How we invest for you

November 18th, 2021

At First Super, we aim to get you the best results over the long term. So when you’re ready to retire, your super’s ready too. For our pension members, we know consistency is important, so you can plan your spending for your retirement lifestyle.

Our focus is on striking the right balance between growing your super balance and protecting your income.

Here are two important ways we invest for you.

Diversifying your investments

Our Balanced investment option, where most members are invested, is split across a range of asset classes, including shares, property, cash and more. Spreading your money like this means if one asset class surges, we’re positioned to capture the upside. And on the other hand, if an asset class dips, other types of investments can contribute to the overall return and limit any losses.

Actively managing your super

We choose to invest with fund managers who actively manage your super, rather than relying on index managers who use passive investment strategies. We believe active managers can take advantage of investment opportunities, and this approach has generated additional returns this year and in previous financial years.

Want to talk about your investments?
