Preliminary data shows that Australia’s median growth superannuation fund achieved a return of nine per cent in 2017-18, compared with the S&P/ASX 200’s gain of 8.3 per cent. Data from Chant West shows that the median growth fund’s return since fiscal 2009 has averaged 9.5 per cent, for a cumulative return over the period of more than 130 per cent. The funds with the highest returns are expected to have gained at least 12 per cent in 2017-18. Meanwhile, MLC Super’s chief investment officer Jonathan Armitage says returns are likely to be lower in the next several years.
