The BIG difference
Over the past 15 years, TWUSUPER has on average delivered more to members than the average retail super fund*. Get an idea of how much better off you could have been with TWUSUPER over the past 3, 10 or 15 years.
Balanced (MySuper) is our default investment option. If you don’t choose an investment option when you join TWUSUPER, you'll be automatically invested in this option.
The Balanced (MySuper) option may suit members who have an investment timeframe of 5 years or more and are willing to accept a medium level of risk and fluctuations in returns.
When we talk about our Balanced (MySuper) option, we're also referring to the Balanced option for TransPension members, including Pre-Retirement Super Pensions (TTR) and Retirement Super Pensions (Pension Account). They're the same investment option, but we use a different name to comply with Government requirements.
Think before you switch
While switching investment options in volatile markets might give you some comfort now, over the long term it may reduce the earning potential of your super, and that could mean less money in retirement.
For most people, super is a long-term investment. That means you shouldn't let short-term performance influence your long-term investment strategy.
You should only consider switching investment options if it is in line with your long-term investment strategy.
