*‘Low cost’ refers to the low ongoing fees and costs (including investment related fees) of the Balanced low cost option compared with other superannuation investment options in the marketplace. Refer to the APRA Choice Heatmap here. The APRA Choice Heatmap is based on data as at 30 June 2021 and is subject to change. Please note that the Balanced low cost option appears in the Choice Heatmap under its former name ‘Sustainable Balanced’.
The Balanced low cost option invests in a mix of growth and defensive assets. This option invests in a diversified portfolio with a moderate exposure to cash and diversified bonds, and a higher exposure to equities, while providing a tilt away from carbon-intensive companies in Australia and internationally versus the applicable benchmark.
