Investment options within SignatureSuper

Before switching, it could be helpful to understand a bit more about the risks of investing.

Super funds invest in a range of different assets, aiming to give you an income when you retire from working. The risk of the investment options available to you are based on your age and your investment timeframe.

The investment options within SignatureSuper are divided into categories based on risks in different life stages. This is described in the table below and is for information only.
 

Category  Description
Standalone The investment options in this category are highly diversified and allocating up to 100% of your portfolio in investment options in the Standalone category would generally not be considered high risk.
Core The investment options in this category are diversified or are appropriate to use as a core part of your super investments. Allocating more than 75% of your portfolio in a single investment option in the Core category may result in increased risk.
Satellite

The investment options in this category are generally targeted and provide exposure to a single asset class. Allocating more than 25% of your portfolio in investment options in the Satellite category may result in increased risk and a heightened level of volatility.

This category includes options which use gearing (borrowing to invest) that can provide bigger returns but also result in larger losses. These have an increased risk and volatility and may not be appropriate if you need to access your super in the near future.

This table is designed to help you identify which investment options are in these risk categories based on your age group.
