We know there's a lot to consider when choosing who to have your super with.


Perhaps it's low fees you're after? Or maybe it's solid long-term performance?

How about both?

One way to figure out how well your fund is performing is to look at the 'net benefit'.


What is net benefit?

The net benefit is your investment earnings, after any fees and taxes have been taken out. It shows what returns you've earned on your super - and it's calculated based on historical returns.


The benefit's all yours

There are a few factors which contribute to the fees a fund charges and its long-term net returns. Two of the most important are how the fund invests and what the fund invests in.

At HESTA we want the best possible financial outcome for our members. We invest actively to get the greatest returns we can for you.

We invest across shares, property, infrastructure, bonds and cash. And we use our size to lower costs and structure investments in the most effective and efficient way.

Administration fees are what we charge to keep the fund running and - importantly for you - growing. But we keep them as low as we can.


Long story short: we're making sure every dollar goes where it should - straight into your account.
