As responsible entity of the Trust and the underlying funds in which the Trust invests, OnePath Funds Management monitors and regularly reviews the performance of the underlying investment managers we appoint to manage the Trust's underlying assets.

As part of this regular review, OnePath Funds Management may add or remove one or more underlying investment manager(s) at any time without prior notice. We will publish updated information about the underlying investment managers at onepath.com.au/superandinvestment/investment-funds.aspx > OptiMix Multi-Manager map.
