Corporate expense ratio (MER)


The investment management agreement with KFM provides for the payment of an investment management fee of 0.4% per annum from 1 July 2015. Commencing 1 July 2014 performance has been measured by reference to the one year interest swap rate plus 6%. This aligns with current interest rates and approximates to 9% per annum. The investment return includes the benefit of franking credits received in the calculation. The performance fee benchmark has been reset and applied for the 2015 financial year. A highwater mark applies within each 3 year reset period.


The Board estimates the MER for FY2016 will be less than 1%.
