NQ Pension provides advisers and members access to a wide range of investment instruments listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). To hold each members listed equity portfolio we will establish an account with OpenMarkets Australia Limited. As with all investments held in NQ Super, the ASX account will be established in the name of the Trustee, not in your name.

The instruments available to members on the Investment Menu form the NQ Super & Pension AIL.

ASX listed Instruments available include.

⦁ Ordinary Shares listed on the Australian Stock Exchange;
⦁ ASX Investment Products (see table below for the available list); and
⦁ Hybrid Securities and Bonds.

More information on ASX Investment Products can be found at click here.

ASX listed instruments not included in the NQ Pension AIL include:

⦁ mFunds;
⦁ Warrants;
⦁ Contracts for Difference (CFD’s); and
⦁ Options.

The requirements for investment in listed equities are:

A minimum initial investment of $20,000;

Authorised securities are shares and other equity related securities (excluding warrants, options and MINIs)* that are directly issued by companies and other entities which are listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) or are securities in the process of being listed on the ASX.

The Investment Holding Limits for Single Instruments and Aggregate Holdings will apply.

Investment Holding Limits.

The Trustee imposes certain limits on the amount that can be invested in certain instruments. The limits relate to single instruments and the Aggregate Holding of the account. These limits help to keep your investment portfolio diversified.

Off-Market Transfers.

Members who wish to invest in ASX listed securities may nominate a shareholding to be transferred in or out of the Fund subject to the approval of the Trustee and any criteria established by the Trustee from time to time. For more information, contact the Administrator. For pension accounts, this can only occur prior to the pension account being established or pension payments commencing.

Cash Management Account.

To facilitate the settlement of ASX trades, members who invest in ASX listed securities will automatically have a Bank of QLD Cash Management Account (‘CMA’) established and linked to their ASX account. The CMA is administered by DDH Graham Limited.

Please note, the CMA is used for the settlement of trades and receipt of dividend and other income received from any ASX listed security. All other transactions will be allocated or deducted from your Cash Fund (see section below for details).

Corporate Actions.

Members holding ASX Listed securities have the opportunity to participate in most Corporate Actions that arise for any securities they hold in their portfolio. When the Fund is notified of a Corporate Action by the relevant Share Registry, we will notify your Adviser of your ability to participate in the Corporate Action and how to take up the offer. For more information, please speak to your Adviser or contact us on 1300 986 450.

Dividend Reinvestment Plans.

Dividend Reinvestment Plans (DRP) are not available for any ASX listed security. All dividends are taken in cash and will be allocated to your Cash Management Account net of tax.

Stock Lending.

Stock lending is sometimes used by funds, custodians or investment managers as a mechanism for increasing revenue. The Trustee does not consider that stock lending arrangements are appropriate for NQ Super & Pension, and none will be considered.
