ANZ Staff Super uses the Rainmaker Benchmarking Service to compare the relative performance of its investment options against other funds that offer similar investment options. Performance is assessed monthly and ANZ Staff Super’s net investment returns are reported in their respective performance quartile.  For instance, a 1st Quartile ranking is where ANZ Staff Super’s performance is ranked by Rainmaker to be in the top 25% of results sampled.

Important Note: Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. This investment returns information has been prepared for the general information of members of the Scheme. It does not take into account any member’s individual financial objectives, financial situation or needs.

We recommend that you seek help from a licensed financial adviser before acting on any of this information. While all due care and diligence has been taken in the preparation of this information, the Trustee reserves the right to correct any errors or omissions.

Protecting members’ interests

Protecting your interests is our highest priority.

Superannuation is a long-term investment and we are here to generate market competitive long-term returns. We build our portfolios to deliver strong returns, to be robust over a range of shorter-term market conditions, and to be sustainable over the long term.

Our comparative performance has been strong with consistent first and second quartile investment performance and occasional third quartile performance. Quartile rankings move around over time and are driven by the amount of risk taken.

We align the amount of risk we take with our membership age profile. Our MySuper option is Balanced Growth and has a risk level of medium to high. Some funds with very young membership profiles offer a higher risk MySuper (default) option.

Our Balanced Growth option is a diversified option that invests across a range of asset classes. Around 57% of this option is invested in shares and property, around 27% in alternative assets and the remainder in fixed interest securities and cash.

You are not limited to just one of the options; members who are looking to customise their portfolio from a risk perspective can select any combination of each of our three pre-mixed investment options. You can combine options and/or choose to direct your future contributions to a different option or combination of options than how your accumulated super is invested. This allows members greater choice in how their super is invested beyond the three pre-mixed options available.

Find out about our approach to investments and how we both invest for strong returns and invest sustainably.
