You should consider the likely investment return, risk and your investment time frame when choosing which option to invest in. The value of investments may rise or fall. We don’t guarantee the investment performance, earnings or return of money you invest in Tasplan.
Past performance doesn’t necessarily indicate future returns.
Apart from those on our MySuper product dashboard, investment fees and tax have been taken out of the investment returns shown. We work out MySuper returns differently, in line with superannuation laws. There’s more information below.
Performance history starts from 1 December 2015 for Sustainable, Moderate, Australian shares, International shares and Fixed interest, 7 December 2016 for Tasplan OnTrack and 1 April 2017 for Property.
MySuper product dashboard
The returns quoted for the MySuper option, Tasplan OnTrack (Build, Sustain, Control and Maintain), are net returns. That is, less administration and investment fees, and tax. These are based on a 'representative member' with a $50,000 account balance and no activity charges throughout the year.
Return targets are based on a 10-year period, starting at the beginning of the current financial year. The statement of fees and costs includes investment fees and administration fees, but excludes buy-sell spreads, activity fees and insurance fees.
Level of investment risk
All investments have some risk. Different asset classes – for example, cash, bonds, property and shares – have different levels of risk. Each of Tasplan's investment options have different weightings towards these asset classes. So, each investment option has a different target investment return and a different likelihood of negative returns, depending on the underlying mix of assets.
The level of investment risk is our estimate of the likelihood of negative investment returns over 20 years. It’s not a complete assessment of all forms of investment risk. For example, it doesn’t say what the size of a negative return could be or the potential for a positive return to be less than what you need to meet your objectives. Also, it doesn’t take into account the impact of administration fees and tax on the likelihood of a negative return. You should make sure you’re comfortable with the risk and potential losses associated with your investment options.
We work out the risk measures in line with the guidelines in the Financial Services Council (FSC) Guidance on Standard Risk Measure Guidance Paper for Trustees dated July 2011. This rating is based on the fund’s asset allocation benchmarks at the date of the dashboard and doesn’t take into account future movements of these benchmarks.
