Things to know
- Investments can go up and down so you could end up with less money than you put in. That’s why it’s important to choose a fund that matches your attitude towards risk.
- Each fund is a portfolio investment entity (PIE) and the amount of tax you pay will be based on your prescribed investor rate (PIR).
- You’ll pay fees for investing in a managed fund. Fees are deducted from your investment and will reduce your returns.
