SuperRating’s Executive Director, Kirby Rappel, said that UniSuper’s competitive fees and commitment to member education stood out from the rest.

“Competition has continued to intensify across the industry and UniSuper was a standout in SuperRatings’ assessment of funds this year. We believe the best funds must not only provide members with strong performance and competitive fees but that additional areas such as access to advice services and member education can significantly improve members’ ultimate retirement outcomes.
