Our investment approach

Our strong in-house investments team has expertise across  a range of asset classes. We invest in listed companies, bonds and large unlisted assets such as airports, roads, timber plantations and high-quality retail, industrial and commercial properties.

As large investors, we’re able to engage with the boards and management of our 50 largest Australian investments on material environment, social and governance (ESG) issues.

Our members have the flexibility to choose from 16 investment options, including pre-mixed and sector options.

Responsible investment

We consider a range of financial and ESG factors when making investment decisions. We look to invest in companies with good corporate behaviour1 that can deliver sustainable, long-term returns for our members. And with three sustainable and environmental-branded options, we offer our members real choice when it comes to how their super is invested.2

Responsible investment

We take a risk-based approach to identify key ESG factors across our major investments. See how we’re delivering long term returns and supporting a better tomorrow.

Climate risks and opportunities

We actively manage climate risks and opportunities across our portfolios. Learn about how we factor climate into our investment decisions.

Sustainable and environmental branded options

These options2 allow members to limit their exposure to certain industries and/or to invest in companies seeking to address environmental issues.
