How does AustralianSuper compare?

Choosing the right fund can mean more money when you retire. We make it easy to compare super funds and account-based pension products, so you can feel confident in the future you’ve worked so hard for.

How your fund performs over the long-term makes a big difference to your retirement outcome. At AustralianSuper, we focus on what that means for the net benefit of your super. This is what your overall financial position could be after investment earnings and fees.

Our history of strong performance and low fees has given members an advantage over the long term. The following table compares AustralianSuper’s net benefit against others. This shows investment earnings to 30 June 2019 less admin and investment fees, and it’s one of the best ways to see how funds stack up.
