finder money podcast #48: Super tips for young Australians

Marc Terrano 23 November 2017

This week we had an enlightening chat with Joshua Wilson and Mathew Keeley from GROW Super. GROW Super is a superannuation fund with a modern philosophy which uses technology to help you get the most out your super. It allows you to easily make voluntary contributions using your spare change with their roundup feature. They also use Dimensional Fund Advisors to manage your money and offers seven portfolios to choose from. They also offer insurance which is easily customisable through the app. In this episode we talked about:

  • How you can guide where you invest with GROW Super
  • Why Joshua and Mathew think voluntary contributions and not fees are the most important factor in superannuation
  • How to decide whether or not to make voluntary contributions to your super
  • What Joshua and Mathew think are the main issues in the super industry
  • The process to go through when choosing your investment option in Super
  • What to watch out for with Super
  • The reason why having more than one super account can be disadvantageous to you
  • Why you shouldn't check your super balance every day
  • What Mat thinks about investing super in index funds
  • Why GROW Super chose to partner with Dimensional Fund Advisors
  • What is in the future for GROW
  • Josh and Mat's answers to the 'finquisition': What they invest in and the best/worst financial advice they've received
