    Our investment performance
    Our investment performance

    We’re pleased to have delivered another year of solid performance in FY18 for our MySuper investment option, which returned 9.10% for the year. Importantly, we’ve continued to deliver strong returns over the long-term. Our MySuper investment options are meeting their investment objectives over five and 10 years.^

    At VicSuper, we’re about delivering steady, long-term investment outcomes for members. We believe it is important to be disciplined, long-term investors and not react to short-term market ‘noise’ or headlines. A key part of this is ensuring we have an investment strategy in place that is well equipped to deliver positive returns in both good and bad market environments.

    ^ Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
