Graph 2: Important information and assumptions - How higher fees can affect your client's account balance over time
This comparison is intended for illustrative purposes only. The projected amounts are shown in today's dollars, are hypothetical in nature and use the following assumptions and methodology to estimate the super balance over time based on total portfolio fees. The actual money a client has in their account may be very different to this estimate. Although the assumptions are considered reasonable by us, we provide no guarantee in relation to any projected values estimated. These projections assume a 7% annual investment rate of return, and do not reflect actual investment results and are not guarantees of future results. Fees will impact your client’s portfolio even during periods of negative market performance. It is important to note that there may be other fees that may impact your client’s superannuation balance such as adviser service fees deducted from your client’s account. Also, there may be (indirect) fees or costs that are taken into account in the calculation of investment returns. These fees are assumed to be taken into account in the investment return. The chart assumes no contributions, rollovers, other deposits or transactions and is not representative of any actual investment, product, or fee structure. No considerations have been made with respect to tax implications. We have used a flat fee of 0.90% p.a. to represent a hypothetical competitor retail index offering. This is approximately equivalent to the fee of the median super fund used in graph 1 at an account balance of $50,000.
