How can you compare?

Make sure you compare apples with apples

Super funds have different fees and they can all affect your balance now and into retirement. So when you’re comparing with other super funds, make sure you take into account all the fees and costs that apply.

Returns are important

Of course, fees aren’t the only thing you should consider when it comes to super. Our returns are always provided net of fees and taxes so you can get a clear view of how your super is performing.

Defined Benefit accounts are based on a formula, so fees, insurance costs and investment returns don’t directly affect your benefit. The exception is if you’ve bought additional insurance cover. These premiums are calculated as a weekly cost per unit of insurance, and deducted from your attached Accumulation account each month.

2. This figure comprises of the investment fee and indirect cost ratio which are based on the fees and costs for the financial year ended 30 June 2019 and the administration fee. The total fees and any other applicable fees are deducted daily from the unit price before the unit price is declared and may differ from future fees and costs.
3. Some of our investment options incur additional costs related to property, borrowing or trading. These costs are not charged by QSuper, but instead incurred within underlying investments and deducted from investment returns prior to calculation of daily unit prices. These costs are not included in the total fee and are disclosed in the Accumulation Account guide and Income Account guide.
4. From 1 July 2018, the administration fee cap changed from $1,000 to $900 per annum.
