This option caters for return-seeking investors who are willing to take moderate "Risks" with their money, but would still like the safety of a proportion of Cash Enhanced and Fixed Interest in their investment.
This option aims to:
provide higher returns, mainly from "Capital Growth", than the Stable and Capital Managed options; and
achieve returns (after tax and other costs) over rolling ten year periods of 3% above "CPI*".
Please note: Returns are not guaranteed.
Balanced is suitable for investors with an investment timeframe of five years.
Medium to high
Risk of negative return
Estimated number of negative annual returns over any 20 year period.
*Please note that TTR investment earnings are taxed up to 15%, so returns are the same as those for Accumulation (Super). To obtain returns for TTR accounts prior to 1 July refer to our 2017 Annual Report.

All returns shown above are net effective earning rates (i.e. after tax and some fees). The FYTD Return and the 1yr rolling return are not annualised. The returns for all other periods are compound annualised averages. Refer to the Energy Super Annual Report for more information on how rates are calculated.
Investments can go up and down. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance.
* CPI is measured by the All Groups Consumer Price Index For Australia.
** The total indirect fees and costs (including the indirect administration fee) is the estimated cost for the 2018/19 period.
