Fees & costs

As a fully independent, profit-to-members super fund, our fees are competitive; designed to meet the cost of fund operations, and not to maximise profit.

What does it mean?

Fully independent: it means we are not tied to any third parties, that can influence the direction we take, including the fees we charge. As an independent super fund, we have control over what we need to do to deliver the best outcomes for our members.

Profit-to-member: this means we are run for the benefit of our members only, we do not pay any profit to shareholders.

What are our fees?

The fees we charge can be divided into five main categories:

  • Administration fee: charged to run your super account.
  • Investment fee: charged for the professional management of the investments that make up your super.
  • Insurance fees: charged for insurance in your super if you have insurance with us.
  • Indirect cost ratio including Performance Based Fees (PBF): the ratio of indirect management costs to Prime Super’s total average net assets. This fee is not deducted directly from your account. Rather, they are estimated costs deducted from our overall investment earnings before we declare earnings rates that are credited to your account.
  • Other fees and costs: other fees like government taxes and charges, operational risk reserve, transactional and operational costs, etc.
