Investors will have to pay a $10,000 investment fee if they buy a Lincoln Investments bond or bond with the government’s Direct Benefit Fund, the agency said.
The fee is the same for all investors regardless of their age.
The investment firm has also added a new product called “Investment Calculator”, which shows the return of Lincoln Investments bonds or bonds with the Direct Benefit.
Mr Abbott said he was introducing the new products to ensure investors understood how much they were investing.
“It’s a tool to make sure they understand the investment,” he said.
“They have a bond which they buy and pay a fee for and then they have a pension fund which they can put into and they can invest in.”
They don’t have to understand how much you’re putting in.
“So, we’ve also taken some of the tools that have been used by many other pension funds and put them into the investment calculator, so you can understand how to invest.”
He said the investment agency was looking to expand its service to more businesses and the government had been a “good partner”.
“We’ve got more and more businesses now that are using the Lincoln Investments tool, so we’re going to see it expand even further,” Mr Abbott told reporters.
“There are some things we can do in the budget that are not yet part of the Budget, which are things like tax relief and infrastructure investment and other things that we’re looking at in the Budget.”
Mr Abbott has already announced a number of measures to help Australians save.
The government is expected to announce a tax holiday for small businesses, but will not detail the details of the plan.
He also wants to extend a tax benefit for overseas workers, and will announce plans to remove the “middle-class tax” that was introduced by the previous Labor government.
Labor says it is committed to the economy, the environment and the rights of people with disabilities.
Mr Shorten said he would continue to push for a carbon tax.
”The Greens will continue to make clear that a carbon price is needed to deal with the climate crisis, and we will support the Turnbull government in its efforts to reduce the budget deficit, cut costs and bring down the deficit by more than $3 billion a year,” he said in a statement.
Lincoln Investments said it would be a ”big win” for the nation if it made a ”significant” return on investment.
It said it was a ”real asset class for Australia that is a real growth engine for our economy, and one that has provided a substantial boost to the nation’s living standards”.
Lithuanian President Gaspare Gubarev said he had been briefed by Mr Abbott that he was ”a good partner”, but did not know the details.
‘A big win’ for Australia’s future President Gubarvev said that the announcement was a “big win” for the country and he would be watching closely to see if it was passed.
Australian business has been “on a tear”, but has “taken a back seat” to China and other competitors, he said, and he was “extremely disappointed” in the announcement.
