Are you unsure which investment options are right for you in retirement?

Deciding which option/s is right for your retirement savings is a personal decision that depends on factors such as your tolerance to risk, and how long you are investing for. It’s important to remember that even in retirement your super is a long-term investment, with your funds often needing to last 20 years or more.

We offer a range of tools and services which will assist you in determining what your risk appetite is and which investment options are right for you.

^ The average crediting rates are calculated from the date the option became available to 30 June 2017. “Average” is the compound average effective rate of net earnings of the investment option over the period.

+ The Federal Government requires 15% tax to be applied to the earnings of Transition to Retirement (TTR) accounts from 1 July 2017. To implement this, TTR members have their assets invested in an asset pool where the tax on investment earnings is applied. Note that the 5 and 10 year average returns disclosed above relate to the current investment options which TTR members are invested in, and which are subject to 15% tax on earnings, and (for those members who held a TTR account before 1 July 2017) are not the average returns of the investment options TTR members were invested in prior to 30 June 2017, which were not subject to tax on earnings.
