Why choose AustralianSuper?

We understand that we all have different things that matter to each of us. That’s why we’re committed to make super savings for all Australians last as long as possible.

We don’t pay profits or dividends to shareholders. It all belongs to our members, people like you.  We also understand that every dollar matters to you, and we’re working hard to make more money for every Australian who invests with us.

AustralianSuper can make all the difference to your super savings.

We’re one of Australia’s largest industry funds with more than 2.1 million members and more than $100 billion in member assets as at 30 June 2016.

We use our size and strength to negotiate low fees and our profits are returned to our members, not shareholders.

It’s our low fees and strong long-term investment performance that can make all the difference:

  • Low fees – the lower your fees, the higher your retirement savings.
  • Strong long-term investment returns – the Balanced option has credited an average return of 9.55% pa since inception (August 1985) to 30 June 2016^.

^ In calculating historical returns for AustralianSuper, where both funds (ARF & STA) offered the equivalent option, the returns have been asset weighted across both options on a monthly basis as per industry best practice. Investment returns are not guaranteed. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future returns. Returns from equivalent investment options of ARF and STA are used in calculating returns for periods that begin before 1 July 2006.
