*Target net returns

Intrust Super has set an investment return objective for the Core Super | MySuper Strategy of CPI + 3% per annum over rolling ten year periods.
The objective forms the basis from which the Trustee sets an investment strategy and monitors investment performance. The Return Target shown in this Product Dashboard is different from that objective and is calculated in accordance with the requirements that apply to MySuper.

The Return Target is the mean annualised estimate of return over ten years above CPI, after deducting investment and administration fees, costs and taxes. These estimates and assumptions may change over time. It is not a guaranteed return.
Returns are driven by investment earnings such as share dividends, interest payments on bonds and loans and increases or decreases in asset prices. “Net returns” refers to the returns an investment delivers after fees and costs have been factored in.

Super funds have a returns target, which is the return they are aiming to achieve. The actual return they achieve may be different to the returns they target. Returns are unpredictable.

Inflation refers to the general increase in the prices of goods and services (such as groceries, fuel, rent and electricity) over time. It’s measured by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and is used as a gauge to track increases or decreases in the cost of living. Inflation is important in terms of super, because $100 might purchase a lot less in 10 years than what it does today. This means that it’s desirable for net returns to exceed inflation.


CPI stands for Consumer Price Index. This is an index that tracks the movement of around 100,000 prices of goods and services, collected and compiled by the ABS. This index is used to calculate inflation over various time periods. If the index is higher next year than it is today, it means there is positive inflation over the year.

***Actual net returns

As mentioned above, the actual returns a super fund achieves may be different from the returns targeted.

The blue columns in the chart plot the one-year returns to 30 June in each of the years listed along the horizontal axis.

Each point on the red line indicates the average annual return over the 10 years to the date at that point. The line therefore represents the moving 10 year average.

Each point on the green line indicates the average target annual return over the 10 years to the date at that point. The line, therefore, represents the moving 10 year average target return.

^Level of investment risk

This is a Standard Risk Measure that is based on industry guidance to allow members to compare investment options that are expected to deliver a similar number of negative annual returns over any 20-year period.
The Standard Risk Measure is not a complete assessment of all forms of investment risk, for instance, it does not detail what the size of a negative return could be or the potential for a positive return to be less than a member requires to meet their objectives. Furthermore, it does not take into account the impact of fees and tax on the likelihood of a negative return.
Members should still ensure they are comfortable with the risks and potential losses associated with their chosen investment option(s).
