Understanding what makes a good super fund

You're in a super fund. But is it a good one? Are you getting a good investment return? Do the fees represent value for money? Are the insurance premiums competitive? Is your fund helping you make the most from your super through its services to you as a member?

Comparing super or pension funds isn't easy. There are many differences in what funds disclose and how they disclose it.

This is where Chant West can help. We research funds, working behind the scenes to present all the important information in a way that allows you to make fair, 'apples with apples' comparisons. Our research is respected and trusted throughout the industry.

With our Super Fund Ratings and Pension Fund Ratings, you can view funds that we consider to be among the Highest Quality Funds (5 Apples), a High Quality Fund (4 Apples) and a Fair Quality Fund (3 Apples). Read about how we assess funds: Super Ratings Methodology and Pension Ratings Methodology.

You can also access our research through our easy-to-use AppleCheck online fund comparison tool, which is also available as a mobile version. There's Super AppleCheck if you're still working or contributing, and Pension AppleCheck if you're drawing an income from your super or planning to do so. You can compare up to three funds in one report for $55.

Check with your fund to see if they offer Chant West AppleCheck free on their website.
