The Australian shares option in detail - for pension members
To maximise long-term investment returns.
To outperform the return of the S&P/ASX300 Accumulation index, net of fees, over rolling 10-year periods.
100% invested in Australian shares, and therefore carries the highest level of investment risk. Short-term fluctuations will occur, but the highest investment returns are expected over longer periods. This option is likely to produce a negative return approximately 6 years in every 20 years.
Will suit investors looking for the highest investment returns over the long-term, but who are prepared to accept very large fluctuations in investment performance.
Minimum suggested time frame for holding the investment is 10 years.
