“This decision to reduce fees is subject to confirmation by the trustee of Australian Retirement Trust after 28 February 2022.

“In the short term, as we are moving assets, investment transaction costs will be incurred that will be reflected in the unit price for some investment options.”

The merged fund will have funds of more than $200 billion.
