- Conflicts Management Framework
- Benefits Register
- Remuneration Policy
- Engagement and Ownership Policy
(Includes the Proxy Voting Policy in section 3. You can also view the FY 2020 Proxy Voting Disclosure Report)
Christian Super’s Ethical Investment Positions can be found here.
Christian Super has a cooling-off period for new members who are not satisfied with the Christian Super product they have received. If you joined Christian Super through your employer, you have a 14 day cooling-off period. If you make your own application to Christian Super, you may notify the Trustee within 14 days of receiving confirmation of your membership that you wish to cancel. No exit fee is charged on cancellation.
Notice of cancellation must be in writing, with details of the superannuation vehicle to which payment is to be made. The amount of payment will be adjusted for investment earnings (gains/losses) while the money has been with Christian Super.
