How to get started

Get going in just 5 minutes

1. Open your account

To get set up just enter your contact details, your TFN and select from one of our investment menu options - about five minutes.

2. Consolidate your super

Find your other super so you stop paying for multiple things, like fees and insurance you may not need, that could be eating into your super.

3. Tell your employer

Once your account's open, you can complete a 'Super choice form' to give to your employer if you wish for their contributions to be made into your new account.

Before consolidating your super accounts, you should consider where future employer contributions will be paid, any fees or charges you may incur with the rollover, any benefits (including current insurance benefits) which you may lose from your current provider(s) and whether or not you first need to lodge any required 'Notice of intent to claim or vary a deduction for personal contributions' or equivalent forms (which can be sent via email to superandretirement.au@ing.com). You should discuss any potential super strategies with your accountant or financial adviser.

When opening your account, remember:

If you want to close your Term Deposit early:

you need to give us 31 days’ notice, and

Break costs apply if you break your Term Deposit before its maturity date. You will receive a lower interest rate (as a result of the relevant interest rate reduction being applied) than if you had kept the Term Deposit until its maturity date.


Interest will be calculated from the date the Term Deposit was opened to the date the Term Deposit is closed (inclusive of the 31-day notice period), less the interest rate reduction as shown in the tables below.

'Break Cost' rules applied to Term Deposits opened on or after 1 January 2021:

Table 1

Time elapsed by the time you withdraw
Percentage of the interest rate you lose

0% to less than 20%

90%

20% to less than 40%

80%

40% to less than 60%

60%

60% to less than 80%

40%

80% to less than 100%

20%

Example: If you buy a 2-year Term Deposit on 1 April 2022 at an agreed interest rate of 1.20% p.a., you need to keep your money in it until 31 March 2024 to receive that interest rate. If you break the Term Deposit on 31 March 2023 (which is at the 1-year mark, so you’ve only had it for 50% of its total term), the interest rate you would have received at full term (1.20% p.a.) will be reduced by 60%. You will receive 0.48% p.a.

'Break Cost' rules applied to Term Deposits opened on or before 31 December 2020:

Interest rate reduction

Example: If you bought a 2-year Term Deposit on 1 December 2020 at an agreed interest rate of 1.20% p.a., you need to keep your money in it until 1 December 2022 to receive that interest rate. If you break the Term Deposit on 1 December 2021, because it was a 2-year Term Deposit (regardless how long you've held it) the interest rate will be reduced by 2.00% p.a. (but can't go below 0.00%).

Note: If you bought a Term Deposit on or before 31 December 2020 but the rules to newer Term Deposits (Table 1) give you a higher interest rate, we will apply the rate which is more favourable to you.

So, let's apply the rules in Table 1 to the Term Deposit you bought on 1 December 2020. You’ve held the Term Deposit for 50% of its total term, so your interest rate will be reduced by 60%. This means instead of 1.20% p.a., you receive 0.48% p.a. This is a better outcome than the 0.00% p.a. if we apply the rules from Table 2. We'll give you an interest rate of 0.48%.

ETFs, Shares and LICs

Learn about customising your portfolio

With ETFs you can access local and international share markets in a single trade. An ETF is traded on the ASX just like any other share but is structured like a traditional managed investment. ETFs generally contain a collection of individual securities and usually represent a particular index. For more information on ETFs please refer to section 4 of the Product Guide. See the full list of ETFs.

Investing in ETFs

ETFs can provide a range of benefits for long-term investors such as:

Diversification - ETFs provide instant exposure to a diversified portfolio of securities, and diversification reduces concentration risk in a portfolio.

Cost effective - ETFs are a cost-effective way to invest in a diversified portfolio of shares.

Flexibility - You can generally buy and sell ETFs any time during the trading day at market prices. Brokerage fees apply.

Transparency - ETFs are listed on a securities exchange with market prices quoted throughout the trading day and portfolio holdings are published regularly so you know exactly what they are invested in.

While ETFs offer diversification which may reduce risk, they are still subject to the rise and fall of the market. The level of risk will depend on the types of securities held within an individual ETF's portfolio.

Further, fees and costs apply to holding, buying and selling ETFs. For more information on the fees and costs associated with a specific ETF, please refer to the ETF provider's website, otherwise see below for the fees and costs for Living Super.

A share represents part ownership of a company. When you buy shares you become a shareholder, which entitles you to dividends (share of company profits) and capital growth (a rise in the share price). Australian listed securities can be bought and sold on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). The S&P/ASX 300 index is comprised of the top 300 listed companies (by market capitalisation), giving you the opportunity to invest in some of Australia's most well-known companies across a range of industries. Further information on the individual securities within the S&P/ASX 300 can be found at asx.com.au.1

Investing in shares

High long-term return potential: While they can be volatile in the short-term, historically, Australian shares have earned higher returns than other investments over the longer-term.

Tax-effective income: Many Australian companies pay dividends that come with franking credits. Franking credits reflect corporate taxes that a company has already paid. Your account may be eligible for franking credits upon receipt of a dividend.

Liquidity: Generally, shares in the S&P/ASX 300 can be easily bought and sold on the ASX through the trading day.

Fees and costs apply to holding, buying and selling shares. See below for the fees and costs for Living Super.

1 Important Information: The stocks included in the S&P/ASX300 index change over time. If you own a stock that has been removed from the S&P/ASX 300 index, you can generally retain the shares and sell them at any time but you will not be able to buy more of that stock unless it is re-introduced into the index.

With LICs you can access a diversified range of local and international markets in a single trade. LICs invest in assets in a similar way as a managed investment, but are traded on the ASX just like shares and are taxed as a company. LICs are closed-ended professionally managed investments whereby a manager of the LIC invests in a range of assets including shares, property and fixed interest.

Investing in LICs

LICs can provide a range of benefits for long-term investors including:

Diversification - LICs provide instant exposure to a diversified portfolio of securities, and diversification reduces concentration risk in a portfolio.

Flexibility - You can generally buy and sell LICs any time during the trading day at market prices. Brokerage fees apply.

Transparency - LICs are listed on a securities exchange and portfolio holdings are published regularly so you know exactly what you own.

Fees and costs apply to holding, buying and selling of LICs. In addition it is common for LICs to have management and performance fees. For more details on the specific fees associated with each LIC, refer to the provider's website, otherwise see below for the fees and costs for Living Super.

In addition to the above, listed securities can allow you to tailor your investment strategy by combining ASX-listed shares and exchange traded products alongside your managed investments, and can be less hassle because we will take care of all the administration, compliance and reporting requirements.

This option may suit you if you want to be actively involved in managing your super, however you need to consider things such as:

cost (applicable administration and brokerage fees);

short-term share price volatility;

liquidity (or lack thereof);

consequences of trading too often;

too little diversification; and

risks of investing in response to your emotions (this may apply to all investment options).

We strongly encourage you to consult a qualified financial adviser before investing in listed securities as there are risks involved and you are responsible for any decisions to buy, sell or hold securities, not the Trustee or ING. Any advice on this webpage does not take into account your objectives, financial situation or needs and you should consider the Product Disclosure Statement, Product Guide, Target Market Determination and Financial Services Guide available at ing.com.au/documents when deciding if investing in listed securities is appropriate for you. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance

A minimum of $500 applies to share purchases. No minimum amount applies to share sales, but broker limits and market rules may apply.

You can invest up to 100% (subject to the Cash Hub minimum) of your account balance in the Listed Securities investment category (S&P/ASX300 Shares & Tier 1 and 2 Exchange Traded Products). Tier 3 category products are restricted to 40% of your total account balance. This is also subject to the Cash Hub minimum requirement

You can invest between 10% and 50% into one listed security, tiered as per the table below.

Over time, due to market volatility, the value of your shares and/ or exchange traded products relative to one another and relative to other investment options in your portfolio may change. This means you may exceed the maximum allowed investment limits. If you exceed the maximum 40% of your total account balances in the Exchange Traded Product Tier 3 category, you won’t be able to make any additional purchases of Tier 3 securities until you rebalance your portfolio and bring it back in line within the allowable investment limit. If you exceed the individual limit relevant to your specific tier, you won’t be able to make any additional purchases of that individual share and/or exchange traded product.

Individual limit Aggregate limit
S&P/ASX 300 constituents 20% 100%
Exchange Traded Product Tier 1 50% 100%
Exchange Traded Product Tier 2 25% 100%
Exchange Traded Product Tier 3 10% 40%

If you wish to open a share trading account, you can do this once your account has been opened For more information, please visit ing.com.au/contact-us, or speak with your financial adviser.

Choosing an ETF will be based on your own investment strategy. Some investors select ETFs that provide them with a thematic exposure to specific sectors such as technology, sustainability or emerging markets.

Other investors select ETFs with the aim of having their investment track a particular index. For example, an investor may select an ETF which tracks the NASDAQ (National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations exchange).

Once you have a share trading account, you can access premium market research for $20 per month. This premium market research provides in-depth portfolio analysis including share recommendations and investment ratings. Market research and premium market research is facilitated by Living Super’s share broker. See the Product Guide for more information.

If you wish to trade ASX listed securities and/or Exchange Traded Products through your Living Super account, you will need to open a share trading account. Your account must have a minimum balance of $10,000 in order for you to open a share trading account.

When you place share orders, the costs or proceeds of share trades are settled through your Cash Hub (after deducting brokerage). A minimum of $500 applies to share purchases. No minimum amount applies to share sales, however, broker limits and market rules may apply.
