   Being part of a top performing fund is important because I'm getting towards retirement age now, so I like to know that when I'm retiring, that I'll be looked after. I've been with [the fund] for probably 25 years. So to know they're doing well and they're investing back into the community is a really important thing for me. If Aware is investing in their future and my future, that means they're going to be around for a long time. And then members are going to stay with Aware for a long time, which means that the fund will get bigger and better and stronger.
