To help grow your super savings, we manage a diversified portfolio, which means investing in a mixture of different types of assets.

For the year to 30 June 2021, shares (Australian and International equities) had high returns as share markets rebounded strongly from COVID-19-related lows. But for members in our diversified options, other investments also helped to deliver great, positive returns.

Property

Our industrial and residential investments were strong performers for the year. A few years ago, we had made the decision to reduce our investment in the retail sector, which meant we were not as affected by the poor performance of retail during COVID. Helping to grow your retirement savings over the long term, unlisted property investments have delivered an average annual return of over 11% for the 5-year period to 30 June 2021^1.

Private Equity

Our Private Equity asset class performed very well throughout the year, with investments in Information Technology and Healthcare companies thriving in the current environment. Helping grow your retirement savings over the long term, the Private Equity asset class has delivered an average annual return of around 15% for the 5-year period to 30 June 2021^1.

Infrastructure and real assets

Positive performance was led by strong capital growth in our direct investments with an increased investor interest for leased agricultural land and higher than expected performance through COVID volatility. Helping grow your retirement savings over the long term, this asset class has delivered an average annual return of over 11% for the 5-year period to 30 June 2021^1.
