Choosing the right fund could mean more money in the future, giving you more confidence in your long-term retirement plan performance.

How does AustralianSuper compare?


All super funds includes bank-owned and other retail, industry, government, and corporate funds.
Retail super funds include bank-owned and other retail, government, and corporate funds.

It’s not only performance that matters. When choosing a super fund, it’s important to consider investment earnings as well as any fees, to determine what your overall financial position could be – this is what is called the ‘net benefit’.

The net benefit graph above shows how we compare to the average super fund and the average retail super fund. The totals show what a member would have had after 15 years, in addition to their $50,000 starting balance and employer contributions, assuming they started with a $50,000 annual salary*.

And if the same member had been with AustralianSuper for only the previous 3 or 10 years, the net benefit would also be higher relative to averages for all super funds and retail super funds.

Our consistent historical performance is part of the reason why more Australians trust us than any other fund, for six years running#.

*Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance and should never be the sole factor considered when selecting a fund. Comparisons are modelled by SuperRatings, commissioned by AustralianSuper. Modelled outcome shows the average difference in net benefit of AustralianSuper’s Balanced option and the main balanced options of funds tracked by SuperRatings that have comparable options and a 3 (330 funds), 10 (177 funds) and 15 (111 funds) year performance history, taking into account historical earnings and fees – excluding contribution, entry, exit, insurance and additional adviser fees. Outcomes vary between individual funds. Net benefit modelling results presented are as at 30 June 2017. No adjustments have been made to the figures to take into account the effect of inflation on purchasing power since this time.
