New data shows that both balanced and growth superannuation funds achieved a return of just 0.8 per cent in March. The low returns mean super funds may struggle to deliver strong returns for the financial year, after global financial market volatility weighed on returns in the December quarter. Super funds have returned an average of just 3.2 per cent so far in 2018-19, and balanced funds are now unlikely to maintain their recent track record of double-digit returns for the full year.
