How we stack up over 10 years against the median

Looking at returns and fees separately doesn’t always tell the full story. The net benefit looks at the growth your super is providing in returns and takes out the fees and costs to give you the full picture of how your super is performing.

According to the Net Benefit† modelling by SuperRatings#, if you’d joined TelstraSuper 10 years ago with $100,000 invested in the Growth option and a starting salary of $80,000, you’d be approximately $17,000 better off than the median fund† and approximately $25,000 better off than a median retail super fund†. For the Balanced option you’d be approximately $13,000 better off than the median fund^ and approximately $29,000 better off than a median retail super fund^.
