Standing up for positive change

A gutsy advocate for our members, we continue to demand fairer super and drive diversity, because everyone deserves the best possible retirement.




how does HESTA compare?


Over the last fifteen years, HESTA has consistently outperformed the average retail super fund. See how much better off you are as a HESTA member compared to the average retail fund.



This graph is estimated assuming a $50,000 starting superannuation account balance and employer contributions based on a $50,000 annual salary (15 years to 30 June 2020). Net Benefit refers to a member's investment earnings over that time period (less any fees).

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance and should never be the sole factor considered when selecting a fund. Comparisons modelled by SuperRatings, commissioned by HESTA and shows average differences in net benefit of the main balanced options of HESTA and retail funds tracked by SuperRatings, with a 5 (119 options), 10 (57 options) and 15 (39 options) year performance history, taking into account historical earnings and fees – excluding contribution, entry, exit and additional adviser fees – of main balanced options. Outcomes vary between individual funds. Modelling as at 30 June 2020.
