        This is the target range for holdings in each asset class within an option. The asset allocation may be re-balanced within these ranges to help achieve the option’s investment return objective.

        Investment fees and costs and transaction costs

        The investment and transaction fees and costs are estimates only. The actual fees and costs may vary from year to year. For more details, read our Fees and costs fact sheet (super members) or our Pension guide.

        Unit prices

        Normally, unit prices will be determined for each business day and posted to our investment option pages. We may defer or delay the determination of unit prices whenever we consider this to be in the best financial interests of members. A business day is generally considered to be Monday through Friday and excludes weekends and national public holidays.
