Investment fees reduced!

I am delighted to inform our members that, effective 1 September 2017, the investment fees for some of our investment options have been reduced!

The changed investment fees from 1 September are as follows:

Option Old fee New fee
Cash 0.12% 0.05%
International Shares 0.98% 0.85%

We’ve been able to reduce these fees as a result of our increasing scale and from negotiating improved pricing from some of our managers.

In accordance with our profit-for-member philosophy, we review our investment fees at least annually to ensure they remain competitive and represent a value for money to our members.
