Growth

The Growth option in detail - for super members

Return objective

  • To maximise long-term investment returns, accepting that there may be fluctuations in returns over shorter periods.
  • To outperform an average annual return of CPI + 3.5% pa over rolling 10-year periods (net of all fees and tax except the weekly $1.30 administration fee).

Risk profile

Predominantly invests in to shares and property and therefore carries a higher level of investment risk. Short-term fluctuations will occur, but higher investment returns are expected over longer periods. This option is likely to produce a negative return in 4 to 6 years in every 20 years.

Risk level: 

High

Investor profile

Will suit investors looking for higher returns over the long-term, but who are prepared to accept large fluctuations in investment performance.

Minimum suggested time frame for holding the investment is 10 years.
