About unit prices
GESB typically uses a 'forward unit pricing' system, which is a widely adopted standard in the funds management and superannuation industry, and allows us to treat all members fairly. Unit prices are calculated by dividing the total market value of the assets in each investment plan, by the total number of units held by all members in the plan. As the market fluctuates on a daily basis, the total value of each investment plan changes. When money is withdrawn for member payments, the required number of units are sold at the unit price applicable at the time the transaction is processed.
The GESB Board has the discretion to depart from the unit pricing calculation policy when deemed necessary. This may include the adoption of historical pricing in particular circumstances.
When processing contributions or withdrawals, the price used will be calculated after the contribution or withdrawal request is received.
Unit prices are generally posted on the second business day following the transaction being processed.
Since 11 November 2004 GESB has calculated unit prices on a daily basis; prior to this unit prices were calculated on a weekly basis.
The unit prices shown for Global Fixed Interest for the period prior to 1 May 2008, relate to the Australian Fixed Interest asset class (which is now closed).
Historical performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
