1 Past performance is not an indicator of future performance. Option returns are calculated net of investment expenses and Fund taxes but are gross of account-based fees. Three, five, and seven-year returns are per annum. Due to rounding, excess return (measured to one-decimal place) may not equate to the difference between option return and median return. The SuperRatings data is based on the SuperRatings survey for the relevant period and does not take into account any subsequent revisions or corrections made by SuperRatings. At the time of preparation, UniSuper was not aware of any revisions or corrections which would be materially adverse to members.

2 Past performance is not an indicator of future performance. This graph shows the growth of $10,000 invested in this option over the period illustrated net of investment expenses and fund taxes but gross of account-based fees. No adjustments have been made to reflect the impact of inflation. Note that the graph uses interim daily crediting rates and does not reflect the final crediting rates which are used to calculate option performance in the table above.

3 The strategic asset allocation may change throughout your UniSuper membership. In particular, the trustee may alter the strategic asset allocation from time to time to suit prevailing market circumstances. Actual allocation will deviate from their targets, but are monitored so they are kept within a range approved by the Trustee.

4 These holdings may change from time to time. The above holdings are the outcome of various strategies applied by UniSuper and by a range of investment managers taking into account a variety of considerations, many of which are specific to UniSuper and superannuation funds in general. The above lists are published for informational purposes only and are not a recommendation or endorsement of any of the companies listed, for inclusion in your personal portfolio. Before selecting companies to invest in personally, you should seek professional financial advice that takes into account your personal circumstances and investment objectives.
