You may have certain goals for your retirement. That's why we offer different investment options (below), each with a different level of risk and return. Investment choice is available for Accumulation Plan, Beneficiary Account, and Income Stream members.
If you don't make a choice, your benefit and investment earnings will be invested in the default investment option, Growth. If you are unsure which investment option is best for you, have a look at the Investment Risk Profiler on the Calculators page of our website.
These are all 'pre-mixed' options and offer a 'range of risk profiles' from defensive to growth. The Standard Options represent the core options that ESSSuper offers and are underpinned by our investment approach.
The Alternative Options are designed to complement ESSSuper's standard investment offering, giving members greater flexibility and choice. The options are designed for members looking to prioritise a particular characteristic that is important to them when selecting their investment mix. You can choose a single option or a combination of options.
