“It's more super”
Two of Australia's top performing super funds (Sunsuper and QSuper) merged in February to become Australian Retirement Trust. While we have a new name, we are still dedicated to helping Australian employers meet their superannuation obligations and supporting more than two millions Australians to save for their retirement.
Think of us as a super-super fund with the experience to spot market opportunities… And the ambition to do things a little differently.

Arlanda Express. One of our super-smart investments
When it comes to investing, diversification is important. Our team of investment experts find great opportunities for our members - like the high-speed rail-link in Sweden.
With size comes opportunity, and we have access to assets that are not available to individuals, self-managed super funds (SMSFs), and even other super funds.
Arlanda Express is a city-to-airport train in Sweden, which runs from Stockholm city to Arlanda Airport. ART owns a 25% stake in A-train AB (‘A-Train’), the owner and operator of Arlanda Express. A-Train has moved over 90 million passengers from the highway to rail from its launch.
Investing in Arlanda Express offers1:
- A stable, mature, transportation asset in a country with a strong economy and stable politics
- An attractive, risk-adjusted return that is highly correlated to Swedish GDP and inflation
- Strong earnings visibility, with a history of predictable cash flow growth
- Passenger demand showing resilience to economic conditions
1 Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Australian Retirement Trust adopted the same products, services and investments as Sunsuper from the date of the merger. For further information about the merger, please see the About Us section of our website.
