Member Direct

Tap into your inner investor and take complete control of your investments with our self-managed Member Direct option.

How Member Direct works 

You make your own strategy by investing in your choice of:

  • shares in the S&P/ASX 300 Index
  • Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
  • term deposits

It all starts with your transaction account, which is the hub of your Member Direct option. It works like an online bank account and earns a competitive interest rate. 

You transfer money from your other AustralianSuper investment options into this account, and then use this money to invest. You can also do the reverse and transfer money from this transaction account back into your other AustralianSuper options.
