The fund has been designed for employers who want to tailor a solution for their employees. Colonial First State offers a comprehensive investment menu of diversified and single sector investment options, as well as FirstRate Wholesale term deposits and cash.

The fund also charges a Regulatory Reform fee of 0.2% up to a maximum of $40.
