‘I chose industry super for more than the feel-good factor’

‘I chose industry super for more than the feel-good factor’

Julie Lander

The trademarks of industry super. These are three things CareSuper lives and breathes:

  1. Industry funds are run to benefit members, no one else. That’s not a given for all super funds. Some, like bank-owned super, walk a tightrope to generate profits for super members and profits for shareholders. We don’t. Our decisions – and our profits – are all about you.
  2. Proactive investment management. Take our approach to investing. We make active investment choices, hunting for the best opportunities to add that bit extra to your return. (We could just follow the ASX and other indices like a cheaper fund, but we know you expect more.) See how this pays off.
  3. We help our members reach their financial goals. We strongly believe in the benefits of financial advice, which is why we offer access to this service, but any fees are disclosed and agreed to upfront.There are hidden costs and our planners receive no incentives to sell you advice. It’s either part of your membership or fee for service. Full stop.

The difference between us and ‘Industry SuperFunds’

Ok, you’ve probably seen these ads, and maybe you even ‘compared the pair’ to choose CareSuper. But while Industry SuperFunds is behind these campaigns, it’s not actually a super fund itself. It’s the collective voice of 16 industry super funds, including ours.

Together, we work on research, policy, marketing and advocacy initiatives to improve the superannuation system for everyone. Our shared goal is to give you the best possible retirement.
