How unit prices work

When your super is invested, its value is measured in terms of units that are purchased when your money goes in, and sold when money is withdrawn.

The unit price for each investment option is calculated at the end of each business day by dividing the net asset value of the investment option by the number of units on issue from that investment option.

The net asset value is the value of the assets in the investment option, less investment fees, expenses and tax.

It’s important to keep in mind that your super is a long-term investment. Negative dips in high risk investments often smooth out over the long term.
