Where are you at with your super?

International Equities

This investment option is only invested in international shares, and is therefore much more exposed to volatility in the international share markets than the High Growth, QIEC MySuper or Conservative Growth Options.

When choosing investment options you can nominate one investment option or a mix of different options.

For those members in the accumulation phase, your investment choice can be applied to:

  • your existing account balance and your future contributions and rollovers from other funds, or
  • you can make a separate nomination for each. 

If you don’t make an investment choice, both your existing account balance and future contributions will be invested in the default QIEC MySuper option.

To outperform the Mercer All Country World Index ex. Aus in $AUD – 50% hedged/50% unhedged over rolling 5 year periods.

  • Investment period At least 10 years

  • Risk Very high

Estimated number of negative annual returns is 6.2 over any 20 year period. #

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.
