Our approach to fees

CareSuper is a ‘profit for members’ fund committed to maximising members’ retirement savings. Our fees are structured only to cover costs, not to make a profit for shareholders.

CareSuper always aims to minimise investment fees, but we’re also focused on achieving strong long-term returns, which have a significant impact on members’ account balances. This combination of fees and investment returns is why we highlight the importance of ‘net benefit’.

CareSuper's net benefit outperformance

What matters more – fees or investment performance?

It's about getting the balance right. A strong net benefit performance can make a world of difference to your super balance.

Over 10 years, CareSuper's Balanced option returned $26,000 more than the average net benefit of surveyed retail balanced options.

Earnings are over 1, 3, 5, 7 and 10 years as at 30 June 2017.
