It can be difficult to choose the best super fund, but if you’re looking for a fund that regularly receives top ratings and awards from independent ratings agencies, you’re in the right place.

Aware Super is one of Australia’s largest industry superannuation funds.‡‡

When you choose to invest your super with us, you’re choosing a fund that’s committed to offering safe and secure superannuation and quality financial advice.

It’s this commitment that has led us to winning many awards and being judged consistently highly by the superannuation industry’s ratings agencies.

And although we don’t exist to win awards, it feels good to be recognised by industry peers for doing what we exist for - building a better future for all Australians.
