How we manage your super

We invest in many different investment markets around the world using a range of investment strategies. Many of our investment options have allocations to a diversified mix of investments, which minimises the overall impact should any given investment perform poorly.

Different investment markets and strategies require different expertise, so we appoint professional investment managers who specialise in particular areas.

How we monitor performance

We engage the expertise of professional investment consultants JANA to assist us in reviewing the investment objectives and strategies as well as monitoring the performance and capability of all our investment managers.

The role of investment managers

We set target returns for each class of investment. It’s the role of the investment manager to meet or exceed these return targets whilst working within the risk guidelines we set.
