The Trustee is delighted to be able to report consistently outstanding investment returns for the year ending 30 June 2011, resulting in AvSuper joining the ranks of Australia’s ‘Top 10’ super funds for investment performance this year.
In fact, Selecting Super (part of the Rainmaker group) rated AvSuper’s investment performance 7th (out of 78) super funds this year based on returns for our default investment option.
Members in the Growth investment option (the default for members who do not make a choice) of AvSuper’s accumulation division can look forward to seeing double digit returns on their member statements this year, with a net investment return for the full financial year of 11.1% (after investment fees and taxes). This return compares very favourably to the benchmark and median investment returns of between 8% and 9% for many other super funds, including many of the largest industry and retail super funds in the country.
AvSuper’s size and agility gives us access to proven investment expertise in our Directors, Management team and our external advisers without any of the anonymity of larger funds. When you deal with AvSuper, you can count on dealing with people that know super and know you and your account – not an anonymous call centre.
AvSuper’s boutique, highly personalised and profit-for-members approach mean all investment decisions are made to increase your super assets for the lowest possible cost.
The Trustee’s Investment Committee – chaired by George Fishlock, an employee representative Director (and Air Traffic Controller) – has a rigorous approach to investment governance and a highly disciplined review and monitoring framework which drives investment performance and portfolio positioning.
