Be with the best super fund

Know why it’s important to choose the best in super. We're one of Australia's top performing funds over 20 years1 based on the Balanced option, which is why more than 2.8 million2 Australians choose us.

A proudly member-first fund

As an industry super fund, we don’t pay dividends or profits to shareholders so the money we make goes back into the fund for the benefit of members. All profits go back to members. We choose to focus on providing strong, long term performance to benefit members, because we believe they’re the fund’s greatest investment.

Strong, long-term performance

When you’re choosing a super fund, it’s important to look at the fund’s long-term performance history and not just how it’s performing today. We're one of the top 2 performing super funds over 7, 10 and 20 years based on the Balanced option1.

Balanced investment option

Balanced option outperformed the median fund in the SuperRatings survey for super (+1.33%) and the account based pension product Choice Income (+1.35%) over 10 years to 30 June 2022.

The graph above shows how the Balanced option outperformed the median fund in the SuperRatings survey by 1.33%. When you’re looking at performance, it’s essential to look at the net benefit – this is what is left in your super after admin and investment fees have been deducted.

We use an active investment strategy aiming to deliver better returns for members. This means, we continually research and monitor investment markets, economies, business and consumer trends and company performance – here and around the world. This helps us identify the best potential investment opportunities for members, as well as make decisions about the best time to sell investments.
