A fund that works as hard as you do

With more than 2 million members and a history of strong, long term performance, we’re Australia’s largest, most-trusted super fund2. We don’t pay dividends or profits to shareholders like retail funds, so members are the only ones who benefit.  

How your fund performs over the long-term will make a big difference to your savings for the future. At AustralianSuper, we focus on what that performance means for the net benefit of your super.
