Insurance cover is provided to eligible members by AIA Australia Limited (ABN 79 004 837 861, AFSL 230043).

The Trustee does not in any way endorse, warrant or accept responsibility for any services provided by Verve Superannuation Pty Ltd in its own right or directly to members or prospective members.

Legal effect of documentation

The offer to invest in Verve Super is contained in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS). Anyone wishing to invest in Verve Super will need to read the PDS and complete the relevant join form.

This website does not take the place of the legal document known as the Trust Deed which governs the operation of the Fund. The Trust Deed is binding on the Trustee, the Promoter, the Sub-Promoter and the members of Verve Super. If any dispute arises concerning benefits or any other aspect of Verve Super, the Trust Deed (and the law) will always be the final authority.

About returns performance

Return of capital and the performance of your investment in Verve Super is not guaranteed. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Figures showing a period of less than one year have not been adjusted to show an annual total return. Figures for periods of greater than one year are on a per annum compound basis.

Calculating returns for superannuation

Net investment returns are calculated using prescribed standard methods and assumptions, and take into account administration and investment fees, taxes and other costs. The standard calculations are based on a member with an account balance of $50,000, which will not be relevant to all members. The standard calculations do not allow for the effect of contributions to your account, insurance fees or various other matters.

Transacting

Verve Super’s investment option is unitised. The unit price is determined weekly on a forward pricing basis. This means that when processing contributions or withdrawals the price used will be the next price calculated after the contribution or withdrawal request is received.

Buy-sell spread

The buy-sell spread is an adjustment to the unit price to create a difference between the entry and exit price for the investment option. It is designed to cover the transaction costs when you make a contribution or a withdrawal, so that these costs are not passed onto other investors. The buy-sell spread is built into the unit price and therefore does not appear on your member statement. The buy-sell spread is not paid to the Investment Manager. The buy-sell spread for Verve Super’s investment option is reviewed from time to time and may change. If the buy-sell spread is changed, it will be updated on this website.

Applications to invest

Applications to invest in Verve Super can only be accepted if you live in Australia and must be made in Australian Dollars.
