The NGS Shares Plus investment option mainly invests in companies listed on Australian and major international stock exchanges. It also has small exposures to other assets that offer potentially higher levels of return, though with higher volatility too.

It may suit you if you're looking to grow your super over the long term through exposure purely to equities. Returns are likely to be very volatile.
