Unlike super, which is usually locked away until you retire, your money is not subject to preservation rules so you can easily add funds, make withdrawals, or adjust your ifsinvest account to meet your changing needs.
Once your ifsinvest account has been established you can withdraw funds or make additional investments from as little as $1,000, refer to the low investment minimums below for more information. You can also set up a regular investment or regular withdrawal plan with as little as $100 per month.
Keep track of your cash flows
The Cash Hub helps you easily track all transactions, including your deposits and withdrawals, income earned, sales proceeds, and fees.
Low investment minimums
The minimum amounts you need to invest are:
- $10,000 for Model Portfolios
- $1,000 for Managed Funds
- $5,000 for Term Deposits
You also need to maintain a balance of at least $2,500 in your Cash Hub at all times.
The income from your investments can be paid into your Cash Hub or, depending on your investment, maybe reinvested to further grow your balance.
