Super Funds


There are two prices related to a superannuation fund: the entry price and the exit price.
The exit price of a superannuation fund is normally determined by the fund manager, through a valuation of the net assets of the trust. The total value of the fund is divided by the number of units issued, so if the fund is worth $25m and there are 10m units, the fund exit price is $2.50. Notice, though, that some fund prices are fixed. Please review the investment statement for details of individual funds.
The entry price is usually the exit price plus any related commission, service or other transaction fee.
The prices of superannuation funds can be found at

  • The National Business Review,
  • The web sites of individual fund managers.
