Our trustee selects professional investment managers to manage the fund’s assets, which includes the super in your account.

Each investment manager is allocated a portion of the fund’s assets to manage based on its specialist skills, and we regularly monitor each manager’s activities and investment performance.

A list of the fund's current investment managers by asset class as at 28 November 2018 is provided below, together with the target allocation (%) of assets within that asset class for the fund's accumulation assets. Actual allocations may vary from the targeted strategic allocation from time to time. You can also find out more about the allocation of assets to each investment manager in our Annual Report each year.

Note: Each investment manager is a service provider to the fund. You do not have direct investments with these managers, nor do the managers enter into any direct relationships with you or provide financial services to you. The appointed investment managers may be altered at any time without prior notice to you.

*Investment managers with an asterisk are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Commonwealth Bank of Australia (ABN 48 123 123 124).
