On 26 February 2019, the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) released their latest quarterly publications: Quarterly Superannuation Performance Statistics (December 2018) and Quarterly MySuper Statistics (December 2018).
The first publication provides sector-aggregate summaries of the financial performance and key metrics of the superannuation funds regulated by APRA. The second publication provides the performance data and other metrics of MySuper products on a product-by-product basis.
Some important statistics contained in the publications are presented and analysed with a focus on comparing the long-term return performances across various superannuation sectors. A list of MySuper products ranked by 5-year net returns for a representative member is also provided.
