Investment cost of product

This shows the cost of product if you were to invest $50,000 in our different investment options at the beginning of the year. The cost of product gives a summary of how ongoing annual fees and costs (including admin, investment, and transaction fees) can affect your super over a year. So, for every extra $50,000 you have in an investment option, the cost of product will increase.

Our annual fee caps could mean more money for you

To protect your super, we've lowered the cap on your administration fees and costs, so if you pay more than $875 a year, we'll refund the difference in July of the following financial year.

More about the admin fee cap rebate

  • You're only eligible if you still hold a QSuper Accumulation or Income account when we pay the rebate.
  • If you get a rebate of more than $25, we'll contact you with all the details, and it'll appear in Member Online and your annual statement.
  • It only applies to the administration fees and costs charged directly to your account.
  • If the value of your rebate is 5% or more of your balance, it will count towards your concessional contributions cap.

1. If your QSuper Accumulation account and QSuper Income account balances are less than $6,000 at the end of the financial year (30 June), certain administration and investment fees and costs charged to you are capped at 3% of the account balance. Any amount charged over that cap must be refunded. For more details, see the relevant QSuper product disclosure statement (PDS).
2. Please note as there are no unit prices for the Self Invest option, the administration fees and costs are calculated daily and deducted from your Self Invest transaction account monthly.
3. The investment fees and costs are estimates only, with the part that relates to costs the Trustee incurs based on costs for the year ended 30 June 2023. The actual amount you’ll be charged in the financial years after this will depend on the actual fees and costs the Trustee incurs in managing the investment option. You can find out more about investment fees and costs (including performance fees) in 'Additional explanation of fees and costs' in the relevant PDS.
