What the researchers say

Macquarie Wrap - Pension Manager is part of the Manager suite of Wrap products offered by Macquarie Investment Management Limited and is designed for members who have advisers to assist them with personal advice in respect to their investments.

Members are able to access an excellent range of investment options, including over 500 managed investments, Australian listed securities, a variety of term deposits and Separately Managed Account (SMA) Model Portfolios. Past performance of the fund is not readily available and therefore cannot be accurately measured against the relevant SuperRatings indices.

Fees are lower than the industry average across medium and large account balances assessed. The administration fee applies to holdings in each investment, with a reduced administration fee applicable to balances over $50,000. An additional SMA administration fee may apply for holdings in a SMA. There are no exit fees, while a switching fee is charged to changing investment options and participating in corporate actions.

Macquarie Wrap - Pension Manager offers a reasonable level of flexibility with a choice of 4 pension payment frequencies. Beneficiary options are comprehensive, including non-lapsing binding and non-binding death benefit nominations, as well as reversionary pensions and child pensions.

Members and their adviser can track investments and access comprehensive reports online, while online trading is also available to advisers. Additionally, members have access to an automatic rebalancing facility to ensure their account stays in-line with their investment strategy.
