Best Superannuation Fund award 2021-2023: Product Review

ProductReview.com.au has awarded us Best Superannuation Fund in the Industry Super category for our strong investment performance, competitive fees and costs, and outstanding customer service in 2021, 2022 and 20231.






SuperRatings Net benefit award 2024

When you’re choosing a super fund, one way to figure out how well a fund is performing is to look at the ‘net benefit’.

What is the net benefit? The net benefit is your investment earnings, after any fees and taxes have been taken out.

We were awarded the SuperRatings Net Benefit award in 2024 (and in 2021 and 2022), which recognises HESTA as the Australian super fund with the best net benefit outcomes delivered to members over the short and long term.1

Investing in the future of medicine

We want to invest in companies that earn strong returns and also improve the wellbeing and livelihood of all people, so we often look beyond the stock exchange and invest in private companies. These companies give you access to unique investment opportunities, which you may be unaware of or don’t have the scale to access on your own.
