ASB and Smartshares FAQs

Why are we stepping aside as the manager of the Superannuation Master Trust?

Smartshares was looking for an opportunity to grow their SuperLife business, and realised that the ASB Superannuation Master Trust was an ideal match for their investment values and their management approach. We were impressed with the level of service they could offer our customers, and our shared values. We were confident they could take over the management of our members' funds seamlessly, and provide them with the same high level of service and investment management expertise. 

When will Smartshares take over?

Smartshares Limited is now the manager of the ASB Superannuation Master Trust. However, Smartshares has delegated certain investment management and administration functions to ASB Group Investments Limited in order to facilitate a smooth transition.

Over time, Smartshares will take over these functions through a transition process, which may take several years. We will be in contact with you throughout this process so you know exactly what is happening.

For now, nothing about the way your money is managed, or who you contact for assistance has changed.

Will Smartshares invest all of my money on the stock market?

No. You will continue to be in control of your own investment strategy and will be able to switch between income, balanced, growth, high growth and other investment strategies when you wish and at no cost.

Will I keep the same investment options and withdrawal terms?

Yes. Your investment will remain in the same fund or funds that you currently hold.  All of the terms you agreed to when you joined remain in place.
