AvSuper’s Diversified option is a pre-mixed, well-diversified investment option – that means it is invested across multiple asset or investment types.

Investment strategy

The Diversified Index option is designed to cater for choice members with a long term investment horizon (seven years or more) who are seeking passive market returns with low fees and can tolerate high levels of volatility in the short term.

Investment objectives

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.
