Strategy Explained

MySuper is a lifestage investment option designed for you if you don’t want to choose your own investments.

MySuper offers three age-based investment options or “lifestages”. Your super savings are automatically invested in the option that suits your age*. Then, as you get closer to finishing work your option is changed to reduce the level of risk.

Here’s how it works:

If you’re under 40 and don’t let us know where you’d like your super invested, your money will be automatically invested in the “Building lifestage” option. This option invests 100% in high growth assets like shares. Over the longer term these types of assets have the potential to provide good returns for your super.

As the pie graphs below show, when you reach age 40 we’ll switch your super savings into our "Growing lifestage" option. This option includes some lower-risk investments like fixed interest, bonds and cash. This helps lower your overall level of risk and smooth out some of the short-term ups and downs in investment markets.

This process is then repeated at age 56. At this point your investments will be switched into our "Consolidating lifestage" option. This option offers a lower level of risk again, doing more to protect the value as you head closer to retirement.

* Your age is determined as at 1 July each year based on your age next birthday. Changes to your investment options are also made on 1 July. Changes do not actually take place on your birthday.  If you don't or your employer does not advise us of your date of birth, your account will be invested in the Consolidating lifestage investment option.
