4 Incorporated Material The information in this Incorporated Material Document forms part of the PDS issued on 11 November 2013 for ANZ Smart Choice Super and Pension. Its purpose is to give you more information and/or specific terms and conditions referred to in the PDS. You should consider all that information before making a decision about ANZ Smart Choice Super and Pension. 1. How super works Super is a tax effective long-term savings plan that enables you to save money for your retirement and is, in part, compulsory. While you are working, your employer is, in most cases, required to make contributions into your super account (known as compulsory super or Super Guarantee). Generally, you have the right to choose the super fund to which contributions, including employer contributions are made. You, or your spouse can also make voluntary contributions to your super account (subject to eligibility). If you do make a voluntary contribution, you may qualify for a Government contribution. The Federal Government provides tax concessions and incentives for you to contribute towards your super. However, there are limitations on contributions to, and withdrawals from, super. When you reach age 65, or preservation age (55 60 depending on your date of birth) and have retired, you can access your super savings as a lump sum or as a regular income stream through a pension account. If you have reached preservation age but have not retired, you can still receive a regular income stream from your super savings by commencing a transition to retirement pension. There may be other circumstances when you can access your super. Contributions into your super account Who can make contributions? The following table outlines the rules relating to who can make super contributions. Your age Under 65 At least 65 but under 70 At least 70 but under 75 Who can contribute You, your spouse and your employer. You, your spouse and your employer, provided you meet the work test *. Even if you do not meet the work test * your employer can still make mandated employer contributions # You and your employer, provided you meet the work test *. Even if you do not meet the work test * your employer can still make mandated employer contributions #. 75 and over Your employer may make mandated employer contributions #. * Work test means you were in gainful employment^ for at least 40 hours in a period of not more than 30 consecutive days in the financial year in which the contribution is made. # Mandated employer contributions are contributions which: reduces an employer s potential liability for the Superannuation Guarantee charge, or are a payment of a shortfall component, or are a contribution to satisfy the employer s obligation under an agreement certified, or award made, on or after 1 July 1986 by an industrial authority. Personal and employer contributions may be accepted on or before the 28th day of the month following that in which you turn 75 if you were in gainful employment^ for at least 40 hours during any 30 consecutive day period in the financial year that the contribution was made. ^ Gainful employment means being employed or self-employed for gain or reward in any business, trade, profession, vocation, calling, occupation or employment.
5 What type of contributions can be made into your super account? The table below provides details about the types of contributions that can be made. 4 5 Contribution type Employer Personal Government co-contribution Government low income superannuation contribution Spouse What is this contribution? Your employer may make employer contributions for your benefit. This includes employer additional and salary sacrifice contributions. Salary sacrifice is an arrangement between you and your employer whereby your employer makes a contribution to your ANZ Smart Choice Super account instead of making an equivalent gross payment as salary to you. An Employer Additional contribution occurs when your employer makes a contribution greater than Superannuation Guarantee which is not salary sacrifice. You may decide to make regular or lump sum contributions. Personal contributions are member contributions made by you or on your behalf, and include payments from: Foreign superannuation funds Eligible proceeds that relate to Capital Gains Tax (CGT) small business concessions, known as CGT cap contributions Payments that relate to structured settlements or court orders relating to personal injury Personal deductible contributions where you may be entitled to a tax deduction for your personal contributions. If you are eligible, any of your of non-concessional personal contributions you make, may attract a Government co-contribution (conditions apply, see below). You can contact the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) on if you think you may be eligible. A Government contribution of up to $500 is payable for persons with adjusted taxable income of up to $37,000 (non-indexed) (conditions apply). This contribution effectively offsets the tax (up to $500) on concessional contributions. Your spouse* may make a member contribution for your benefit. This must be made from after-tax money and will be treated as a non-concessional contribution. Your spouse may be eligible for a tax offset of up to $540 when making a spouse contribution. * Your spouse includes a person (same or different sex) who, although not legally married to you, lives with you on a genuine domestic basis in a relationship as a couple. It generally does not include a person who lives separately and apart from you on a permanent basis. Adjusted taxable income includes taxable income, reportable employer superannuation contributions, personal deductible contributions, adjusted fringe benefits, target foreign income, total net investment losses, Government tax free pensions/benefits less child maintenance support you have paid. Rollovers These include benefits transferred from another super or rollover fund and may be done as part of setting up a new super account or pension account, or when adding to an existing super account. Government co-contributions The Government co-contribution details for the 2013/2014 financial year are shown below: 2013/2014 Maximum co-contribution $500 Government matching rate* 50c Taper rate # 3.33c per $1 Lower income threshold $33,516 Upper income threshold $48,516 * The Government matching rate is the amount the Government will contribute per $1 of personal super contributions (not claimed as a tax deduction) up to your maximum entitlement. # The taper rate determines how much the maximum co-contribution is reduced for each $1 of total income that exceeds the lower income threshold. The maximum co-contribution completely phases out when total income reaches the upper income threshold. Your total income for the Government co-contribution is generally the total of your assessable income, reportable fringe benefits and reportable employer super contributions (generally your salary sacrifice super contributions), less amounts you are entitled to as a tax deduction as a result of carrying on a business. Example: John is eligible for the co-contribution. His total income for the 2013/2014 financial year is $43,516. The Government co-contribution is $167, i.e. $500 [($43,516 $33,516) x ] = $167. For John to receive his maximum Government co-contribution of $167, John has to make a minimum personal super contribution of $334 (maximum Government co-contribution entitlement/government matching rate = $167 / $0.50) in the 2013/2014 financial year.
6 Government low income superannuation contribution A Government contribution of up to $500 is payable for persons with adjustable taxable income* of up to $37,000 (non-indexed) (conditions apply). This contribution effectively offsets the tax (of up to $500) on concessional contributions. * Adjusted taxable income includes taxable income, reportable employer superannuation contributions, personal deductible contributions, adjusted fringe benefits, target foreign income, total net investment losses, Government tax free pensions/benefits less child maintenance support you have paid. How can you contribute extra to super? There are two main ways to make extra contributions to super, before tax or after tax. Voluntary (after-tax) contributions After-tax contributions include contributions you make from income that has already had income tax applied to it. Also, if your total income is less than the Government co-contribution upper income threshold for the 2013/2014 financial year, you may be eligible for a Government co-contribution. Note: Any contribution made by you or others, electronically, in cash or by cheque, where a contribution type is not specified will be provisionally classified as a Superannuation Guarantee contribution (employer contribution). To ensure that the correct treatment is applied to the contribution, it is important that the contribution type is recorded correctly. We will write to you advising of how the contribution has been processed and if this is not the correct contribution type for this money you must contact Customer Services on within 30 days to advise us of the correct contribution type. If you are under 60 The advantage of making after-tax contributions is that they are tax-free when you access your super on retirement. Investment earnings on after-tax contributions are subject to tax in super accounts only. Also, if your total income is less than the Government co-contribution upper income threshold for the applicable financial year, you may be eligible for a Government co-contribution. Salary sacrifice (before tax) contributions You can implement an agreement with your employer to forgo a portion of your salary in exchange for additional employer contributions (provided you don t breach your concessional contribution caps, your contributions are generally taxed at 15%). An additional 15% tax may apply to some higher income earners. Salary sacrificing may tax effectively increase retirement savings. Contributions for a prior period The Trustee may accept super contributions on your behalf if the Trustee is satisfied that the contribution relates to a period during which the Fund may have accepted the contribution, even though the contribution is actually made after that period. Do limits apply to how much you can contribute to your super? The Federal Government has placed a cap on concessional (generally taxable) and non-concessional (after-tax) contributions. You should monitor contributions made into your account and all other super funds, as there are taxation consequences for exceeding the caps. The contributions caps and tax rates for the financial year 2013/2014 are shown in the table below: Contribution types Exemptions to contribution caps 2013/2014 financial year Concessional cap* Employer contributions (includes both compulsory super guarantee and salary sacrifice contributions) Personal Contributions for which a tax deduction is allowed. Taxable portion of the vested amount of a foreign super fund transfer Untaxed element of a rollover super benefit. $25,000* if you are under 60 # $35,000 if you are 60 and over # * From the 2014/2015 financial year onwards, individuals aged 50 years and over by the end of the relevant financial year will also be able to take advantage of the concessional cap of $35,000. Non-concessional cap Personal contributions for which no tax deduction has been allowed Spouse contributions Excess concessional contributions that are not effectively refunded Transfer from foreign superannuation funds (excluding any taxable amounts). Government contributions Rollover super benefits CGT cap contributions up to a lifetime limit of $1,315,000 (contributions linked to the application of the small business CGT concessions) Personal injury contributions (contributions linked to the payments from structured settlements, workers compensation or court orders relating to personal injury). $150,000 or $450,000 if you apply the bring forward option, please refer to the Other information section of this table.
7 Tax on amounts over the cap Concessional cap* Excess concessional contributions amount included in your assessable income and taxed at your marginal tax rate less a tax offset equal to 15% of the excess contributions (plus any interest charges). Non-concessional cap 46.5%^ 6 7 Other information Any concessional contributions in excess of the cap that are not effectively refunded will also count towards the non-concessional contributions cap. The non-concessional contributions cap is six times the lower concessional contributions cap (based on $25,000). If you are under age 65 at any time during the financial year, you can bring forward the next two years non-concessional contributions caps (providing you haven t already done so in the two previous financial years). The cap for 2013/2014 financial year for brought forward amounts is $450,000. This effectively creates a three-year block period where total non-concessional contributions cannot exceed three times the first financial year s nonconcessional contributions cap. * The concessional contributions cap is indexed to Average Weekly Ordinary Time Earnings (AWOTE) but will only increase in $5,000 increments. The Government has enacted legislation to freeze the cap for 2013/2014. # As at 30 June ^ This will increase by 0.5% from 1 July For further information on the contribution caps, how they apply and the taxation consequences of exceeding the contribution caps, please refer to page 30 of this guide for further details. Can you contribute for your spouse? You can make a contribution on behalf of your spouse. If they have not already done so, your spouse will need to complete an ANZ Smart Choice Super application to open an account. It s also easy for your spouse to contribute to your account. What payment options are available for contributions?

Some federal and state public sector employees are also excluded from choosing a super fund. If you are unsure about your eligibility to choose a super fund, please contact Customer Services. Accessing your super Accessing super benefits There are rules in place to restrict when your super can be accessed, to help ensure that your super savings are used for your retirement. Your super is categorised into preserved and non-preserved (restricted and unrestricted) amounts, which impact when you can access your super. All contributions and any earnings on your super after 1 July 1999 are treated as preserved. Your Annual Statement will show how much super you have in each category. Access to your super savings depends on the preservation status of your benefits (the following does not apply to temporary residents): Unrestricted non-preserved These amounts may be accessed at any time. Restricted non-preserved These amounts may be accessed on ceasing gainful employment with a contributing employer or when preserved benefits are payable. Preserved These amounts can only be accessed on meeting a condition of release. Conditions of release include: reaching your preservation age and you have permanently retired* reaching age 60 and subsequently ceasing a gainful employment arrangement reaching age 65, whether you have retired or not permanent incapacity terminal medical condition severe financial hardship (limits apply) specified compassionate grounds (limits apply) reaching preservation age (payment restricted to a transition to retirement pension). death temporary incapacity # * Permanently retired means ceasing an arrangement of gainful employment and never intending to be gainfully employed for ten or more hours weekly. Gainful employment means being employed or self-employed for gain or reward in any business, trade, profession, vocation, calling, occupation or employment. Permanent incapacity means the Trustee must be reasonably satisfied that you are unlikely, because of ill health (whether physical or mental) to engage in gainful employment for which you are reasonably qualified by education, training or experience. Terminal medical condition means that the following circumstances exist: a. two registered medical practitioners have certified, jointly or separately, that the person suffers from an illness, or has incurred an injury, that is likely to result in the death of the person within a certification period that ends not more than 12 months after the date of the certification b. at least one of the registered medical practitioners is a specialist practicing in an area related to the illness or injury suffered by the person c. or each of the certificates, the certification period has not ended. # Temporary incapacity means the Trustee must be reasonably satisfied that a member has, because of ill-health (whether physical or mental), temporarily ceased gainful employment but the condition does not constitute permanent incapacity (conditions apply).
9 Preservation age Your preservation age depends on your date of birth. You can use the following table to work out your preservation age. Date of birth Preservation age Before 1 July If a withdrawal brings your account balance below $1,000, we reserve the right to pay your account balance either to you or the Eligible Rollover Fund (ERF) as detailed on page 52. Any withdrawal amount paid to you must be deposited into your nominated ANZ bank account. Please note, that a terminal medical condition payment to another super or pension fund is not a rollover super benefit and is assessed against the relevant contributions caps. For further information please contact Customer Services. 8 9 Between 1 July 1960 and 30 June Between 1 July 1961 and 30 June Between 1 July 1962 and 30 June Between 1 July 1963 and 30 June After 30 June Temporary residents You are a temporary resident if you are not an Australian citizen, New Zealand citizen, permanent resident or holder of a Subclass 405 [Investor Retirement] or Subclass 410 [Retirement] visa. Temporary residents will only be able to access preserved benefits on the following grounds (unless they have satisfied a condition of release prior to 1 April 2009): Death Terminal medical condition Permanent incapacity Departing Australia Super Payment (DASP) Temporary incapacity. If you are a temporary resident, six months after you have departed Australia and your temporary resident visa has ceased to be in effect, your super benefits may be classified as unclaimed monies and be transferred to the ATO. You can claim these benefits back from the ATO at any time. A DASP cannot be paid as an income stream. Making withdrawals If you have reached age 65 or your preservation age, or have met a condition of release you may be eligible to start an ANZ Smart Choice Pension or have the proceeds paid directly to your nominated ANZ bank account or a combination of these. Prior to withdrawing you will need to consider: The conditions surrounding how you can access your benefits on page 8 of this guide Any applicable fees or tax implications. Can you still work and access your super? If you have reached your preservation age and you do not meet any of the other relevant conditions of release listed on the previous page of this guide, you may be able to access your super under the transition to retirement (TTR) rules. These rules are designed to provide more flexibility to members who continue to work past their preservation age but wish to access their super. TTR rules allow these members to access their super in the form of an income stream (also referred to as a non-commutable pension ), which cannot be cashed as a lump sum until a relevant condition of release is satisfied (eg permanent retirement or permanent incapacity) or if it contains a non-preserved benefit. To access your super under the TTR rules you can open an ANZ Smart Choice Transition to Retirement account. How does ANZ Smart Choice Pension work? When you ve reached your preservation age and have retired you can transfer your balance to an ANZ Smart Choice Pension account and start receiving an income stream. ANZ Smart Choice Pension offers two types of pension accounts, these are: ANZ Smart Choice Pension account ANZ Smart Choice Transition to Retirement account ANZ Smart Choice Pension is generally available to those who have reached their preservation age and have retired. Once an account has been established there are no restrictions on pension payments or access to lump sum payments (apart from the minimum annual pension payment requirement). Alternatively, if you have reached preservation age and are still working, you can open an ANZ Smart Choice Transition to Retirement account, which provides you with an income stream. You can continue to contribute to a super account whilst receiving your income stream, which may provide you with a tax saving. A transition to retirement pension has restrictions on the size of pension payments and access to lump sums. You are not able to make additional investments into your ANZ Smart Choice Pension once it commences. If you wish to make additional investments please contact Customer Services who will assist you.
10 You can open an ANZ Smart Choice Pension account or an ANZ Smart Choice Transition to Retirement account by visiting anz.com/smartchoice, at selected ANZ branches, or by contacting Customer Services. How do I withdraw? ANZ Smart Choice Pension gives you the ability to choose how much and how often you would like your income payments made, subject to a minimum limit set by the Federal Government. For one-off pension withdrawals, the effective date of the withdrawal will be the date your valid request is received through Customer Services. Withdrawals are usually processed within five business days after we receive your request. However, it is possible a greater period of time may be necessary to make payments. One-off withdrawals cannot be processed in the five business days before your next scheduled pension payment is due. All withdrawals will be deposited into your nominated ANZ bank account. If your ANZ Smart Choice Pension account balance falls below $1,000, we reserve the right to pay your account balance to your nominated ANZ bank account. If you withdraw a lump sum, we may be required to pay your minimum pension payment (pro-rated) for the current year. Any additional payment that is required to meet the minimum pension amount will be processed before the withdrawal. If you have opened a transition to retirement pension, withdrawal restrictions may apply, these restrictions are lifted when you reach age 65 and/or you meet certain conditions of release. You can choose which preservation components to transfer from your super account when commencing a transition to retirement pension. Any income stream from your transition to retirement pension will be drawn from your unrestricted non-preserved component first, then from your restricted non-preserved and finally your preserved. This could have an effect on your ability to access lump sum withdrawals in the future. The following restrictions apply to withdrawing part or all of your transition to retirement pension account balance as a lump sum. What pension payment can I receive each year? Minimum pension payment ANZ Smart Choice Pension gives you the flexibility to choose how much you would like your pension payment to be, subject to a minimum limit required by law. The minimum annual pension payment is first calculated when you start your pension and is recalculated each year on 1 July using your account balance and age at that date. We will communicate to you at the beginning of each new financial year and advise you of your minimum pension payment for that year. If you choose to receive the minimum annual pension payment, we will make pension payments from 1 July at the new minimum level. If in the previous financial year you selected an annual pension payment which is higher than the new minimum, your pension payments will remain unchanged from that paid in the previous financial year (subject to the maximum pension payment threshold). Where your pension account commences part way through a year, your minimum and any annual amount you nominate will be pro-rated for the number of days remaining in that financial year unless you have specifically requested to withdraw the maximum annual pension rate of 10% (the maximum is only applicable to Transition to Retirement accounts). We are required to make at least one pension payment each financial year unless your pension commences on or after 1 June in that financial year. In this case, the first payment may be made after that financial year has ended but must be made before the next financial year ends. You may estimate your own minimum annual pension payment by multiplying your account balance on 1 July by the appropriate minimum payment percentage for your age (see table below). Your minimum pension payment is rounded to the nearest $10. Your age at 1 July Minimum payment percentages Under 65 4% 65 to 74 5% 75 to 79 6% Types of benefits Unrestricted nonpreserved benefits When you can withdraw this benefit as a lump sum Any time 80 to 84 7% 85 to 89 9% 90 to 94 11% 95 or older 14% Preserved benefits Restricted non-preserved benefits When you satisfy a condition of release When you satisfy a condition of release Please refer to page 8 of this guide for the conditions of release. If your pension has commenced part way through the financial year and prior to 1 June in that financial year, you may estimate your minimum annual pension payment by multiplying your account balance at commencement by your minimum percentage for your age (see table above, however use your age at commencement instead of your age at 1 July). This amount is then pro-rated for the number of days remaining in the financial year from the commencement of the pension.
11 Example: For minimum payment percentages 2013/2014 As at 1 July 2013, Elizabeth is 65 and has an investment account balance of $260,000. Elizabeth would have the following minimum pension payment. Minimum: $260,000 x 5% = $13,000 Elizabeth may select any annual pension payment amount of $13,000 or above. Note: This example is illustrative only and should not be regarded as a forecast for your investment, nor regarded as indicative of future performance Maximum pension payment The only maximum applied to annual pension payments is from the ANZ Smart Choice Transition to Retirement pension where a maximum annual pension payment equal to 10% of the account balance will apply each year. The maximum pension income payment is first calculated when you start your pension and is recalculated each year on 1 July using your account balance at that date. If commenced part way through the financial year, the maximum pension payment is not pro-rated. When and how can I receive my pension? You can have your pension paid monthly, quarterly, half yearly or annually on any business day of the week. Pension payments will be deposited into your nominated ANZ bank account. Unless otherwise requested, pension payments will be drawn down proportionally from your account in line with your investment strategy. You can view and manage your investment mix on ANZ Internet Banking. Prior to the end of the financial year we will determine if there is a shortfall between the mandatory minimum pension requirement and your actual pension payments, any shortfall will be deposited prior to 30 June into your nominated ANZ bank account. If you decide to change the amount you wish to draw down we will issue you with a new Centrelink schedule. Nominating a beneficiary Once you have opened your ANZ Smart Choice Super and/or Pension account, you should decide who should receive your money (including any Death insurance benefit, if payable) in the event of your death. With ANZ Smart Choice Super and Pension, you have the ability to give us a non-lapsing death benefit nomination. What is a Non-lapsing death benefit nomination? This is the nomination of a beneficiary(ies) which if satisfying all legal requirements, will not expire by the passage of time and the Trustee is required to pay your money to your nominated beneficiary(ies) in such a proportion as specified by you. This is subject to the nominated beneficiary(ies) being either a dependant at the time of your death or your estate and your non-lapsing death benefit nomination being current at the time of your death. However, it will become invalid if you marry, enter into a de facto or like relationship with a person of either gender or become separated on a permanent basis from your spouse or partner. Who can be nominated as a beneficiary? You can nominate one or more beneficiary(ies) to receive your death benefit in the event of your death. All beneficiaries must be either a dependant as defined by superannuation law or your estate. You cannot nominate persons as beneficiaries who do not fall into one of the above categories. Death benefits paid to dependants will be paid as a lump sum or an income stream (conditions apply) or a combination of both. Your Annual Statement will provide details of current nominations you have made. Who can be a dependant? A dependant as defined by superannuation law includes: Your spouse, including another person (whether of the same sex or a different sex) who, although not legally married to you, lives with you on a genuine domestic basis in a relationship as a couple Your children (including an adopted child, a step-child or an ex-nuptial child, a child of your spouse), or someone who is considered your child (under family law) Any other person who is financially dependent on you at the time of your death Any other person with whom you have an interdependency relationship (see following). Two people (whether or not related by family) have an interdependency relationship if: They have a close personal relationship; and They live together; and One or each of them provides the other with financial support; and One or each of them provides the other with domestic support and personal care. An interdependency relationship can also exist where two people have a close personal relationship but do not meet the other criteria above because either or both of them suffer from a physical, intellectual or psychiatric disability or are temporarily living apart. The rules around when pensions can be paid to a child, including when a child must commute a pension into a lump sum, are complex and you should seek independent professional advice on this matter.
12 How do I nominate a beneficiary?

13 3. Risks of super What risks should I be aware of? The importance of risk assessment Risk and return go hand-in-hand. When investing, you need to consider the opportunities and consequent risks associated with each investment to create an investment mix that suits your needs. Generally speaking, the higher the potential return from an investment, the higher the risk associated with it. The more volatile investment options, such as shares, potentially offer greater returns and high growth, but generally carry a higher risk than investing in cash or fixed interest options. The less volatile investment options, such as cash, generally provide more secure and stable returns because your capital is less susceptible to risk and you may receive interest payments. However, the returns on these investments are not guaranteed (just as the returns from other types of investments are not guaranteed). The returns may also not keep pace with inflation. Investors should consider the level of risk involved with a particular investment and whether the potential returns justify those risks, before investing. All the ANZ Smart Choice Super and Pension investment options are subject to some or all of the risks described below. The risk level of different investments Investment risk refers to the chance of losing money on a particular investment. If negative returns are generated by an investment option the unit price of that option will go down. While this reduces the value of your investment in the option, it is not an actual loss until you decide to switch or withdraw from that option. If you choose to switch or withdraw, at that particular point in time the loss will be realised. The following types of risk can impact your investment Interest rate risk: the possibility that the value of a fixed income investment, such as a Government or corporate bond, will decrease because of an increase in interest rates. Inflation (purchasing power) risk: the buying power of your capital or interest income is decreased by inflation. Business or financial or credit risk: the possibility that an individual business entity upon which an investment is made may fail due to factors such as bad management, or changes in consumer demand or market share. Liquidity risk: the risk that an investment may not be able to be sold to realise enough cash to pay a withdrawal. Point-in-time risk: the risk that negative returns in the years immediately preceding retirement may have a lasting negative impact on the amount of your future withdrawals from the fund. Longevity risk: the risk that you may outlive your retirement assets. In addition, lower than expected returns can result as a consequence of investing in a single asset class, however this can be reduced through diversification. Diversification can involve selecting a range of investment options that cover a range of asset classes. Through diversification, below-average performance by one asset class may be potentially compensated for by above-average performance by another asset class. Changing the rules that govern an investment option (e.g. notice periods or withdrawal features) In some cases we can make these changes without prior notice to you. Any changes will be considered in light of the potential negative or positive impact on all investors. We will notify you via regular investor communications, ANZ Internet Banking or anz.com/smartchoice as soon as practicable after any changes occur. Risks associated with particular investment strategies International investing While investing internationally can provide more opportunities and greater diversification than investing in Australia alone, it also carries additional risk. For example, fluctuating currencies can increase or decrease the return from an investment. Also, many overseas countries have different financial industry regulations to what we have in Australia. When an investment option invests overseas it can make a profit or a loss on the investment and a profit or a loss on currency movements. For instance, an investment in US dollars, when the value of that currency falls, will involve a loss when the money is converted back into Australian dollars. If the investment itself has also made a loss, the losses will be compounded. However, it is also possible for profits to be compounded in the opposite scenario. Investment managers may reduce the risk of adverse currency movements by hedging against falls in the currency in which an investment is made. In effect, investment managers may fix the exchange rate for the duration of the investment so that there is protection against foreign currency values declining Political or social risk: the possibility that changes in Government policy may adversely affect an investment or, in the case of an overseas investment, the chance of a political upheaval such as an uprising or revolution. Currency risk: the possibility that changes in relative currency values will affect import or export-driven companies, or that an option may be faced with an unfavourable exchange rate when a foreign investment is sold. Currency risk Investment managers may also actively manage currencies, which means they take a view on the likely movement of currencies and purchase or sell them accordingly. This is riskier, but it can be more profitable. This strategy carries significant risk because the investment manager s view can be wrong and, as a result, they can make a loss on the movement in currency values.
14 Currency risk can be reduced or mitigated if the investment manager places a stop/loss order on their transaction. If an investment manager believes a currency will increase in price, they will buy the currency and set a lower price at which they will automatically sell the currency and take a loss on the transaction. This is a form of insurance against the currency falling significantly lower in price. The risk of placing a stop/loss order is that the investment manager may not be able to execute it at the price they would like to. This may happen if the price of the currency falls dramatically in a short period of time. Derivatives A derivative is a financial product that is derived from another financial product. For example, an option over shares is a derivative because its price or value is derived from the shares themselves. Other derivatives include futures and warrants. Investment managers may use derivatives to gain exposure to investment markets or to protect against changes in the values of financial products, other assets, interest rates or currencies. Risks associated with using derivatives include: Variability of the market value: derivatives market values can fluctuate significantly and, as a result, potential gains and losses can be magnified compared with investments that do not use derivatives. Potential illiquidity: the value of derivatives may not move in the same direction as the value of the underlying financial product, which may result in an investment loss. In addition, the derivative may not experience the same levels of liquidity, resulting in illiquidity, meaning it may not be easily converted into cash. Counterparty risk: the other party in a derivative transaction may not be able to meet its financial obligations. Investment managers endeavour to manage counterparty risk through the following processes: Reviewing overall counterparty risk, the nature of lending principles and arrangements, the availability and adequacy of security where relevant. Applying stringent counterparty risk management policies and prudent valuation policies. Managing and/or limiting specific counterparty risk to particular counterparties, sectors and geographic locations. Implementing a process of continuous monitoring of counterparties to ensure that they can continue to meet their obligations. Inflation Inflation is usually measured by the movement of the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which measures the change in the prices of goods and service in an economy. Inflation reduces an investment option s purchasing power over time because, as the cost of goods and service increases, the relative value of the Australian dollar declines. It is important to factor inflation into your investment choices because some investments will decline in real value while others will keep pace with inflation or exceed it. Generally speaking, cash options and fixed interest options are most at risk of not keeping pace with inflation. Liquidity risk Liquidity risk means that sufficient assets cannot reasonably be expected to be realised and converted into cash to satisfy a withdrawal request of the option within the period specified in the option s constitution. Assets such as shares, listed property securities, fixed interest and cash are generally considered to be liquid because they are actively traded on markets where they can more easily be sold or converted into cash at their full value. Private and unlisted assets such as direct property, leveraged leases and infrastructure are generally considered to be less liquid. They are not generally traded on active markets and, as such, can take longer to convert into cash. During abnormal or extreme market conditions some normally liquid assets may become illiquid, restricting the ability to sell them and to make withdrawal payments or to process switches for investors. In certain circumstances, we may suspend or otherwise restrict withdrawals from an investment option (albeit that the option may not technically be illiquid ) meaning that the payment of withdrawal proceeds may be significantly delayed or not made at all. We may also terminate certain investment options and in these circumstances may delay the realisation of the option s assets meaning that payment of your share of the proceeds will also be delayed. Liquidity risk may be reduced by investing in options that invest only in liquid assets. Another way of reducing liquidity risk is to diversify across a range of investment options. Securities lending Some investment managers may engage in the lending of securities to third parties for a fee. The lending is done through an appointed custodian who receives the fee and passes it on to the investment manager. This fee will be reflected in the unit price of the option as revenue for that option. One risk of securities lending is that the borrower or custodian is not able to return equivalent securities, in which case the investment option could experience delays in recovering assets, and in some cases may incur a capital loss. The risk of securities lending may be mitigated by ensuring the investment options lend to approved borrowers only, and by requiring the borrowers to provide sufficient collateral.
15 Another risk in securities lending is if the returns of the collateral pool are insufficient to cover direct and indirect costs of the transactions. In this case, the fee may become negative and be reflected in a decline of the unit value of the investment option Changes in legislation Investment options may be affected by changes in legislation, particularly in relation to taxation laws. These changes may be either favourable or unfavourable, and it is generally not possible to mitigate the impact of unfavourable events. When changes occur, you will be notified via regular investor communications, ANZ Internet Banking or anz.com/smartchoice as soon as practicable after any changes occur. Changes to investment options We regularly monitor the investment options offered through ANZ Smart Choice Super and Pension. To maintain the quality and diversity of the investment options, we may make changes at any time including: Adding, closing or terminating an investment option, Removing, replacing or adding an investment manager, Changing an investment option s objective, investment strategy (including the benchmark), asset allocation, neutral position and range, currency strategy and the number of asset classes; and Changing the rules that govern an investment option (e.g. changing fees, notice periods or withdrawal features). In some cases these changes are made without prior notice to investors, although any changes are considered in light of the potential positive or negative impact on all investors. The investment environment can change rapidly and you need to be aware that you may not have the most up-to-date information available at your fingertips when you make an investment decision. Material events can take place that you are not aware of at the time of investing. We will notify you via regular investor communications, ANZ Internet Banking or anz.com/smartchoice as soon as practicable after any changes occur.
16 4. How we invest your money Leave your investment decisions to us, with a Lifestage investment, or choose your own investment mix. The choice is yours. Lifestage investments Unlike many other super funds, we don t believe that one investment option suits everyone. While others offer default balanced investment options irrespective of your stage in life, ANZ Smart Choice Super prefers a much smarter approach. When you re young, it could be years before you start even thinking about retirement. So why not use this time to your advantage? Early on, your lifestage investment option invests mainly in growth assets such as shares. These are designed to provide potential higher returns, with plenty of time to ride out any dips in markets. As you approach retirement, we automatically adjust the mix with a higher allocation to less volatile investments, like cash and fixed interest bonds. This is the time when you have the most to lose, so it makes sense to protect it. Choosing lifestage investing means we do the work for you, so you can relax knowing your money is working hard for you until the day you retire, and beyond. Lifestage investment options Your money will be invested in the option corresponding to the decade in which you were born. For ANZ Smart Choice Super: 1940s 1970s 1950s 1980s 1960s 1990s For ANZ Smart Choice Pension: 1940s 1950s The following diagram illustrates the Lifestage investment option investment mix changing over your life. Glide Path 100 Defensive assets (%) Growth assets Defensive assets Age 25 Age 45 Age 70 Defensive assets Growth assets Choose your own investment mix Alternatively, you can take a more active role in your investment decisions. Choose from our range of carefully selected, low cost options designed to suit different levels of risk and potential returns. Choose your own investment mix Multi-asset class options: Conservative Moderate Growth Single-asset class options: Cash Global Fixed Interest Global Property Australian Equities International Equities You can easily track, compare and change your investments at any time with ANZ Internet Banking. You can choose to invest in as many or as few options as you like. All you need to do when you apply is specify the percentage that you would like to invest in each investment option. You can view and manage your investment mix on ANZ Internet Banking. If you would like to leave the investment decisions to us, you can choose the lifestage investment option aligned to the decade in which you were born. It is important to note that you are not able to invest into a combination of lifestage and choose your own mix investments (except for Cash).
17 Active asset allocation An active asset allocation process is utilised for investment options to increase or decrease your exposure to relevant asset classes within permitted ranges. This process is designed to optimise your investment performance by adjusting your investment performance to markets/asset classes which we believe will perform strongly or poorly in the future Environmental, social and ethical considerations Labour standards, environmental, social or ethical considerations are not taken into account when selecting, retaining or realising investments relating to ANZ Smart Choice Super and Pension.
18 How to read an investment option profile Information about each investment option is detailed in an investment option profile. The information below is a guide to understanding the information in each profile. Description A brief description of the investment option and who it may be suitable for. Asset allocation The asset allocation displays the type of assets classes (and proportions) the investment option invests in. The benchmark is the neutral allocation for each asset class. The range indicates the anticipated minimum and maximum allowable allocations for each asset class. The investment manager may vary the investment option s asset allocation within the intended ranges in order to position the investment option to benefit from prevailing market conditions. Under certain circumstances, the asset allocation for a particular asset class may move outside its range. In some cases, an investment option may have a benchmark and/or a range, or neither. Asset allocation benchmarks and ranges may be altered without prior notice to you when the change does not materially alter the risk profile of the investment option. Investment return objective The investment return objective identifies what return the investment options aims to achieve. This is often stated in relation to a relevant index. Minimum time horizon As a guide only, each investment option has a suggested minimum time horizon. This is the minimum period of time you should consider holding your investment in a particular investment option. Holding an investment for the suggested time does not guarantee a positive return, but it may make it more likely. However, if after the suggested minimum time horizon investment markets we believe will perform poorly, the investment may need to be held for a longer period to avoid a negative return. Standard Risk Measure Each investment option will have a risk level attached to it. The risk level indicates historically the number of negative annual returns over any twenty (20) year period. The seven risk levels are: Risk band Risk label Estimated number of negative annual returns over any twenty (20) year period 1 Very low Less than Low 0.5 to less than 1 3 Low to medium 1 to less than 2 4 Medium 2 to less than 3 5 Medium to high 3 to less than 4 6 High 4 to less than 6 7 Very high 6 or greater The Standard Risk Measure is based on industry guidance to allow investors to compare investment options that are expected to deliver a similar number of negative annual returns over a twenty (20) year period. The Standard Risk Measure is not a complete assessment of all forms of investment risk. For instance, it does not detail the potential size of a negative return or that the potential for a positive return may still be less than an investor may require in order to meet their obligations. Further, it does not take into account the impact of administration fees and tax on the likelihood of a negative return. Investors should still ensure they are comfortable with the risks and potential losses associated with their chosen investment option/s. Investment strategy The investment strategy describes how the investment option aims to achieve its objective. An investment strategy usually involves a description of the relevant asset classes and an outline of the investment process, or combination of processes that will be used to manage the investment option. Commencement date This is the date that the investment option commenced within ANZ Smart Choice Super and Pension.
