Performance with purpose

As a top performing* industry fund, we're focused on maximizing the retirement savings of over 1.1 million Australians. Our aim is to make you feel proud of how your money is invested. That's why we're Money magazine's Best Super Fund for 2021.

We deliver top performance* by investing in ways that will improve our communities, economy and environment while divesting from the things that won’t – such as tobacco and thermal coal.

Acting on climate change without sacrificing member returns

We have invested in one of Australia’s largest windfarms - Snowtown 2 in South Australia. As well as helping generate strong long-term investment returns for fund members, the wind farm avoids around 150,000 tonnes of CO2-equivalent emissions each quarter. This equates to powering about 180,000 homes.

Investing in health, education and community

Our investment in the NSW Fire and Rescue training facility in Sydney’s west plays an important role not only in training firefighters but also in boosting the economy of Sydney’s western region.

We have also invested in regional health services through Bendigo Hospital and Sunshine Coast University Hospital. These facilities employ over 7500 health professionals and provide treatment to approximately 160,000 patients per year.

Investing in infrastructure helps diversify our investment portfolio

Aware Super acquired 50% of Vocus Group in partnership with Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA).

A smart investment because we believe the telecommunications sector has significant growth potential, and is aligned to our purpose of delivering strong, sustainable long-term returns to our members while supporting the community in which they live, work and retire.

Building your super balance and affordable housing

We’re continuing to build affordable homes so essential workers can have safe, secure affordable rental housing close to their workplace and other key amenities like healthcare, transport and shops. As the largest build to rent developer in Australia, we have committed to more than 800 essential worker housing units to be rented at 80% of the location’s market rate to teachers, nurses, emergency services or social workers. Returns will come from the rent received from tenants, combined with the potential capital growth on the value of apartments.

Acting on climate change

Divestment from thermal coal mining is one of the key actions we're committed to as part of our Climate Change Portfolio Transition Plan.

Being a responsible owner

We have a duty to protect and grow the value of our members money in a sustainable way. A critical part of this is a responsibility to monitor and engage with companies in which we invest, directly and through the fund managers we appoint.

Learn more about responsible ownership

   A fund that is committed to responsible investing is looking to the future. For me, it plays a huge role with the environmental impact and knowing that we're going to be looked after. Responsibility comes into it and accountability. And that's why I'm comfortable with the work that Aware does. I've got a young family and a Mrs. I hope that I have money set aside for my retirement. And obviously being aware of that now, we have started to throw a lot more into super contributions every week. To have a super fund that reflects my core beliefs and values, I think that's really important in life.
