2We will review and may change the investment objective of an investment option from time to time. Objectives and benchmarks are tools to monitor performance. They are not a forecast of future returns or a prediction of the earnings on your investment.
3The Standard Risk Measure is based on industry guidance to allow members to compare investment options that are expected to deliver a similar number of negative annual returns over any 20 year period. The Standard Risk Measure is not a complete assessment of all forms of investment risk, for instance it does not detail what the size of a negative return could be or the potential for a positive return to be less than a member may require to meet their objectives. Further, it does not take into account the impact of administration fees and tax on the likelihood of a negative return. We assess the Standard Risk Measure for each of the investment options based on the option’s strategic asset allocation. Members should not rely exclusively on the Standard Risk Measure and should still ensure they are comfortable with the risks and potential losses associated with their chosen investment option/s.
