    How is FirstChoice Wholesale Investments structured?

    When you invest in FirstChoice Wholesale Investments, your money is combined with other investors’ money in a managed investment scheme. Each FirstChoice Wholesale investment option is a separate managed investment scheme except for FirstRate Wholesale products, which are deposit products of the Bank. We may invest directly or indirectly in other managed investment schemes managed by us to gain exposure and administrative efficiencies.
