About this episode:

In today’s episode of The Australian Finance Podcast, Kate and Owen deep dive into the abundance of investment choices you have nowadays when it comes to your Super, how they work and why you might consider them.

To do this, we’re going to look into your typical Balanced style fund, asset based portfolios (e.g. Aussie shares only), ethical choices and the DIY options available to you. We’re using AustralianSuper & Australian Ethical as our examples.

You actually have a choice when it comes to your Super, and most large Super funds provide a range of different portfolios to choose from. No one size fits all – but hopefully this breakdown helps you ask better questions and find the right information. Keep in mind that there’s often more choice in the larger industry Super funds, so if you’re currently with a smaller Super provider, they may not offer all these options.

We also want to alert you that the government has launched a new Super comparison tool within your MyGov account called MySuper. Easy way to get comparing today!
