$100M MILESTONE FOR AUSTRALIAN FILM & TV PRODUCTIONS

Last night, Media Super announced a major investment milestone for Australian film and television production. At an exclusive preview screening of soon-to-be released feature film, Lion*, we announced that our investment in Australian productions has now passed $100 million.

Media Super CEO Graeme Russell said that the fund was extremely proud to have supported more than 70 Australian film and television projects, producing stable investment returns as well as work opportunities for members.

A SOUND START TO THE FINANCIAL YEAR

Media Super’s Balanced investment options – both MySuper and pension – are invested across equities (Australian and overseas), property and infrastructure, and fixed interest investments – and we’re confident we’ve got the right strategy to maximise your returns over the long term. 

In the first quarter of 2016-17 the Balanced (MySuper) investment option, in which most members are invested, returned 3.41%.^ This is a sound performance in what is a challenging investment environment. 

WE’RE STICKING TO THE SCRIPT

At Media Super we’re confident we’ve got a good, solid script for investing your super to maximise your returns over the long-term – and we’re sticking to it!

Investment markets go through cycles, as the past financial year has shown.

We saw a Chinese stock market crash which led to falls in other global markets early in 2016, commodity prices (including oil and iron ore) fell, and in late June further stock market falls in response to the British referendum.  

IS YOUR RETIREMENT STILL ON TRACK?

With the new financial year come and gone, it’s a good time to make sure your pension is still on track. If you haven’t reviewed your pension strategy in over 12 months, it’s worth making sure your financials are still keeping up with your lifestyle. 

We recommend that you talk with one of our Financial Planners* to make sure you’re still on track, or call our Helpline Advisers# for limited advice over the phone. 

The impact of the Brexit on your investment returns

On Thursday 23 June, the UK held a referendum on whether it should remain in or leave the European Union (EU).  Ahead of the vote there was uncertainty and understandable concern about the impacts on global share markets and the flow-on effects to super and pension accounts. 

Following the result in favour of the ‘Leave’ vote on Friday 24 June, most global share-markets have fallen and the British Pound has weakened significantly.
