What is it?

The Diversified (Income Account) investment option includes most of the asset classes that NGS Super uses but has a higher weighting to investments in assets with the potential for medium to long-term growth such as shares, infrastructure and property.


Unit prices



10 year average return of 8.24% per annum as at 30 June 2020.


The objective is to achieve a net return of 3% above CPI per annum over rolling ten year periods (after fees and taxes).


Medium, 10+ years. This option may be suitable if you seek to achieve attractive long-term returns, whilst accepting a reasonable level of volatility in returns. This option is suitable for members with a medium to long term investment horizon and reasonable risk tolerance.

Risk over each time horizon
5 years 10 years 20 years
High Low to medium Low

Expected frequency of a negative return over a 20 year period – 4.2 years in 20 years. The higher the expected return target, the more often you would expect a year of negative returns.

Investment returns are shown net of tax and investment expense. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

*The Trustee is required by law to set this objective. It is neither a forecast nor a guarantee of future investment returns. It is anticipated that the CPI objective should be achieved over the long term. However, due to the volatile nature of investment markets and the lack of direct linkage between market returns and inflation, there may be periods when investment returns are not above the objective.
