CPIplus is an innovative Hostplus account-based pension investment option that aims to deliver consistent returns over the long term.
CPIplus’ target return objective is designed to increase the consistency of investment returns while continuing to maintain the simplicity, flexibility, and liquidity of an account-based pension.
The returns of the CPIplus option are set for specified Return Periods (usually a year), based on a predetermined return formula, its returns, for any Return Period, are unaffected by the returns on the underlying investments of the option. This means the returns of CPIplus are not adversely impacted by any potential underperformance of its underlying investments (and similarly does not obtain the benefit of investment returns on underlying assets if these exceed the predetermined return).
