AvSuper’s Balanced Growth option is a pre-mixed, well-diversified investment option – that means it is invested across multiple asset or investment types.
The Balanced Growth Option is also one of the default investment options for Income Streams – if you do not make an investment choice, your Income Stream balance will automatically be divided into two options (the Balanced Growth and Cash options) to give an equal balance of growth and defensive assets.
Designed for members who want reasonable exposure to growth assets balanced by a slightly lower weighting to defensive assets.
To achieve a return, after tax and fees, which exceeds Consumer Price Index (CPI) increases by at least 2.5% pa (for super members) or 3.0% (for income stream members) over rolling ten-year periods.
