defined contribution accounts with a balance of less than $6,000. It will be applied by a rebate of any such fees in excess o3f % of your defined contribution/income stream account balance, calculated at 30 June each year or when you exit the Fund. The cap doesn’t include insurance costs and does not apply to Defined Benefit accounts.

See the Fees and Other Costs Guide for information about the cap on administration fee and linking your accounts.

Investment fees and Indirect cost ratios (ICRs) are derived from costs incurred in 2018-2019, and are based on the information available to the Trustee for that financial year. They include estimates where actual costs are not available. They include performance fees (where relevant). They do not include an amount for Property Operating Costs which are estimated to be between 0.00% and 0.12%, nor Borrowing Costs which are estimated to be between 0.00% and 0.09% depending on the investment option. The actual costs for this and future financial years may be different. Updated estimates are posted on our website from time-to-time when updated information becomes available. Actual costs for each year are disclosed in our Annual Report.
