Fees and costs

Keeping fees down

As a profit for member fund, any profits made from managing members' accounts flows back to the membership. We keep running costs as low as possible to maintain downward pressure on your fees

As an example, these are the fees we charge for the members invested in the default Equip MySuper option. Note that only the fees and costs associated with investments vary according to the option you're in. Administration fees are the same for all accumulation members:
