Top 10 returns continue

2 Jun 2017 By Media Super Team

Media Super is continuing to deliver strong returns for our members, with both the super and pension Balanced investment options in the top 10 of Australian super funds.*

Our Balanced (MySuper) option – in which most members are invested – returned 11.12%^ for the financial year to 30 April 2017, ahead of the median return of 9.93%.*

The pension Balanced option also continues to perform strongly, returning 12.05%^ for the financial year to date, ahead of the median return of 10.64%.**


With the French election (the last of the major global elections for 2016-17) behind us, we are cautiously optimistic that our strong, first quartile performance will continue and that we will satisfy your return expectations for the financial year. 

Media Super’s Balanced investment option is invested across shares (Australian and international), property and infrastructure, fixed interest investments, our film financing fund and cash. Plus we have portfolio insurance in place to reduce the impact of losses if share markets fall heavily. We are one of the few funds that has this type of insurance in place. 

Performance information for other investment options is available for super and pension.  

We have delivered strong investment returns over the past 12 months and we’re confident that we’ve got the right investment strategy to maximise your returns in the long term.
