Comparing super can seem complicated but it doesn't have to be. Having the right tools and information makes it easier to choose the fund to suit your needs. Get started today.

Independent comparison tool

Super funds can present information in different ways making it difficult to compare. This is where third-party research agencies can help out. 

Independent research company Chant West allows you to compare key features of over 200 different funds on an ‘apples with apples’ basis. You'll receive a detailed report comparing First State Super and other funds you select.

We are proud to have picked up a number of awards and performed consistently well with our industry’s rating agencies.

Investment performance

A super fund’s investment returns are a vital part of how they deliver value to their members and how you grow your superannuation savings.

As one of the largest super funds in Australia, we’re always looking for opportunities to use the benefits of scale, to reduce costs and to invest in projects that contribute to a better future for all Australians.
