Aware Super has been recognised with top ratings and awards
from the super industry’s leading rating agencies

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 delivering strong long-term outcomes for members and providing quality financial advice.

It’s this commitment that has led us to win many superannuation awards and to be judged highly by our industry’s ratings agencies.

We exist for our members, rather than to win awards, but it feels good to be recognised by our industry peers.

‡‡Based on the DEXXAR Industry Market Share Report June 2023 (includes VicSuper which is part of Aware Super).

We are one of Australia's best performing super funds
