On 1 July 2015, AvSuper is adding a new pre-mixed investment option called the Balanced Growth option to the range of member investment choice options available to those members who wish to exercise member investment choice*.

Introducing Balanced Growth

The Balanced Growth option will comprise of investment exposure to 65% growth assets and 35% defensive assets. It is designed for members who want a reasonable exposure to growth assets balanced by a slightly lower weighting to defensive assets, with slightly lower expected investment risk than the default Growth (MySuper) investment option.  The Trustee considers that the new Balanced Growth investment option will best suit members approaching retirement who are looking to modestly reduce investment risk for their retirement savings, while continuing to obtain some exposure to growth assets.

The new investment option commences from 1 July 2015 and more detailed information will be available on our website from that time.

The right investment option for you will depend on your retirement needs, risk comfort and age. You can change your investment options by completing our Nominate /change investment options form, or you can change your investment options yourself via AOL (AvSuper Online). Remember you do not have to make a choice, and if you don’t choose, your super will be automatically invested in AvSuper’s default investment options (being the Growth (MySuper) option for accumulation members).
