How does legalsuper compare?

legalsuper has a wealth of experience supporting those within the legal community to protect and grow their wealth. Find out more about how we compare to other super funds.

Investment performance

Strong performance over the short and long term
legalsuper’s default investment option for Employer-sponsored members is MySuper balanced; this is where members will be invested if they don't make an investment choice. The below chart shows how our MySuper balanced option compares with the industry median.

These returns are net of investment fees and tax, gross of administration fees.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance and should not be the sole factor considered when selecting a fund. As at 30 June 2019, most members were invested in the MySuper balanced investment option which has been available since 1 July 2013. Prior to 1 July 2013, it was known as the Growth option.

The industry median is as advised by SuperRatings. SuperRatings is an independent research provider for the superannuation industry. Its research helps super funds monitor and improve their performance and benchmark themselves against their peers
