How we stack up over 10 years against the median

Choosing the right super fund now can make a big difference in retirement. But 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 $15,000 better off than the median fund* and approximately $27,000 better off than a median retail super fund*. For the Balanced option you’d be  approximately $12,000 better off than the median fund^ and  approximately $29,000 better off than a median retail super fund^.

#Comparisons are modelled by SuperRatings, commissioned by TelstraSuper. Modelled outcomes show the average difference in ‘net benefit’, a measure of investment earnings after fees and taxes have been taken out. Net benefit modelling results are based on a starting balance of $100,000 and salary of $80,000 invested over 10 years. No adjustments have been made to the figures to take into account the effect of inflation on purchasing power since this time.

*The results compare TelstraSuper’s Balanced option with the median of the balanced options of funds tracked by SuperRatings (253 funds) in respect of the net benefit. The results also compare TelstraSuper’s Balanced option with  the median Master Trust Retail super funds tracked by SuperRatings (123 funds) in respect of net benefit that have a comparable balanced option to the TelstraSuper Balanced option. Comparisons are made over a 10 year performance history, taking into account historical earnings and fees – excluding contribution, entry, exit, insurance and additional adviser fees that may have been charged over that period. See full assumptions here. As comparisons are made against the median, outcomes will vary between individual fund comparisons..
