how does HESTA compare?


Over the last 15 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 2021). 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 (99 options), 10 (44 options) and 15 (33 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 2021.
