HESTA will change from providing weekly to daily unit prices for each investment option. This also means investment switching will move from weekly to daily.
From Thursday 21 October 2021 HESTA will change from providing weekly to daily unit prices for each investment option.
This also means investment switching will move from weekly to daily.
Daily unit prices will provide our members with more up to date valuations of their investments. This will enable our members to make more informed decisions about their investment strategy. As always, we recommend speaking to a financial adviser before making any changes to your investment strategy.
The change will happen automatically, so there’s no action for you to take.
There may be interruptions to unit pricing and investment switching between 19 October 2021 and 23 October as we make this change.
See the table below for a snapshot of the changes.
For full details of the change, please read the Significant Event Notice.

Investment switching will pause from 11:59pm (AEST/AEDT) Tuesday 19 October until 4pm (AEST/AEDT) Wednesday 20 October.
This means you won’t be able to complete any switching requests online during this time.
Any switching requests via the paper form on Wednesday 20 October will be treated as if they were received the next business day (Thursday 21 October).
Any switch requests received before 11:59pm (AEST/AEDT) Tuesday 19 October will follow the existing weekly process and be applied to your account Friday 22 October.
Switch requests received after 4pm (AEST/AEDT) Wednesday 20 October until 4pm (AEST/AEDT) Thursday 21 October will receive the first daily unit price calculated on Thursday 21 October. The switch will be applied to your account two business days later on Monday 25 October.
