How to compare superannuation funds

Not all superannuation funds are the same. It’s important to be confident about your super fund — who you choose to invest with can have a significant impact on what your retirement will look like when the time comes. NGS is an award-winning super fund with our members at the heart of everything we do.

Here, we explain how you can compare super funds to make the right decision for you.

Compare super funds performance

For every $50,000 you held with a retail* super fund for the last five years, NGS could have earned you an extra $2,900 to invest and grow for your future.

There are many different ways you could spend that $2,900 — choosing the super fund that could earn you more is the first step to enjoying extra in retirement.
