In it for the long run: More to Club Plus Super than just super performance

Club Plus Super’s Balanced fund has been rated as one of the best performing superannuation funds in Australia under the prestigious Canstar rating for 2017. Canstar compares personal super products for over 60 funds.
Club Plus Super CEO Stefan Strano said it was important not to place too much emphasis on a one-year number. From his point of view, the most important goal for superannuation funds was to deliver great outcomes for members over the long term and a strength of Club Plus Super is our ability to provide a very personalised level of support and advice when required.
“It’s fantastic to be able to give our members more money in investment returns in any given year than the other funds,” Mr Strano said. “But we’re a long-term investor, and one-year performance is not what we talk about every day.
“Everyone wants to receive high returns, but it’s just as important to know where the returns came from and how much risk was taken to achieve them – this information helps you understand whether it was good management or good luck.”
“We’re constantly evaluating the level of risk in our investment options and strategies to make sure they match the needs and expectations of all of our members.”
