“Now more than ever we are focused on the value of the strong partnerships we have with our clients and these fee reductions reflect our continual goal and commitment to deliver on these relationships,” he said.

“In addition to the focus on fees, over the past 12 months Australian financial advisers have faced mounting cost pressures amid an increasingly complex environment. We are continually looking at ways to strengthen our partnerships with financial advisers and by reducing our management fees on these funds we will better enable advice practices to form deeper relationships with their clients.”
