Mine Super pre-mixed investment options

  • Defensive: 63%
Conservative Balanced

This option has a more even balance between growth and defensive assets compared to the Stable option. It's designed for members who aren't comfortable taking on too much risk and who wish to avoid market fluctuations in the short term, while still gaining some level of capital growth.

  • Defensive: 44%

      Hello BWF,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      We have a comparison page for superannuation funds in Australia. Please take note that the sites listed may measure the funds in a different manner from each other. Some of them may compute returns prior fees while others would be returns after fees. Also, relative definitions may be used such as top-rated funds (which means in some that they have returns of not less than 10%).

      It would still be recommended to talk with your employer to check your super funds’ options or to a qualified financial adviser who will take into consideration your goals and risk appetite.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan
