MySuper Default Investment Option Change 2019

MySuper default investment option change

Important information about how your super is invested

At EISS Super we’re always looking for ways to improve our products and services to help you get the retirement you deserve. Many of our members trust us to manage their investments by leaving their super in our default MySuper investment option, currently MySuper Conservative Balanced.

We take the trust our members place in us very seriously. Considering the long term nature of superannuation we have determined that changing our default MySuper investment option to one that invests in more growth assets (e.g. Australian and International equities) will provide our MySuper members with a better outcome at retirement. As such, we will be changing our default MySuper investment option to our Balanced investment option from 18 November 2019.

What does this mean for members?

Unless you tell us otherwise, your full account balance will be transferred from MySuper Conservative Balanced to our Balanced option on 18 November 2019. From that date, your future contributions and any rollovers you make into your account will also be invested in our Balanced option.

While our Balanced option invests more of your super in growth assets like Australian and International equities, we still follow the same cautious philosophy, to manage investment risk and protect your capital while capturing opportunities for growth.

We encourage you to think about your investment choice at this time and consider whether this change is right for you given your personal circumstances, including how long you have to retirement.
