#1 fund for weathering market ups and downs3
SuperRatings' Pension of the Year 4 years in a row4
QSuper has taken out the SuperRatings Pension of the Year award, the fourth year in a row we have won the award on behalf of our members.
Each year, SuperRatings and Lonsec recognise the achievements of individual Australian super funds across a range of categories, after analysing more than 182 pension products.
As well as being awarded Pension of the Year for the best value for money pension offering, QSuper also won the Smooth Ride Award for the third year running and was a finalist in the MyChoice Super of the Year and MySuper Fund of the Year awards.
QSuper Chief Executive Officer Charles Woodhouse said it was an honour to take out the Pension of the Year award.
“We are humbled to receive the Pension of the Year award on behalf of our members for the fourth year running,” Mr Woodhouse said.
“This year we introduced Lifetime Pension to the market, an industry-first product that gives our members an income for life and helps them retire with more certainty and confidence. We are thrilled with the response we have received so far.
“Thank you to the QSuper team for their dedication, and thank you to SuperRatings for this recognition,” Mr Woodhouse said.
Mr Woodhouse also said it was an honour to win the Smooth Ride award for the third year in a row and thanked SuperRatings for their recognition of our unique investment strategy and strong outcomes.
"The name of this award embodies what we aim to achieve for our members: strong long-term returns with fewer ups and downs. This approach has continued to hold up strongly through a changing investment landscape," Mr Woodhouse said.
"By dialling down our strategic weight to bonds and dialling up our allocations in other diversifying asset classes, our members have continued to enjoy a smoother ride over the long term."
The awards cap off another strong year for QSuper on behalf of our members and employers.
