Our investment fund options

YouWealth has a choice of five funds to invest in, each offering a different level of potential return depending on the types of assets the funds are invested in, and the amount of risk you’re willing to take. 

Growth assets^ will typically experience larger movements in value compared to income assets^, so they have the potential to achieve higher investment returns over the longer term, however you need to be willing to accept more risk.

Fees you can expect to pay 

Management fee

The management fee is used to pay for the management of each fund’s assets, including underlying investment costs, the Supervisor’s fee and administration costs of the funds (such as audit fees, registry services and unit pricing and accounting services).

The fee is calculated as a percentage of the net asset value of each fund, and is already deducted from your investment, so returns will be reduced. You don’t need to pay this separately and it doesn’t appear as a transaction on your account.

Fund Management fee
Conservative Fund 0.78% p.a.
Moderate Fund 0.78% p.a.
Balanced Fund 0.78% p.a.
Balanced Growth Fund 0.78% p.a.
Growth Fund 0.78% p.a.
