How MySuper changes as you get older
All investments come with some risk. Some investment options will have more risk than others, as it depends on an option’s investment strategy and assets.
The value of an investment with a higher level of risk, ie more growth investments will tend to rise and fall more often and by greater amounts than defensive investments with lower levels of risk.
Our MySuper investment option changes in line with your age. The table below shows how the balance of growth and defensive investments gradually changes depending on your age.
|Age||Benchmark total growth mix||Benchmark total defensive mix|
|Under 55 years||85%||15%|
|65 and over||70%
The percentage figures in the table above have been rounded to whole numbers.
