    How is FirstChoice Wholesale Pension structured?
    When you are invested in FirstChoice Wholesale Pension, your money is combined with other investors’ money in FirstChoice Wholesale Pension.

    Each FirstChoice Wholesale Pension investment option is a separate investment option within this superannuation fund. Each investment option invests in an underlying ‘pool’ which is managed according to the investment option’s objectives.

    In most cases, we are the responsible entity for the underlying pools, which are managed by each investment manager through a mandate arrangement.
