It is our number one priority to grow and manage your super so you can enjoy a comfortable retirement. We do this by seeking strong risk-adjusted returns, and keeping fees to a minimum.
Also important to growing your super, is our commitment to our Environmental, Social and Governance policy - as we recognise climate change as an existential threat and one that poses a great risk to our investment portfolios. There is growing evidence that suggests ESG factors, when integrated into investment analysis and portfolios, can offer performance advantages. Further details on our recent update regarding ESG investment can be found the the publications section of our website.
We’re the fourth largest investor in responsible assets out of Australia’s super funds, according to the 2016 benchmark report by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA).
As a Vision Super member, your super is invested in sustainable infrastructure and renewable energy vital to Australia and beyond. It’s invested in assets such as the Vision Super Wonthaggi Wind Farm, which is wholly owned and operated by Vision Super and provides electricity to almost 7000 Victorian homes.

As well as our focus on responsible investment, we’re committed to being a socially responsible fund and practising good governance. We focus on fairness, and being a fund that works hard for you and your retirement. Being an industry fund, we only exist to make a profit for members - not shareholders.
We want you to feel confident about retirement. We’re dedicated to providing you with information that will help you make better decisions about your future, and we encourage you to see us at a seminar, expo or financial planning appointment near you.
Feeling confident about retirement requires effective policy in place that allows you to grow sufficient super savings during your working life. That’s why we are regularly in the press debating the need for legislative changes to super, as well as working with major employer associations to advocate for your super.

The option has rated by independent super researcher, SuperRatings as the cheapest sustainable super option in Australia. It has also been named as a finalist for SuperRatings' Best New Innovation award.
