What are indexed international shares for superannuation mean?
And how do they blend with an indexed balance fund
It will be an investment option within your super that tracks an index of international shares.
Just like the ASX200 or all ords are reported on the news each night (both are indexes) there are indexes that track international markets - this investment option will just track one of those international indexes.
The indexed international shares will be 100% international shares.
The indexed balanced fund will track an index of Australian shares, an index of international shares and likely some kind of bond index all in one option. Depending on what super fund you are taking about they will have a different definition of ‘balanced’ and therefore different allocations to the different indexes to form the balanced option.
