Virgin Money Super: Performance, features and fees

The Virgin Money Super LifeStage Tracker investment option is a low-fee super fund which changes your investment mix as you get older, so you're invested in more growth assets while you're young.

Virgin Money Super performance and fees

You'll automatically be invested in the Virgin Money Super LifeStage Tracker investment option when you join the fund. The investments slowly shift from growth, or 'higher-risk' assets, to defensive or 'lower-risk' assets based on your age. If you'd prefer to choose a different investment option instead of the LifeStage Tracker, you can choose your own mix from a range of options (below) any time after joining.

What investment options are available with Virgin Money Super?

Virgin Money Super offers two different ways to invest: LifeStage Tracker or Choice. The Virgin Money Super LifeStage Tracker is the default option and invests your super in line with your age on your behalf. Virgin Money Super Choice investment options allow you to choose one or a mixture of asset-based portfolios.

Note that if you don't select which option you'd like to go with after joining the fund, you'll be invested in the LifeStage Tracker, which is Virgin Money Super's MySuper-authorised product.

Investment option 1: Virgin Money Super LifeStage Tracker

Your super will be invested in a pre-mixed, diversified fund with exposure to a range of asset classes including local and international shares, property, fixed interest. The amount of your super that's invested in growth assets (like shares) will be higher while you're young, and automatically gradually reduce as you get older and closer to retirement.

Investment option 2: Virgin Money Super Choice investment options

If you'd prefer to select your own investment option, you can choose one of the following options instead of the LifeStage Tracker option. The Choice investment options are still managed on your behalf and invest in a mix of different asset classes, but the asset allocation doesn't change according to your age.

You can create your own investment mix by selecting a few of the different Virgin Money Super Choice options and choosing how much of your balance to invest in each one.
