WHEN IT COMES TO CHOOSING a super fund, working Australians make decisions with their head and their heart. When AustralianSuper surveyed working Australians on what the three most important factors were when choosing a super fund, they replied: strong returns; low fees; and a lifetime of financial guidance. These insights shape everything the industry super fund does, along with returning profits to its 2.3 million members.
For the best possible outcome in retirement, AustralianSuper encourages its members to take small actions, like bringing all their super accounts together which, combined with AustralianSuper’s big actions, like strong longterm investment performance, consistent growth and low fees, will ultimately deliver members their best results.
On average, women are on the back foot when it comes to super. Lower earnings, time out from the workforce, and longer life expectancy than men are some of the reasons. AustralianSuper recognises this and raises awareness of the ‘gender gap’ in super in many ways, including advocating for change, undertaking research studies, and raising awareness among female members with its series of 'Super Makeovers’ to improve their retirement savings.
