Investing back into your industries

We don't just talk the talk about supporting our industries; we put our money where our mouth is.

Media Super has been investing in Australian film and TV productions for 10 years now. In partnership with Fulcrum Media Finance, we've supported more than 170 productions, earning a steady 6% p.a. on average for our members. And importantly, the investment has helped to bring local stories to life and create opportunities for Australian actors, filmmakers and crew to ply their craft at home.

We have also invested in the Australian Chamber Orchestra's (ACO) Instrument Fund, which has so far acquired four stringed instruments from the 'Golden Age' of stringed instruments. These are loaned to the ACO and played on stages in Australia and internationally.
