* Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance and should never be the sole factor considered when selecting a fund. 

** All references to the Balanced (MySuper) option includes the Balanced option for TransPension members. The underlying investment option is the same, however, the name is different to comply with Government requirements.

Think before you switch

While switching investment options in volatile markets might give you some comfort now, over the long term it may reduce the earning potential of your super, and that could mean less money in retirement. 

For most people, super is a long-term investment. That means you shouldn't let short-term performance influence your long-term investment strategy. 

You should only consider switching investment options if it is in line with your long-term investment strategy.
