MLC MySuper investment performance update

MySuper Growth Portfolio continues to deliver positive returns 

MLC’s MySuper Growth Portfolio—where the majority of members are invested—delivered a positive 11.3% return for the 12 months to 31 March 2024. This return was comfortably above the inflation rate for the year, meaning we've grown the real value of balances of our members that are fully invested in this fund.

This March quarter represents the first true 5-year return under the current MySuper strategy.

The MySuper Growth Portfolio has returned 7.3% per annum for the five years to 31 March 2024.

What contributed to positive returns

The March quarter delivered positive returns which contributed to the healthy 11.3% performance for the MySuper Growth Portfolio over the full year.

Over the year, alternative strategies performed strongly. As alternative strategies have different patterns of return from those provided by share markets, they represent a valuable source of diversification for the MySuper Growth strategy.

Our extended credit strategy has done particularly well. Equities were also a big driver, with both our Australian and international share investments performing strongly.

Another area that performed well for our members is private credit. As the traditional banking sector has reduced its lending to some areas, in part due to regulatory requirements, private credit markets have stepped in to partially fill the void.

Fixed income returns were broadly positive, with our active portfolio able to outperform the market. We took advantage of higher yields in fixed income assets, and we continue to see attractive opportunities in these markets.
