About the return target
Return targets are not guaranteed. Negative returns may occur more or less often than expected.
The return target for the Balanced (MySuper) option has been calculated in accordance with MySuper requirements. It is the average of the expected returns, based on long-run return assumptions.
The investment strategies for the Balanced (MySuper) option and the Balanced option are the same. However, the return target for the Balanced (MySuper) option is higher than the return target for the Balanced option because the Balanced (MySuper) option objective is less conservative, and we have a lower degree of confidence in achieving it.
This doesn’t mean that we are aiming for the Balanced (MySuper) option to have higher returns or that it has a riskier investment strategy.

About the return data
We implemented MySuper on 30 November 2013. Historical returns are based on our Balanced option and are calculated in accordance with MySuper requirements, showing returns minus various fees, costs and taxes. Historically, returns were calculated using a different methodology. Actual returns received by members will depend on the timing of transactions within their account.

About the graph
The graph shows our Balanced (MySuper) option returned between 0.68% and 17.40% each year over the ten years ended 30 June 2021, with an average yearly return of 9.34%. A comparison between the moving average of returns and the moving average of return targets have shown an out-performance for the financial years ended June 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.
Return targets are a relatively new requirement, meaning we did not calculate a return target prior to November 2013. As at 30 June 2014, the return target was CPI + 4.8% and the graph assumes the same CPI+ 4.8% return target applied in earlier years. Fluctuations in the return target reflect past fluctuations in CPI. After 30 June 2014, return targets reflect changes in CPI and changes in hurdle rate. As at 1 November 2021, the return target over 10 years was CPI +3.8%.
