2020: Year in review

February 10 |  2 min

I hope you all had a relaxing break and caught up with family and friends.

Last year was a difficult one for many in the community. I think most of us are glad to put it behind us and are looking forward to life hopefully returning to normal in 2021 with the rollout of the vaccine.

After Victoria’s lockdown, Vision Super staff will be in the process of returning to the office. When we’re back, you’re welcome to visit us at level 15, 360 Collins Street if you need assistance or have a meeting booked. We will also start face to face meetings again in a very controlled way. If you want to meet with one of the team at your work place or somewhere other than the Vision Super offices, please give us a call. Of course if you prefer, we’re still more than happy to talk to you on the phone or by email, and our Financial Planners can meet with you via video conference as they have been throughout 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation carefully and to put the well-being of our people and our members first.

You may have seen some media coverage of our performance over the last year, including this article – I’m pleased to say Vision Super is one of the strongest performers in the country. Our default Balanced growth option was top two in the country for the year ending 30 November 2020*. Vision Super’s Innovation and disruption option was also rated as the top-performing option in the country over the same period – it’s a high-risk option that’s not for everyone but it includes a number of technology companies that have done very well during the pandemic.

This edition of the quarterly newsletter includes information on personal finances for your life stage, a summary of the services you can access as a Vision Super member, and a more detailed look at our new brand – and other information tailored to you.
I hope you enjoy reading the newsletter, and as always we welcome your feedback.

Best wishes for 2021,

Stephen Rowe
Chief Executive Officer
