The International Shares investment option is focused on delivering the best net return in a single sector from investing in a portfolio of all growth assets (typically companies listed on international securities exchanges, including developed and emerging markets, and may include some unlisted assets) and has medium diversification.
* Investment costs are based on estimated and actual information from the previous financial 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 growth assets, this single sector investment option is designed for members with a medium to long-term investment timeframe, who are seeking strong long-term returns, have a high tolerance of negative returns and can accept the impacts of foreign currency movements.
