Ready-made portfolios

Simple choice is a range of actively-managed investment options designed to deliver returns consistent with their objectives, while managing risk.

Each investment option has a different allocation of growth and defensive assets, to reduce the risk and achieve returns. These investment options are managed within defined ranges so you always know where money is invested.

For more information on Simple Choice, see our MLC Simple Choice brochure.
