    How is FirstChoice Personal Super structured?
    When you are invested in FirstChoice Wholesale Personal Super, your money is combined with other investors’ money in FirstChoice Wholesale Personal Super. Each FirstChoice Wholesale Personal Super investment option is a separate investment option within this superannuation fund. Each investment option invests in an underlying ‘pool’ which is managed according to the investment option’s objectives.

    In most cases, we are the responsible entity for the underlying pools, which are managed by each investment manager through a mandate arrangement.

  • Insurance is a very important part of your financial planning, as it provides you and your family with financial security should something unexpected happen to you. Linking insurance to your superannuation can potentially be both cost and tax-effective.

    Insurance cover is provided through group policies issued to the trustee by The Colonial Mutual Life Assurance Society Limited (‘CommInsure’ or ‘the insurer’).


    Types of insurance cover

    FirstChoice Wholesale Personal Super offers a range of insurance cover options to suit your individual needs.

    These options are:

    • Death only cover
    • Death and Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) cover
    • Salary Continuance Insurance (SCI) cover.


    Insurance cover can be increased or reduced to meet your changing needs. It is therefore important that you regularly review your insurance arrangements

    We recommend that you speak to your financial adviser before applying for insurance cover.
     

  • There are a number of ways to keep the cash portion of your portfolio growing alongside your other investments. One of these ways is to use FirstRate deposit choices.

    The benefits of FirstRate deposit choices are:

    • Competitive interest rates
    • No ongoing management fees
    • You have the added reassurance that your money is on deposit with one of Australia’s leading financial institutions, Commonwealth Bank of Australia.

    These are FirstRate Wholesale Investment Deposits, FirstRate Wholesale Saver and FirstRate Wholesale Term Deposits.
