Fees and costs

As an industry super fund, we're serious about making your money work harder for you. This is why we keep our fees as low as possible, so you have more going into your super and towards your retirement. 

We're committed to delivering the best possible outcomes for our members by offering no establishment fees and low administration fees.

The Government has introduced some changes to the way super funds show and calculate their investment fees and costs. All costs incurred by the Fund when managing member investments have always been included in the returns. Indirect costs such as brokerage, buy-sell spreads and the cost of acquiring and selling of assets, which are incurred in managing the Funds assets, will now also be shown separately as a result of the regulatory changes. This will not impact the way we calculate your returns.

You can learn more about the fees and costs that apply to your AustSafe Super Pension account below.
