Disclaimers & assumptions


  • A model not a prediction. Results are only estimates, the actual amounts may be higher or lower. We cannot predict things that will affect your decision such as movements in investment markets.
  • This calculator does not take into account brokerage or other fees that may be charged when managed funds are bought or sold on an exchange.
  • This calculator is not intended to be your sole source of information when making a financial decision. You should consider whether you should get advice from a licensed financial adviser.


  • The amount invested is net of (after) any up-front establishment fees
  • Investment returns are reinvested
  • Earnings are displayed before tax. You will need to take into account that investment returns may be added to your taxable income and taxed at your marginal tax rate.
  • You will use the input fields to enter fee amounts and a long-term investment return that reflects the fund you are investing in. This information can be found in the PDS.
  • The projected balance does not take into account the effect of inflation
  • The 'effect of fees' amount indicates how much extra you could have had in your investment account if you had not paid any fees
  • No allowance has been made for the following fees and costs, should they apply to your fund: 
    • buy / sell spreads 
    • performance fees 
    • switching fees 
    • termination fees
