Super is basically a savings account that generally isn’t touched until we retire but it’s worth checking its performance regularly. Did you know the money in your superannuation account is invested? And how it’s invested, will result in how much you have in your account at retirement. Whether that’s decades or years away, it’s worth knowing how it works because you can change your super investment options.

We’ll take you through the basics of investments, how super is invested, the different options and some actions to take today.
