A fund that works as hard as you do

With over 3.3 million members6 and a history of strong, long-term performance2, we’re Australia’s largest and most trusted super fund3. We're a profit-for-member fund. We don't pay profits or dividends to shareholders, so the money we make is for members.

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. That is, what your overall financial position could be after taking away admin and investment fees – it’s one of the best ways to see how funds stack up.


See how AustralianSuper compares

Net benefit to 30 June 2023. Net benefit refers to investment earnings less administration, investment fees and costs, transaction costs and taxes. Investment returns are not guaranteed. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future returns.

The comparison shows what a member would have for 15 years to 30 June 2023, in addition to a $50,000 starting balance and employer contributions, assuming they started with a $50,000 annual salary7.
