Recent legislation has seen the introduction of MySuper, which has in many cases resulted in a reduction in benefits and services within Superannuation funds. If you compare ‘apples with apples’ fees have actually gone up in many cases, as many MySuper funds have passive investment strategies which are very cheap to manage.
No two funds are the same. Understanding what you get for the fees you pay is very difficult to do and comparison is still not easy. Insurance premiums also vary hugely between funds.

Fees have a large impact on the final retirement benefit you receive, so we are keen to minimise them where possible for our client.
