Is the approved investment menu a recommendation?
No. All responsibility for the investment decisions in the DIO rests with the member. The inclusion of a share, ETF, LIC or term deposit as an allowable investment within the DIO is not an endorsement or recommendation by the Trustee as to the quality or suitability of that investment. The rules for investing in the DIO should not be considered as a recommendation by the Trustee as to the manner in which members should approach their investments in the DIO. Investment decisions regarding the diversification of assets rest with the member.
The Trustee does not review any trades that members make in the DIO, and members should consider obtaining investment advice from a licensed financial adviser before investing in the DIO.
