The investment high five
We have one fundamental goal in mind when it comes to your super—to help you achieve the best possible lifestyle in the future.
But when you dig deeper, we also have a philosophy that guides the way we invest your money. We use this as our playbook to provide consistent, strong returns over the long term. Basically, it’s our investment high five.
1. Long term performance is important
We don’t get distracted by investment fads and short-term market events. Instead, we’re always looking to the future. We’re here to give you real growth over time, so you can enjoy years of income from your super.
2. We don’t sit back – we actively manage your super
We actively manage your super, searching for the best opportunities in Australia and around the world. We focus on taking advantage when markets rise and protecting your super during uncertain times, and we choose specialised investments that we believe have potential to outperform the market.
Not every super fund can do this, but our size means we can secure prime investments, as well as niche opportunities. We put our historically strong returns* down to our active management approach.
3. We mix things up
The best defence against unpredictable investment markets? Diversification. In our managed options we spread investments across shares, cash, property and fixed interest assets, so your returns don’t rely on a single asset class all the time.
4. We believe in downside protection
There will be ups and downs over the life of your super, but we aim to minimise the impact of negative returns when the market falls. This is called ‘downside protection’. Protecting against downside risk means we’re better prepared for market downturns, and you can be more confident about recovering losses.
5. We invest sustainably
We believe that environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are important as they can have a long-term impact on how your super performs. That’s why we invest members’ savings sustainably by investing in companies that meet our ESG criteria and exclude those that don’t.
