Are you unsure which investment options are right for you in retirement?

Deciding which option/s is right for your retirement savings is a personal decision that depends on factors such as your tolerance to risk, and how long you are investing for. It’s important to remember that even in retirement your super is a long-term investment, with your funds often needing to last 20 years or more.

We offer a range of tools and calculators which will assist you in determining what your risk appetite is and which investment options are right for you. Alternatively, you can make an appointment with Club Super Financial Planning by calling the Club Super Contact Centre on 1300 369 330. Club Super Financial Planning are able to assist you with a full spectrum of advice across both superannuation and non-superannuation issues.+

Changing your investment options can be done through Member Online or by completing the Change to Member Investment Choice Form.

* The standard risk measure is based on industry guidance to allow members to compare investment options that are expected to deliver a similar number of negative annual returns over any 20 year period. The standard risk measure is not a complete assessment of all forms of investment risk, for instance it does not detail what the size of a negative return could be or the potential for a positive return to not be sufficient for a member to meet their objectives. Further, it does not take into account the impact of administration fees and tax on the likelihood of a negative return.

**The International Shares exposure has a benchmark hedging level of 25% however, the actual hedging level will vary from time to time at the discretion of the Trustee.

^ The average crediting rates are calculated for the 5 or 10 year period to 30 June 2018 (or shorter period where the option has not been available for that period). “Average” is the compound average effective rate of net earnings of the investment option over the period.

#  The TTR Balanced option (subject to tax on earnings) was newly established at that time, so has no return history.
