Super is a long-term investment, so we encourage people to look at longer timeframes. However, we made some changes to our investment strategy in recent years, to respond to changing economic and regulatory environments, so we sometimes talk about our recent performance as it most accurately reflects our current investment approach.

Past performance is not a guarantee of future performance.
