Confirming your Application and Funding
How will I know if my application for units was successful?
You will receive a confirmation statement from Ausbil once units in the fund have been allocated to you.
This confirmation statement is sent to you via email or mail, depending on the method of communication you have selected on your application form. If you do not receive a confirmation statement, please contact Ausbil Client Services on 1800 287 245 toll free.
What if I made an application and I no longer wish to invest the same amount, as indicated on the application form?
If you would like to invest a lesser amount than indicated on your application form you will need to contact Ausbil Client Services immediately on 1800 287 245. You will then be instructed to amend the relevant section on the Ausbil Application Form and re-send this to us. You can either post, email or fax this page. Ausbil will then modify the investment amount and process your application. We cannot process the application until we receive the correct documentation stating to the amount invested. This may affect the unit price applying to your investment. It is not until you receive a confirmation statement that you are an investor in the fund.
How do I get access to Ausbil Investor Online?

I am having difficulty logging into my Ausbil Investor Online account?
Firstly, make sure you have used the same email address which you used when you applied for the units.
Secondly, you should try logging in on a different browser i.e. Google Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer. At times these browsers are updated and usually this is where the problem lies.

Deceased Estate Guide
What do I do in the event of the death of an investor?
Where the death of an investor or account signatory occurs, it is likely that some changes will need to be made on the account. For example:
- Transfer of investment beneficiaries
- Renaming of account (e.g. to a testamentary trust or estate)
- Appointment of new signatories
- Changes to banking details
Each set of circumstances will be unique so please contact our Client Service Team on 1800 287 245 (toll free) to discuss what is required and the best way to facilitate any changes.
Note that we will always require a certified copy of the Death certificate. Depending on the circumstances we may also need to see other documents such as as:
- Certified copy of the Will
- Certified copy of Probate/ Letters of Administration
- Certified Identification documents for Executors
How do I check the unit prices?
Unit prices are published on the Ausbil website in the Ausbil Fund Centre. Please note, Ausbil operates on a forward pricing model. This means that the unit price for a given day is not calculated until close of business that day and will not be reflected in the Fund Centre until the following day.
How do I make an additional investment?
You will need to complete the Ausbil Additional Investment form. This can be found here. Please make sure you complete this in its entirety. This will need to be signed by all authorised signatories.

Unfortunately, Ausbil does not facilitate regular savings plans. You will need to complete a new Additional Investment form for each supplementary investment.
What if I want to make an investment into a fund which is different to the one I’ve already purchased units in?
This is OK. You can purchase units in different funds to the one you originally invested in without having to complete new application paperwork. Please note, each investment is subject to the minimum initial investment amount. You will need to complete an Additional Investment Form available here and deposit funding using your 9 digit investor number as the reference.
