Join Australia's Number One Performing Super Fund

Life is full of twists and turns. New jobs, new cities, new adventures. Wherever you or your staff go it’s important to have a super fund that moves with you. A fund that puts you first with competitive fees, comprehensive insurance options and consistent investment performance. 

Hostplus is the number 1 super fund in Australia. Number 1 in the long term. Number 1 in the short term. 

According to leading superannuation analysts, Chant West and SuperRatings, the Balanced Option returned an impressive 13.2% (after all fees and charges) to members accounts for the 2016-17 financial year. 

In addition, as of 30 June 2017 the default investment choice, favoured by the majority of the fund’s members has delivered a market leading performance over the last 1, 3, 5 and 7 years.

You won’t find returns like that under the mattress or in your bank account for that matter. 

At the time of the rate announcement Warren Chant, Director of Chant West said that the 2016-17 financial year had been an excellent year for super funds. He also commended Hostplus on its consistent historical performance. 

“While much of the focus this time of the year is on the financial year result, longer-term performance is far more important to Hostplus’ investment team. The fund’s investments team, led by Chief Investment Officer Sam Sicilia, has done an exceptional job for their members for a very long time.

“Hostplus’ Balanced Option has consistently been a top-ten performer” Mr Chant said.

In part, the performance can be attributed to Hostplus’ long-term strategic investment in areas including property, infrastructure and private equity which have typically outperformed cash and bonds. 

Hostplus CEO David Elia was happy to highlight these results have not come about by chance.

“While this year’s results are pleasing, this investment formula isn’t new to Hostplus, nor has it been the result of good luck.

“Our default MySuper Balanced Option offers a diversified portfolio across a wide range of asset classes that has achieved top quartile performance over all investment horizons.  It is this diversification which serves to protect our members from market downturns and maximise their returns.”

Not content to rest on their laurels, the investment team are already looking towards the future. Following the fund’s previous push into infrastructure, Hostplus has turned towards the exciting world of Venture Capital. And with more than $350 million already committed to the space, they’re becoming a major player on the Australian scene. 

The fund’s VC portfolio features an array of emerging biomedical projects including allergy vaccines, Parkinson’s management devices and a new class of antibiotics.  The expansion is testament to Hostplus’ forward thinking approach, not only investing in a brighter financial future for their young members, but in a healthier future for Australia, and the rest of the world.
