CEO Update

Over the last four years we’ve seen healthy growth in our investment portfolios, but recently there has been increased volatility in Australian equities. 

At times like this, it’s important to remember that markets will always experience ups and downs; some larger and for longer periods, than others.

WATCH: Our CEO, Michael Dundon has recorded a short video to talk you through how VicSuper is managing this volatility through our investments strategies and the services we have available for all our members to work through the volatility. 

Michael Dundon - 2015 -2016 Quarter 3

Important Update: 

Recently there has been a lot of coverage in the media about possible changes to super by the government. The May Federal Budget could be a time these proposed changes are announced.

So now might be a good time to book in to have a conversation with a VicSuper Financial Planner. Our super experts can help you take advantage of tax effective strategies in super which are currently available. 

Every VicSuper member has access to personal advice with a VicSuper Financial Planner, to book a time to chat, visit the VicSuper website or call 1300 366 216.

Want to get your super sorted?  

Simply give us the go ahead and we’ll do the hard yards for you.  

VicSuper can help you to track down any other super you might hold and help consolidate your accounts.

Research shows that the average Australian will have around 17 jobs throughout their working life. And while that can make for an interesting career, it can also mean up to 17 different super accounts — what a headache! 

To save yourself the hassle of hunting down lost super from an old job, we can do it for you. This will also help you to identify any other active super accounts you might have. 

You can provide consent easily and quickly here and we'll find it for you!

Combining multiple super accounts could mean:

  • Fewer fees 
  • Less paperwork 
  • AND a consolidated base to grow your super. 

If you have questions or would like to provide consent over the phone call our Member Centre on
1300 366 216.
