Be with the best super fund

Know why it’s important to choose the best performance in super. We’re Australia’s number 1 performing super fund over 20 years1 based on the Balanced option, which is why more than 2.5 million2 Australians choose us.

A proudly member-first fund

As an industry super fund, we don’t pay dividends or profits to shareholders like retail funds. All profits go back to members. We choose to focus on providing strong, long term performance to benefit members, because we believe they’re the fund’s greatest investment.

Strong, long-term performance

When you’re choosing a super fund, it’s important to look at the fund’s long-term performance history and not just how it’s performing today. AustralianSuper’s Balanced investment option has provided members an annual return of 9.37% over the last 35 years1.

The table above shows how the Balanced option outperformed the median fund in the SuperRatings survey by 1.45%. When you’re looking at performance, it’s essential to look at the net benefit – this is what is left in your super after admin and investment fees have been deducted.

Competitive fees

We aim to secure competitive fees and costs for members. That means less is taken from your super balance, so your money can benefit from additional investment returns.

If you have an account with us, your admin fee is $2.25 per week – plus up to 0.04% of your account balance each year. You’ll also pay an investment fee and a premium for any insurance cover you have.

Investing for you

Super is your money, and it’s important to invest in ways to help it grow. With highly skilled investment teams in Australia, Beijing, London and soon New York, we own more than $200 billion worth of local and global assets – their returns contribute to members’ long-term retirement savings.

We use our influence as a large-scale investor to make positive changes that improve the world around us. We’re taking practical action to improve gender balance on corporate boards and within management ranks, and we’ve committed to achieving Net Zero Emissions in our investment portfolio by 2050 – so we can deliver strong performance for decades to come.

We use an active investment strategy to deliver better returns for members. This means, we continually research and monitor investment markets, economies, business and consumer trends and company performance – here and around the world. This helps us identify the best investment opportunities for members, as well as make decisions about the best time to sell investments.
