Unit Prices

Unit prices are usually calculated daily to reflect changes in accumulated income and market values. Each Fund’s assets are revalued in accordance with its constitution. The prices shown above may differ from the actual unit price if you were applying for or redeeming an investment. Your actual unit price will be confirmed following any transactions on your investments.

For more information on unit pricing, please refer to Our Policies.


Distributions are the profit earned by the Fund which is then paid to investors. Distributions are expressed as cents per unit, for example, if a distribution of 3 cents was paid and you hold 1000 units you will be paid a distribution of $30 (1000 x $0.03). Distributions can include different types of income including dividends, interest and realised capital gains. The amount and timing of distributions will vary from period to period. Investors should be aware that there may be periods in which no distribution is made.

The unit price of the Fund will fall by a corresponding amount when the distribution is paid.
