For most working Australians, superannuation is likely to be their main financial asset outside the family home. That means most of us have a vested interest in financial markets and how super funds are performing.
We are taking expert advice from our asset consultant Willis Towers Watson, while working closely with our diverse and renowned group of investment managers to manage these dramatic changes while ensuring continuity of usual business operations. At all times, we remain focused on preserving and building wealth for the legal community’s life in retirement.
It's important not to panic. Superannuation is a long-term investment, while there will always be market ups and downs for investors, it’s long-term returns that count.
Our investment returns and unit prices are updated weekly. See our latest returns and how your specific investment choice has performed. We recommend that you consider returns over the long-term.

Even if you've just reached retirement age, it's likely to have at least another 15+ years of being invested. See our most recent and long-term returns here:
