  • More about Asgard Elements - Super/Pension

    Other features of your Asgard Elements Super Account include:

    Transfer from Super to Pension

    You can easily transfer part or all of your benefits from an Asgard Elements Super Account to a tax-effective Asgard Elements Allocated Pension Account.

    We can transfer eligible investments without selling them, which means there is no disposal for capital gains tax purposes (Super Account only) and no charges associated with buying and selling investments. For the conditions that apply to these transfers refer to the Asgard Elements Super/Pension PDS.

    Choice of Fund

    Your Elements Super Account is part of a complying super fund under ‘Choice of Fund’ legislation. We can accept any Superannuation Guarantee contributions that you may ask your employer to pay us (if you’re eligible).

    Elements Pension Accounts

    Other features of your Asgard Elements Pension Accounts include:

    Access to benefits

    • Allocated Pension Account - with an allocated pension you can adjust the amount of your regular pension payments to suit your needs*. You can also choose the frequency of your pension payments and you can take all or part of your benefits as a lump sum payment.

      *Note: This depends upon how much money you have in your Account and is subject to limits set by legislation.

    Tax credits

    Investment earnings in Elements Pension Accounts are free of tax. You should also receive the full value of any available franking credits on the investments that fund your pension.

    Transfers between Pensions

    You can transfer part or all of your benefits from an existing Asgard Elements Allocated Pension Account to another Asgard Elements Allocated Pension Account without selling down your managed investments. This can eliminate transfer costs.

  • Investment options

    With Elements you can invest with some of the most recognised investment brands in the industry. The Elements investment options make up a concentrated, quality-focused investment menu, designed so you can tailor your portfolio to your investment needs and make investing easy.

    Investment philosophy

    Asgard Elements aims to provide you with:

    • superior managers across each asset sector and
    • reduced risk through sector, manager and investment style diversification.

    Flexibility and choice

    Asgard Elements gives you the flexibility to choose any combination of the diversified and sector multi-manager funds or single-manager funds. This ensures you’re able to achieve a portfolio of investments suitable for your needs.

    Your mix of investments will depend on what you and your financial adviser decide is best for you, taking into account your personal and financial goals and an appropriate investment risk profile. How involved you want to be is up to you. You can actively participate in managing your investment profile with your financial adviser or just ‘set and forget’.

    Your financial adviser can also switch your investments at any time, quickly and easily, as your financial or lifestyle needs change.

    Investment menu

    Sound historical performance and investment grade ratings are the primary criteria for choosing fund managers for the Asgard Elements menu.

    The menu is made up of five diversified multi-manager funds, six sector multi-manager funds and 50 single-manager funds. Each of the multi-manager funds comprises a number of professional investment managers selected for their expertise in a particular sector.

    Asgard Elements investment options

  • Investment performance

    Keep an eye on your investments by reading our Investment Monthly which contains performance and asset allocation information. The monthly report is available on Investor Online.

  • Insurance

    To help protect your lifestyle and investments in the event of a personal crisis, Asgard offers a range of insurance options available through Super.

    These include:

    • Salary Continuance
    • Life Protection
    • Total & Permanent Disablement (TPD)

    Insurance options are available through:

    Premiums for insurance can be paid directly from your Cash Account.

  • Regular deposit plan

    A Regular Deposit Plan makes it easy for you to make deposits to your Asgard Elements Account.

    For as little as $100 per month you can make regular deposits into your Account and keep accumulating wealth in a more disciplined way.

    Simply choose how much you want to invest, how often you want to make deposits and for how long.

    Remember, the sooner you start the easier it will be to reach your financial goals.

  • Auto-rebalancing facility

    Despite sounding like something your mechanic might do for you, this facility ensures that your investment profile is automatically maintained on either a quarterly, half-yearly or annual basis.

    This means you don’t need to constantly monitor your investments or send your adviser manual investment instructions.

    How auto-rebalancing works

    Over time, the investments in your account will change in value at different rates until they no longer represent the investment profile that you originally established with your financial adviser. Since your original investment profile was carefully constructed to meet your financial goals, it’s important to rebalance your portfolio back to its original agreed proportions. The Elements unique auto-rebalancing facility ensures that your investment profile is automatically maintained on a quarterly, half-yearly or annual basis, so that you don’t need to constantly monitor your investments or send in investment instructions.

  • Borrowing to invest

    With Asgard Elements - Investment, you are able to use a number of margin lending providers to borrow money to invest through your Account. This is called ‘gearing’ and it’s a powerful tool for wealth creation that can help you meet a range of investment objectives.

    Gearing can enhance the after-tax return you receive on your investments, enhancing the total value of your investments over time. Conversely, if your investments perform poorly, you have the potential for losses. You should speak with your financial adviser to help decide if this strategy is right for you.

  • Disclosure documents

  • Fees

    With Elements, you pay a simple, flat Administration fee – this fee and any fees that you pay your financial adviser are negotiated directly between you and your financial adviser. The Investment fees you pay depend on the managed investments you choose for your portfolio and we’ve negotiated great pricing for you with the investment managers on the investment menu. It doesn’t get much easier than this. For a full explanation of the fees that may apply, speak to your financial adviser or see the Asgard Elements Product Disclosure Statement.
