Find out how we calculate and publish our unit prices
When you add money to your super, you’re actually buying a number of units in our investment options.
you make a withdrawal, you sell a number of units in that investment option.
The unit prices go up and down each day, in much the same way that shares do, based on
movements in the market
value. As the unit price changes, so does the overall value of your investment.
To work out how much your super is worth, multiply the number of units you have in an investment option by
daily unit price.
Number of units x Daily unit price = Value of your super
We take out any relevant fees, costs, and taxes from the daily unit price before publishing it, so you
need to account for that in your calculation.
For Accumulation and Income accounts, you can check how many units you have in each investment option and
current value of your super in our app or Member Online.
For our other products such as Lifetime Pension and Defined Benefit accounts, you aren't
invested in units, but
you can see details about your super in Member Online.
We calculate unit prices every Brisbane working day, and we publish the value of each investment option at
close of global markets from 2 business days earlier. This gives us time to collate data from international
markets and reflect it in our fund valuations.
Here's an example of how our timeframes work.
Day 1: Valuation date
We value assets for each investment option, based on prices when markets close.
Day 2: Calculation date
6.00am - 8.00am Brisbane time: International markets close.
8.00am - 5.00pm Brisbane time: We value our assets in all markets around the world, based on the Day 1
closing prices and unit prices.
Day 3: Effective date
9.00am Brisbane time: We publish our unit prices.1
