Top performing super funds

We’re one of Australia’s top performing super funds for 2023

In the 2022/23 financial year, we achieved positive returns for all investment options and outperformed many larger funds.

Our Balanced Accumulation option returned 9.44%, while our Balanced Pension option delivered a 10.14% return.

Four out of five accumulation investment options delivered returns higher than their industry median1, which is the industry performance benchmark. This can help you compare our investment returns against other funds.

A top performing super fund

First Super has again ranked amongst Australia’s top performing super funds in 2023.

Our Balanced Accumulation option is in the top 10 Balanced Accumulation products by 3-year return, according to rankings by superannuation ratings agency SuperRatings to 30 June 2023.

This continues our track record of strong performance. In 2021/22 our Balanced Accumulation option was ranked number 2 for one-year returns by SuperRatings.

Strong long-term returns

These short-term figures are only part of the story, because super is a long-term investment.

Our 10-year average return to 30 June 2023 for our Balanced Accumulation option is 7.83%, and 8.37% p.a. for our Balanced Pension option, proving our strong long-term performance.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

We offer a range of super investment options for you to choose from, depending on your investment objectives, timeframe and risk profile.
