How to read your
FirstChoice Personal Super
Your regular statement contains valuable information about your investment,
so it’s important to take some time to understand it.
1 Your account valuation
Unit price
The value of a single unit
in the investment option.
The number of units held
in the investment option.
Calculated by multiplying
the number of units by the
unit price on the last day
of the statement period.
Remember: The number of units you hold in a fund will
not decrease unless units are sold to withdraw, switch out,
or pay fees (direct fees only). However, the unit price will
fluctuate, which will affect the value of your investment.
2 Your account summary

account over the reporting period for example
contributions by you or your employer, withdrawals
or deductions of insurance premiums.

balance over the statement period. It calculates the
difference between the opening and closing balances
that have occurred during the statement period after
all transactions have been accounted for.
