Futurity Awards and Ratings

We are proud to have received the following Awards and Ratings for the Futurity Education Bond product

For better education access

We use our voice to lobby for better education access for everyone, and we’re active with education-focused philanthropy to support the community, including:

  • Investing in The Smith Family's Learning For Life program, supporting the education needs of Australian children facing disadvantage.
  • Running our flagship annual National Excellence in Teaching Awards (NEiTA) to recognise exemplary and inspiring teachers across Australia.

For extra tax benefits

Our mutual structure means our clients benefit from significant tax advantages. As a non-distributing investment and while accumulating, the investment growth doesn’t add to the Bond Owner's personal taxable income. Plus an extra Education Tax benefit which amounts to an additional $30 for every $70 withdrawn from investment earnings.

  • Tax-effective funding for a full range of lifelong education courses, from pre-school right through to adult education.
