MLC MySuper investment performance update

MySuper Growth Portfolio continues to flourish 

MLC’s MySuper Growth Portfolio—where the majority of members are invested—delivered a positive 9.4%* return for the 12 months to 30 September 2023.

Furthermore, the MySuper Growth Portfolio has returned an average of 7.9%* per annum for the three years to 30 September 2023. 

What contributed to positive returns

The key growth drivers over the year were our investments in global shares unhedged to the Australian dollar (20.3%), global shares hedged to the Australian dollar (19.4%) and Australian shares (12.9%). Our unlisted infrastructure strategy and credit exposures also contributed to the strong performance. 

Well-considered, diverse asset portfolios across the many geographies in which we invest, are maximising opportunity to achieve consistently strong long-term returns for members.  

Steve Gamerov - Head of Diversified Portfolios at MLC Asset Management, says the results are testament to the well-considered investment options chosen on behalf of the members. 

“There is rarely return without risk, but not all risks are equal. Part of our role is to make intelligent risks that provide the best chance of delivering the outcomes our members expect and deserve.

“Our willingness to embrace change and new ways of thinking has helped us adapt to great change in the market, as well as in the wider world.

“Recognising that what has been effective in the past may not be so in the future, helps us to always be alert to new growth opportunities for our members.”
