An industry leader in 10-year investment performance
Our Income account won Money magazine's Pension Fund Manager for 2019.3
QSuper members invested in the Accumulation account balanced option may be better off over the last 10 years, thanks to some clever investment strategies.
With over a century of experience in managing superannuation, QSuper has returned an average of 9.9% for those members over the last 12 months, and 9.5% per year since 2009. Our unique investment approach commenced in 2012, in response to the GFC.
But what does this really mean?
Our smart investment strategies have shifted funds away from reliance on the stock market.
To put this into perspective, some scenarios:
A 50-year-old nurse on average salary who achieved award rises over the past decade is $22,269 better off than if they had been invested in the median Chant West growth option.
A 50-year-old police sergeant on average salary who achieved award rises over the past decade is $25,552 better off than if they had been invested in the median Chant West growth option.
A 50-year-old teacher on average salary who achieved award rises over the past decade is $22,280 better off than if they had been invested in the median Chant West growth option.
This is all money added to a members’ superannuation balance which is preserved for retirement.
Assuming annual pay rises of 3%, standard state public service superannuation contributions, and no insurance premium has been paid from their super, this modelling would mean that:
