New research by Roy Morgan shows that members’ satisfaction with the financial performance of industry superannuation funds was 62.1% in the six months to January 2019, compared with 57.3% for retail super funds. Satisfaction with retail funds was 1.6% below that of industry funds in 2018, and this gap has now increased to 4.8%. Eight of the top 10 performing super funds, based on satisfaction with their financial performance, were industry funds in January 2019. The highest rating was for Catholic Super (72.1%), followed by Unisuper (70.8%). The only two retail funds to make it to the top 10 were Macquarie (65.9%) and Colonial First State (60.4%). These results are from the newly released Roy Morgan ‘Satisfaction with Financial Performance of Superannuation in Australia January 2019’ report. The data in this latest report represents some of the findings from Roy Morgan’s Single Source survey, which is based on in-depth interviews conducted face-to-face with over 50,000 consumers per annum in their homes, including over 30,000 with superannuation. Results presented here are based on interviews conducted in the six months to January 2019.
