Investments that strengthen our economy & your retirement savings.

Industry SuperFunds have a proud history of investing in Australia. Whether it’s through major infrastructure projects such as roads, airports, ports and energy distribution, property or helping Aussie businesses raise capital, we’ve been there to help make these projects happen and – crucially – help your super grow. And that’s not about to change.

Over the next three years, it is forecasted that Industry SuperFunds will be investing $19.5 billion in projects that will create over 200,000 estimated jobs between 2020 to 2023. These investments will help the economy and your super bounce back.

Where is your super invested?

If your super is with an Industry SuperFund, chances are it’s invested in many of these major projects around Australia. Use the map below to find your local Industry SuperFund investment.

Why invest in infrastructure and property?

Infrastructure and property are classed as illiquid assets. They are long-term investments that are intended to grow significantly over time. A lot of younger super members will find their super to be invested in illiquid assets for this reason (unless they have selected their own investment option).

Being invested in quality long-term infrastructure and building investments in Australia that benefit members through broader economic growth as well as healthy investment returns are just one of the factors that have led Industry SuperFunds to outperform their retail counterparts over the last five, ten and 15 years*.

What jobs are being created?

When you think about a property or infrastructure project and the jobs it creates, your first thoughts might be on the people who help build it, such as the thousands of tradespeople who work on these projects. But it’s so much more than that. It’s the designers who first dream up the project; the maintenance staff who ensure it continues to function; and the staff employed by businesses that rent out the space.

What else does your super invest in?

In addition to investing in unlisted assets such as airports and office buildings, Industry SuperFunds invest in a wide range of investment asset classes to provide a diversified investment portfolio and a range of investment options; examples of these include:

  • Superannuation funds
  • Shares in Australian and overseas markets
  • Term deposits
  • Investment properties
  • Government and corporate bonds
  • Listed property trusts 
  • Managed fund units
  • Commodities, such as gold etc.

Different investments have different risks associated with them. Some are long-term opportunities whilst other investments move more closely with day-to-day market conditions. Industry SuperFunds provide you with an opportunity to tailor your investments to suit your risk appetite and financial plan and strategy. All investment involves a certain level of risk; you can read more about risk here.

If you’re not familiar with investing, or particular investment options, then it’s wise to seek the assistance of a professional financial advisor or investment advisor.
