Update on Super
The management team is currently investigating the current structure of the Border Express Benefits Plan with a view to reducing fees and improving long-term returns.
It is hoped a decision will be made before the end of the third quarter 2014 and other options will be advised accordingly.
Existing Fund Members
Will be unaffected by most changes if you have been classed as 'Choice members'. In some cases, however, members prior to January 2014 will have their investment transferred to a MySuper investment option without your further input. This does two things, you will not be entitled to comprehensive superannuation advice and your investment options will revert to a 'basic' moderate return/risk investor profile. Longer-term, investing in these types of options have led to lower returns based on historical figures. You can 'opt-out' of this change if you don't want to change the current service and investment options arrangements.
For information on your options, please contact the fund advisors on 1300 668 600 for the cost a local call.
