The Cash investment option is focused on a single sector from investing in a portfolio of all defensive assets (could include deposits in a bank, investments in short-term money markets and other similar investments) and has low diversification.
* Investment costs are based on estimated and actual information from the previous year. The costs payable in future years may be higher or lower. Administration and other fees apply. For a full breakdown of fees and costs, see our fees and costs page or Section 6 of the Member Guide.
^ Investment return over 10 years to 31 October 2023, net of investment fees and costs. Administration and other costs apply. Returns won’t display for options younger than 10 years. See the investment returns page for returns over all available periods.
With all defensive assets, this single sector investment option is designed for members with a short-term investment timeframe, who are seeking stable returns and have a very low tolerance of negative returns.
