You can choose how your super is invested.
1. Let us invest your super based on your age
We'll do the hard work and invest your super based on your age in a Lifestage Fund. A Lifestage Fund is a well-diversified portfolio of assets designed and managed according to your age. Over time the fund will gradually shift to a more conservative asset mix. It generally does this by decreasing its allocation to growth assets and increasing its allocation to conservative assets.
2. Choose your own investment mix
If you prefer to choose your own investment mix you can select from a range of investment options: Growth, Moderate, Conservative and Super Cash.

There is no charge for accepting any rollovers, however before requesting the rollover, you should consider where your future employer contributions will be paid (if your employer contributions are currently being paid to another fund) and check with your other fund(s) to determine whether there are any exit or withdrawal fees for moving your benefit, or other loss of benefits (e.g. insurance cover), noting that you may not receive the same type or level of benefits after the rollover. You may not be covered for injuries or illnesses that have arisen since you took out previous insurance, and you may lose loyalty benefits. There may be limited circumstances where your employer is not required to accept your Choice of Superannuation fund form e.g. if you have already exercised Super Choice in the last 12 months.
