The S&P/ASX 200 has shed almost seven per cent so far in 2018, including a fall of 10.8 per cent since August. The big sell-down on 25 October will impact on superannuation funds’ returns, with balanced funds having lost about 2.5 per cent so far in 2018-19. SuperRatings MD Jeff Bresnahan says most super fund members who have chosen the balanced option can expect the value of their super to fall by around four per cent in response to the sell-off.
