Member Outcomes Assessments

Everything we do at UniSuper is always done with you in mind. Putting your financial needs first to help you enjoy exceptional retirement outcomes, underpins all that we do.


Super funds must annually assess their performance based on data from the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA). The assessment measures the performance of our MySuper and Choice investment options against our competition. It considers our fees and costs, investment returns and the benefits of being a UniSuper member.


We’re proud to share our results for the 2020-21 financial year.
