How do you decide which super fund
is right for you?

A good place to start is by comparing what each fund offers, so you can think about which one best meets your needs. 

Points to compare: 

  • Investment choices, including how your money will be invested and the choices available to you.
  • Fees and charges that will be deducted from your super balance.
  • Insurance options and how much they cost.
  • The services provided to you.

How do you know what each fund offers?

Chant West2 is an independent super research and consultancy firm. They conduct research on most of the leading super and pension funds, and provide an online tool that allows you to quickly compare the key features of each. 
 

Chant West call it AppleCheck, because they’ve ranked all the funds against the same criteria, so you can “compare apples with apples”. They sum up their overall view of each fund and award a rating of 1 to 5 Apples. The rating takes six main criteria into account: organisation, investments, fees, insurance, administration and member services.
 

You’ll be able to get a clear picture of how we stack up against different funds using general criteria or tailored to be relevant to you. You can also get a copy of the report by email. When comparing your apples, we also want you to be aware that insurance premiums are changing on 1 August 2016. The new rates are split into Standard and White Collar.
