Why choose AustralianSuper?

AustralianSuper can make all the difference to your super savings.

We’re one of Australia’s largest industry funds with more than 2 million members. We use our size and strength to negotiate low fees and our profits are returned to our members, not shareholders.

  • Low fees – the lower your fees, the higher your retirement savings.
  • Strong long-term investment returns – the Balanced option has delivered strong, long-term returns of 6.05% pa over the past ten years compared to the median balanced fund return of 5.35% pa (as at 30 June 2016)^.
