As one of Australia’s largest funds, we have a lot to offer our members. We are a profit-for-member fund – this means we work for you and not for shareholders.
All our profits go back to our members in the way of lower fees and more member services. Take a look at how we compare and join over 800,000 members who have done the same thing.
Super funds calculate their fees in different ways, so make sure that you’re comparing apples with apples. As a profit-for-members fund, we strive to provide the best value for money for our members. Even a small percentage can make a huge difference to your super balance in the long term.
Year after year we continually rank in the top ten best value funds open to everyone^1.

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.
For the five years to 30/6/17 for example, our Growth Option returned 10.5% p.a. and the Balanced Growth Option returned 8.6% p.a^2.
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.I want to see how First State Super is performing
