Super performance

Find out how your super is performing

Media Super publishes daily, monthly and financial year to date investment performance to help our members understand how their super savings are growing.

When you're looking at investment performance, it's important to remember that superannuation is a long-term investment.

Financial markets can move up and down over shorter timeframes. You need to consider the longer term performance of an option over five to 10 years or more, not just the last month or one year.

Please note, the Growth Plus, Indexed Diversified, Overseas Shares, Australian Shares, Property and Diversified Fixed Interest options commenced on 14 February 2022 therefore crediting rate information for longer time periods are not applicable.

Investment performance is based on the crediting rate, which is the return minus investment fees, taxes, and until 31 January 2020, the percentage-based administration fee. Excludes fees and costs that are deducted directly from members’ accounts. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
