New research by Roy Morgan shows that in the six months to May 2019, satisfaction with the financial performance of industry superannuation funds was 62.5% (up 0.5% points from the same period 12 months ago), compared with 56.5% for retail super funds (down 3.7% points). Satisfaction with retail funds was 1.8% below that of industry funds in 2018, and this gap has now increased to 6.0%. Ten of the top 12 performing super funds in May 2019, based on member satisfaction with their financial performance, were industry funds. The highest rating was for Unisuper (70.9%), followed by Tasplan on 69.6%. The only two retail funds to make it to the top 12 were Macquarie with 66.6% and Mercer on 64.3%. These results are from the newly released Roy Morgan report ‘Satisfaction with Financial Performance of Superannuation in Australia’, May 2019 edition. The data in this 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. These results are based on interviews conducted in the six months to May 2019.
