VicSuper releases 2016 Annual Report

VicSuper is pleased to announce the release of its 2016 Annual Report.

FY 2015-16 was a successful year for the Fund. Despite the significant market volatility both in Australia and overseas, most of VicSuper’s investment options achieved above-median returns for the year1. The report also details several member engagement projects that were introduced, including the “Get Super Active” strategy which aims to make super real for people by showing their balance in cash. VicSuper has also introduced initiatives designed to coach members on the small steps they can take now with their super which could make a big difference to their savings in the long run.

Some other highlights outlined in this year’s report include: VicSuper being awarded with Best Fund Longevity Product by Chant West, its award of Best Capital Stable Return 2006-2015 (SR50) from SuperRatings, and maintaining the SuperRatings Platinum-rated fund status for FY 2015/16.

Commenting on the 2016 report, Michael Dundon, Chief Executive Officer at VicSuper said, “I’m proud to say that we have worked hard to produce another meaningful and insightful annual report for our members. We hope that our members enjoy reading about our achievements over the past year and how our strategy is working to deliver them value now and into the future.”

In 2014 and 2015, VicSuper’s Annual Report received the Award for Excellence in Annual Reporting from the Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees (AIST). This is the Fund’s third year of applying the two global best practice corporate reporting and disclosure standards - the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) G4 reporting guidelines and the principles of the International Integrated Reporting (IR) Framework.

VicSuper’s commitment to comprehensive performance reporting is part of its wider corporate responsibility agenda. Kirsten Simpson, VicSuper’s Corporate Responsibility manager, commented, “We’re really proud of our third integrated Annual Report. We’ve applied international best practice reporting frameworks again this year and the report’s content has also been independently assured by Deloitte.”

VicSuper’s 2016 Annual Report is available in online and print (by request).
