Australian superannuation funds
Here's a comprehensive list of super fund providers in Australia, including industry and retail funds.
What are superannuation companies?
Superannuation companies, more commonly referred to as superannuation funds, provide products to help invest and grow your retirement savings while you're still working. According to Finder research, there are 23.2 million superannuation accounts in Australia from a total of 145 fund providers.
Superannuation is compulsory for Australian employees, and you need a dedicated superannuation fund to put the money into (it can't just go into your standard bank account). Super companies offer these dedicated products. As of March 2023, the money held in Australian super funds totaled $3.5 trillion, according to the ASFA.
What are industry super funds?
Industry super funds are not-for-profit funds that were originally reserved for workers in a particular industry, but are now open to all Australians. These funds are owned and run by members, with profits going back into the fund to benefit members. They usually only exist to provide superannuation products.
What are retail super funds?
Retail funds are often owned by a bank, insurance provider or another type of large financial institution. As well as superannuation products, they often offer other financial products and services such as bank accounts, mortgage products and insurance. Profits are distributed among shareholders as well as put back into the fund.
What is a self managed super fund?
A self managed super fund (SMSF) is an option for people who want to manage their superannuation themselves, instead of putting it into a superannuation fund. You can create your own SMSF with up to 4 members (usually family members) and invest your retirement savings how you want to. However, SMSFs are expensive, tricky and time-consuming to run.
