Who can enter?

The promotion is only open to Eligible Entrants. An "Eligible Entrant" is an individual who:

  1. is a resident of Australia aged 16 years or older as at time of entry. Eligible Entrants under 18 years old must have parental/guardian approval to enter and further, the parent/guardian of the Eligible Entrant must read and consent to these Terms and Conditions. Parents/guardians may be required by the Promoter to enter into a further agreement as evidence of consent to the minor entering this promotion; and
  2. is not an employee of the Promoter or any of its related corporations or any of their agencies associated with the promotion (or a spouse, defacto spouse, parent, child or sibling [whether natural or by adoption] of such an employee); and
  3. is a member of the Russell Investments Master Trust (“iQ Super”) for all or part of the Promotion Period and at the time of the Prize Draw on Wednesday 17 January 2018.

Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms and Conditions, a person ("Person") is not entitled to enter this promotion if:

  1. the Promoter has formed the opinion that the Person has breached the conditions of entry of a previous contest run by the Promoter; and
  2. the Person has been given written notice by the Promoter stating that, as a result of such opinion of the Promoter, the Person is ineligible to enter contests, competitions or promotions conducted by the Promoter.

Any Person referred to in this clause shall remain ineligible to enter a contest, competition or promotion conducted by the Promoter until such time as when the Promoter provides written notice to that Person stating otherwise.

If there is a dispute as to the identity of an Eligible Entrant, the Promoter reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine the identity of the Eligible Entrant.

Promotion Period

00:00 hrs (AEST) on 24 July 2017 to 24:00 hrs (AEDST) on 22 December 2017 ("Promotion Period"), where 00:00 hrs is the start of a day and 24:00 hrs is the end of a day.

Entry Method

Entry into the promotion is automatic where an Eligible Entrant, during the Promotion Period satisfies the Entry Criteria as set out below.

Any person who submits an entry who would otherwise be an Eligible Entrant but who does not wish to enter the promotion may advise the Promoter by telephoning 1800 555 667 and that Eligible Entrant will be deemed ineligible to enter the promotion.

The Promoter is not responsible for any late, lost, incorrectly submitted, delayed, ineligible, incomplete, corrupted or misdirected entry whether due to error, transmission, interruption or otherwise.

The time of entry will be deemed to be the time the entry is received by the Promoter.

Entry Criteria

Eligible Entrants will be granted one (1) entry into the promotion if they consolidate a minimum of $2,000 from another super account into their iQ Super account during the Promotion Period. If the consolidated amount is less than $2,000 an Eligible Entrant may still be granted one (1) entry into the promotion, but only if that consolidated amount is the total of all of the Eligible Entrant’s other funds. For the removal of doubt, another super account means an account that is not an account in the Russell Investments Master Trust. Entries will be awarded once the funds reach the Eligible Entrant’s iQ Super account. Eligible Entrants can consolidate their super over the phone by calling 1800 555 667, through the Russell Investments Super app (for iOS devices), sending a manual consolidation form to iQ Super by Russell Investments, Locked Bag A4094, Sydney South NSW 1235 (so that it is received during the Promotional Period) or by logging into their online account member portal via www.russellinvestments.com.au.

If a member has consolidated their super from another super account into their iQ Super account prior to the Promotion Period, but after 1 July 2017, they will also be granted an automatic entry into the promotion, subject to the above. For the removal of doubt, another super account means an account that is not an account in the Russell Investments Master Trust.

Subject to these Terms and Conditions, an Eligible Entrant may only enter the promotion once during the Promotion Period, that is, the Eligible Entrant will have one (1) entry in the promotion.

Prize Draw Details

The prize draw will take place at Anisimoff Legal, Suite 5, Erina Plaza, 210 Central Coast Highway, Erina NSW 2250 at 16:00 (AEDST) on Wednesday 17 January 2018 (“Prize Draw”).

Prize Details

The first valid entry drawn will win a $15,000 non-concessional contribution to their iQ Super account within the Russell Investments Master Trust (“Prize”).

The Prize is not transferrable or exchangeable.

The Prize is not redeemable for cash unless as at the date of the Prize Draw there is a legislative restriction on Russell Investments Master Trust accepting the contribution for the winner or the winner provides written evidence that they will breach their non-concessional contribution limit for the 2017/2018 financial year if the contribution were to be made. In this situation, a $15,000 cash deposit will be made to the winner’s nominated bank account.

An example of a legislative restriction where the contribution could not be accepted by the Russell Investments Master Trust would be where the winner was aged over age 65 and was no longer gainfully employed.
