What the researchers say

MLC Navigator Retirement Plan Series 2 is a sub-plan of the MLC Superannuation Fund and is designed to enable the establishment of a diversified portfolio accessing the primary investment markets of cash, fixed interest, equities and property through the various investment strategies offered.

Members are able to access an excellent range of investment options, including a range of wholesale investment alternatives managed by leading fund managers, a range of shares listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), a variety of various Term Deposits and a Separately Managed Account (SMA). Past performance of the fund is not readily available and therefore cannot be accurately measured against the relevant SuperRatings indices.

Fees associated with this product are lower than the industry average across medium and large account balances assessed. Discounts and fee caps apply to the administration fee based on account balances, including linked accounts, while a portion of the fees are negotiable with financial advisers.

The Fund provides reasonable pension flexibility, with a selection of 4 payment frequencies as well as the ability to automatically increase pension payments by CPI or a nominated percentage annually. Beneficiary options are comprehensive, including non-lapsing binding and non-binding death benefit nominations, as well as reversionary pensions.

Members have online access to their portfolio information, with their financial adviser having the ability to transact and obtain reports on their behalf. Additionally, members have access to an automatic re-weighting facility that allows for eligible investment options to be re-weighted on a quarterly, half yearly or yearly basis.
