The [Banking] Royal Commission’s work, so far, has shown conduct by financial services entities that has brought public attention and condemnation. Too often, the reasons why seem to be greed – the pursuit of short term profit at the expense of basic standards of honesty. How else is charging continuing advice fees to the dead to be explained?1. (The Honourable Justice Kenneth Madison Hayne AC QC)

The Royal Commission has exposed just how much retail and company-run super funds have taken advantage of their members’ trust. This is why thousands of Australians are getting out and switching to their Industry SuperFund.

We invest in you, not shareholders

When you belong to a fund that’s run only to benefit you, you’re in good hands. At Media Super, we do everything we can to keep the costs of managing your super low, and return all profits to members like you.

Low fees, solid returns

At just $1.25 a week plus 0.15% p.a. of your account balance (with a $600 cap), Media Super is committed to keeping our fees low. In fact, our fees are among the most competitive around, and not just against bank-owned and retail funds, but against other industry funds too2 – which leaves more for you in retirement.

And, Media Super focuses on delivering outstanding returns to our members over the long term, with our Balanced investment option returning, on average, 8.48% per annum since its inception3.

Your industry, your profits, in your hands

Another one of our key priorities is investing directly in the print, media, entertainment and arts industries. By funding programs, internships and awards that celebrate our talented members, we’re helping to build and nurture your industry’s future.
