Spaceship Super performance and fees

You'll automatically be invested in the GrowthX option when you join Spaceship, however you're able to switch investment options at any time.

What are the key features of Spaceship Super?

Spaceship offers the following features and benefits to its members:

  • Two investment choices. Spaceship offers two different investment options, both with a heavy investment allocation towards shares.
  • A focus on technology. Spaceship's tagline is "invest where the world is going, not where it's been". This reflects the fund's preference for investing in technology stocks rather than in other asset classes.
  • Long-term investment strategy. Spaceship's investment options, GrowthX and Global Index, are both high risk due to their heavy investment in shares. They're designed to suit the needs of members with a long-term investment timeframe of ten years or more.
  • Online application and rollover. You can sign up for a Spaceship account online and easily roll over your existing super balance into your new account.
  • Designed for 20 to 40-year-olds. While you're able to join Spaceship at any age, Spaceship is targeted at Australians in the 20–40 years demographic and all investment decisions are designed to suit the financial objectives of people in this age range.
  • App-based fund. Spaceship offers a modern app where you can keep up to date with your super, easily make contributions and track performance.
