Strategic Asset Allocation changes

Support for retirees covid

At Media Super, we offer a range of investment options to suit our members goals, time frames and their preferred levels of risk and we invest across a wide range of asset classes including shares, property, infrastructure, private equity, fixed interest and cash both in Australia and overseas.

Each investment option has set investment objectives and we review these objectives every year to ensure they meet members’ needs. When we do this, we look at a range of factors including the age of our members, the economic environment and how we expect different types of assets to perform.

We have made the following changes effective 29 September 2023:
