Your super is one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make. Which makes sense, because your super has to provide you with an income long after you’ve stopped working. This could be up to 30 years.
And the type of lifestyle you’ll have in retirement could be affected by the choices you make now, including where and how you invest your super. Energy Super provides 11 investment options for you to choose from. But you’re not locked into just one: you can choose to spread your money across multiple investment options.
And you can switch your options at any time via the Member Portal at no cost to you.
