We are one of Australia’s largest industry funds providing superannuation, advice and retirement solutions to those who teach, nurse, care, respond and help others in our communities. 

We aim to deliver strong long-term returns and keep our fees low, so members can retire with more. We have a diverse range of investment options and we  provide members with access to advice about their super and the investment options available to them.

The way we invest benefits members as well as the communities in which they live work and retire. With $91bn in assets we often invest directly in assets that create jobs and benefit communities.

We believe in the value of advice and the difference it can make to our members
retirement outcomes and are proud to offer members access to the over 220 qualified financial planners across 150 locations.  We also host over 300 free seminars across Australia each year – some in the workplace and others in community-based locations.

We have achieved the highest platinum performance rating from SuperRatings for the past decade. ChantWest, another independent rating agency has awarded us their highest 5-star rating and the Best Fund for Integrity 2019.

We’re dedicated to helping our members Feel future ready
