Low fees^1

The fees you pay for your super today can make a big difference to the lifestyle you get to enjoy in retirement. That’s why we keep our fees as low as possible for our members.    

In fact, Aware Super’s total annual fees are 30% lower than the average of some retail super funds.

The table shows the average difference of fees of the main growth multi-manager investment options surveyed in December 2019 (97 Super Funds and 19 Retail Funds (master trust funds) tracked by Chant West.

Strong, long-term returns^2

You want your super investments to be working hard towards your future. So it’s reassuring to know we’re consistently delivering strong, long-term returns for our members. In fact, you could be thousands of dollars better off with Aware Super over 15 years, compared with the retail super funds average.
