Key Features

How your super account works

FirstChoice Employer Super is an accumulation super fund. This means that each member has an account balance with money flowing in and out of the account.

When a contribution is made to your account, the contribution is used to purchase units in your chosen option. For example, if you make a contribution of $100 and the entry unit price for your chosen option is $1.00, then you will receive 100 units.

The value of your units may fluctuate due to the receipt of investment income and/or changes in the value of the underlying assets held in each option. The unit price you receive may also be affected by other factors, such as the payment of tax and other fund costs from the assets of the fund. Other costs that relate specifically to you, such as the payment of insurance premiums or an adviser service fee, may also be deducted from your account via the withdrawal of units. This means that your account balance can fluctuate on a daily basis depending on market movements, the costs of running the fund and any expenses that relate specifically to your account.

How is FirstChoice Employer Super structured?

When your contributions are invested in FirstChoice Employer Super, your money is combined with other investors' money in FirstChoice. Each FirstChoice investment option is a separate option within this superannuation fund. Each option invests in an underlying pool' which is managed according to the investment option's objectives. In most cases, we are the responsible entity for the underlying pools, which are managed by each investment manager through a mandate arrangement or, for FirstRate Saver, deposited with Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
