Pension Fees

It is important to understand the impact of fees and costs on your investment. Therefore, we encourage you to read this information closely. Fees or charges may change from time to time, which may affect the value of your investment.

For full details of the fees and costs including definitions of each fee and cost, please refer to the Pension Product Disclosure Statement.

  • Administration fee: $4.50 per week, $234 per year
  • Investment fees and costs: Varies according to your chosen investment option(s)

Example of annual fees and costs

This table gives an example of how the fees and costs for the Hostplus Balanced investment option can affect your pension over a 1 year period. You should use this table to compare this product with other pension products.

Example – Hostplus Balanced option Balance of $50,000

Investment fees
0.70% For every $50,000 you have in the Balanced option you will be charged $350 each year

PLUS Administration fees
$234 ($4.50 per week) And, you will be charged $234 in administration fees regardless of your balance
PLUS Indirect costs for the Pension product 0.37% And, indirect investment costs of $185 each year will be deducted from your investment

Equals Cost of product
  If your balance was $50,000, then for that year you will be charged fees of $769 for the Pension product.
Note: Additional fees may apply. Please note the Hostplus Pension default investment option is the Cash option, not the Balanced option demonstrated above and these fees will vary from option to option. The inclusion of a Balanced option example is required by law.

Estimated Hostplus Superannuation Fund - 30 June 2020 Investment fees and Indirect costs

The below table sets out the Investment fees and Indirect costs.

The Indirect Cost Ratio and the Investment fee is based on the expenses incurred from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020. As a result, these figures are indicative only and may change in subsequent years depending on (for example) the performance of each option. These costs are deducted before the net investment return for each investment option are declared and applied to members’ accounts.

Please note; all fees and costs are inclusive of GST (unless otherwise stated) less any input tax credits and stamp duty (if applicable). The fund passes on any tax deduction on investment costs in the form of higher returns.

The performance based fee component comprises actual fees paid and estimates of fees to be paid for the financial year ending 30 June 2020.
