Sometimes it's best to get the help of a professional, so we've partnered with BT – Bank of Melbourne’s wealth expert and one of Australia’s leading investment managers. BT has been helping Australians protect, manage and grow their wealth since 1969.
We’ve designed an efficient and well-diversified portfolio that adjusts according to your age.
Your Lifestage Fund aims to achieve an appropriate level of risk and return by automatically adjusting the mix of assets throughout your life.
When you’re younger and have more time to withstand rises and falls in the value of your investment, your Lifestage Fund will be more growth oriented to target a higher return.
Over time the fund will gradually shift to a more conservative asset mix by reducing its allocation of growth assets – such as shares and property – and increasing its allocation of defensive assets – such as fixed interest and cash.
However if you prefer to have more control, you can choose your own investment mix once you have opened your super account.
This page does not take into account your personal objectives, financial situation or needs and so you should consider its appropriateness having regard to these factors before taking any step. You should obtain a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) for BT Super for Life and consider it before making any decision about it.
