The investment returns for superannuation are calculated after allowing for income tax on investment income, and investment management expenses but before the deduction of administration fees from members' account balances. Neither the investments nor payments of capital to members are guaranteed by the Trustee. It is important to remember that past performance is no indicator or guarantee of future performance. The value of investments can rise or fall. Past performance information is not available prior to the date an investment option was introduced.
