Choosing the right super investment options for you

Learn more about our investment options and how they can best suit your retirement goals and how much risk you're comfortable with.

Lifecycle Investment Strategy

This is our default investment option for Accumulation accounts, and we've designed it so you don't have to do anything. With our Lifecycle Investment Strategy, we automatically change your investments based on your age, helping you get the most out of your super at every stage of life.

  • Suited for your life stage

    When you’re younger and trying to grow your balance, we’ll automatically aim for growth. When you’re nearing retirement, we gradually switch you to a more stable strategy that protects your hard-earned savings.

  • Leave the hard work to us

    Until you turn 55, we invest your super in the Balanced Pool to grow over the long term. From age 55 onwards, we'll gradually transfer your super to our lower-risk options – the Retirement Pool and Cash Pool.

Diversified options

If you want more control over your investment strategy, we have multi-asset investment options that you can choose from. They offer diversification by investing in a few different asset classes (like shares, infrastructure, and fixed income) at once.

Will these suit me?

If you'd like a bit more control over where your super is invested, our diversified options may suit you. Choose to invest in one or more of the options we've designed and manage for you.

Managed by experts

Our diversified options are actively managed by a team of qualified professionals and can give you the confidence to choose your own investment strategy.

Single asset class options

If you want to further diversify your investment strategy, our indexed and single class assets options are separate investment options you can mix and match to suit your needs and risk profile.

Who are these for?

These single asset options are designed for members who'd like to further diversify their investment strategy and take more control of where their super is invested.

More choice for you

  1. Past performance isn't a reliable indicator of future performance. Investment returns are the compound annualised return, and are net of investment fees and costs, transaction costs, and investment taxes. Returns shown are for Accumulation accounts. Returns up to 28 February 2022 are for Sunsuper, and after that are for Australian Retirement Trust using the same products.
  2. This risk level is based on the standard risk measure (SRM).
