Our story began in the 1980s when the first industry funds were set up to help more Australians enjoy a better retirement.
Two of these leading funds were the Australian Retirement Fund and the Superannuation Trust of Australia. Over the years, these funds expanded their membership and enhanced their services and offerings. They recognised a unique opportunity to bring their expertise and strength together to deliver immediate and long-term benefits for existing and future members.
In 2006, they merged and became AustralianSuper. The super fund for all Australians.
Throughout our history, we’ve welcomed members from across the country and have worked to find investment and growth opportunities. We’ve also worked to keep costs low and develop products and provide services that help members. Along the way we’ve become Australia’s most trusted3 superannuation fund.
We’ve also grown to become the largest superannuation fund in Australia, and one of the 20 largest pension funds the world4. We use our size to benefit members.
We remain committed to providing strong long-term returns and excellent products and services for members, now and in the future.
