Choose lower fees

Impact of lower fees on your super balance

Small differences in fees and costs can have a substantial impact on your long-term returns and they can vary greatly from fund to fund. For example, total annual fees and costs of 2% of your account balance rather than 1% could reduce your final return by up to 20% over a 30 year period (for example, reduce it from $100,000 to $80,000).

That's why doing your research, comparing superannuation funds and considering a fund with not only lower fees, but strong performance (keeping in mind that past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance), investment choice and outstanding customer service is also important.
