If you’re an employer, you’d know that like all Australians, your employees want to be financially secure in retirement.

Choosing the right super fund can make all the difference. You want a fund that puts members first with lower administration and investment fees and costs, solid long-term investment returns and flexible insurance options. You want award-winning customer service, great online tools and quality financial advice that’s easy to access.  

When comparing super funds, it’s useful to think about what’s important to you and your employees, and what will make a difference to your employee’s retirement in the long run.

Here’s what to consider when you’re comparing super funds:

Compare performance results

It’s important to compare how your super fund performs against the median over the long-term, particularly over periods of market volatility.

Compare fees

While lower fees and costs are generally good, consider what employees are actually getting for their money. And, don’t forget to look at the sum total of fees; including administration fees, investment fees and indirect costs.

Compare employer support

Are you getting the great customer service, online tools, education resources and support that you and your employees need?

Compare employee plans

Can your current provider offer the ability to tailor your employee plans specific to your employee base?

Compare insurance

The insurance market has shifted in recent years and the best competitive premiums need to be considered along with the level of default cover amounts offered with employee plans.

Compare financial stability

Is your current fund financially stable with a low and transparent cost structure and a strong membership base?
