Return target

The target for the Balanced Growth option (after fees and taxes) is to deliver returns to members that exceed:

  1. the Consumer Price Index by 3% pa over rolling 10 year periods, and
  2. the median return in the SuperRatings survey of Balanced options over rolling 10 year periods.

Remember that future returns are not guaranteed.

Level of investment risk

The Balanced Growth option is most suited to members who want reasonable medium term returns and can put up with variations in the short term.

It is likely that this option will return 3-4 negative years in 20.

Statement of fees and other costs

For a member in the Division 5 Accumulation Scheme with a balance of $50,000, fees will be $325 per year (at 30/06/2023).

These fees are the investment management fees which are deducted from earnings before they are credited to your account.

Members pay no administration fees.
