We're known as one of Australia's best super funds
Super is what we do, so it’s great that we’re among the best in the country
We take our responsibility for looking after our members’ retirement savings seriously. That’s why it’s great that Chant West recognised our investment people, governance processes and strong returns* by naming Best Fund: Investments in 2019.
Our financial advice service won the Chant West Best Fund: Advice Services in 2020, 2019 and 2017. While we already know that our financial advisers deliver the best quality in general and personal advice, it’s nice that others see this too.

We have some of the lowest fees in the market. Our Balanced option is ranked in the top three for lowest total fees and costs across several balances, including number one for balances of $250k and $500k.3 Use the table to see how we compare.
We assess every investment we make against our environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles. We’re one of Australia’s largest investors in sustainably themed strategies with more than $12 billion invested across these investment options. Creating futures that won’t cost the earth
