We use our size and scale to benefit members
As Australia’s largest super fund, we can take advantage of opportunities that aren’t available to smaller funds.
Strong cashflows enable us to reallocate funds to different assets classes without selling valuable long-term assets. This also helps keep transaction and tax costs low, which benefits members’ returns.
We’ve been gradually increasing the amount of assets our in-house investment team manage, which is helping to lower costs and access better investments for members.
We’re active managers
We believe an active management approach is the best way to invest. That’s why we select specific sectors, assets and stocks that we believe have the potential to outperform the broader market. We also use index managers in some options to lower overall portfolio costs or where active management opportunities are smaller.
AustralianSuper aims to reduce the impact of volatility of any one asset class or strategy by diversifying across and within asset classes.
AustralianSuper invests in direct property and infrastructure, which perform differently to conventional growth assets and offer attractive returns during times of share market volatility.
Our dynamic asset allocation approach gives us the flexibility to adjust portfolios in response to market conditions as necessary, and apply strategic tilts within each asset class where we believe it can add value.
Our investment process is designed to protect and enhance the interests of our members, so they can achieve the best possible retirement outcome.
