Changes to minimum investment timeframes
For each of the VicSuper investment options, we provide a recommended minimum investment time frame as a guide for our members. These time frames are determined in consultation with our asset consultant. Following our merger on 1 July 2020, we aligned the VicSuper investment approach with that of Aware Super. As a result of changes made – such as using a different asset consultant, and changing the Strategic Asset Allocation and allocation to growth assets in some instances – there have been changes to the recommended minimum investment time frames for some of our investment options. These changes are shown below for your reference:
|Investment option||Previous recommended minimum investment time frame||New recommended minimum investment time frame from 1 Nov 2020|
|Equity Growth||7-years plus||Long term (10 years)|
|Socially Conscious||5-years plus||Medium to long term (7 years)*|
|Capital Stable||3-years plus||Medium term (4 years)|
|Capital Secure||1-year plus||Short to medium term (3 years)|
|Australian Shares||7-years plus||Long term (10 years)|
|Cash||No time frame suggested||Short term (up to 2 years)|
Changes to the Strategic Asset Allocation of some of our investment options, effective 1 November 2020, were outlined in the previous edition of SuperNews.
