Hostplus is an award-winning super fund

We’re thrilled to share that Hostplus has been named Money magazine’s Best Super Fund for 2024[1].

What does that mean for our members?  Hostplus is a top-performing super fund[2] that puts members first. Judged on strong performance, good value, and an ongoing focus on members, we’re proud to be a super fund that delivers on all three fronts.

The benefits of being with us

Take a look at how we’re striving to help our members have a future they’ve worked hard for.

Consistently strong returns

We measure our success by what we deliver for our members. As well as winning Money magazine’s Best Super Fund for 20241, Hostplus’ default Balanced (MySuper) option, where most of our members invest, is a top performer over the long term. In fact, it’s ranked the number one option over rolling 10 and 20-year periods². See our investment performance at hostplus.com.au/performance.

A low admin fee[3] 

One of the lowest admin fees out of any MySuper product means more of our members’ money is invested in their future. Every dollar our members save goes a long way to helping them achieve a future full of positivity. That’s why we aim to keep our fees and costs as low as possible. You can find out about our fees by visiting hostplus.com.au/fees.

A wide range of investment choices

While our Balanced option is designed for members who prefer to leave investment decisions to us, we offer a range of investment options for members who want more control over their super. They can choose from pre-mixed and single sector options, a direct investment option called Choiceplus, and more. Members can mix and match options to suit their investment risk profiles and financial objectives. Take a look at our range of investments at hostplus.com.au/investments.

Socially responsible investment options

Members can choose investments that align with their personal values. Our Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) options seek to reduce exposure to industries like fossil fuels and companies that breach human rights or labour rights standards. Find out more at hostplus.com.au/SRI.

Customisable insurance options[4]

Having the right insurance in place can give you peace of mind that you and your loved ones are protected should something bad happen. And because everyone’s different, our insurance options can be customised to suit each stage in our members’ lives. Hostplus members may receive default Death and Total & Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance when they join us as a super member, without the need for medical checks or lengthy paperwork (subject to eligibility). We also offer specific life events insurance and premium-free parental leave cover help to protect members during life’s big changes. Visit hostplus.com.au/insurance for more information.

Tailored advice and financial planning[5]  

Whether our members want general advice or comprehensive financial planning, we’re here to help. Our superannuation advisers and financial planners can support our members set and meet their retirement goals. Members can choose the convenience of a phone appointment, opt for a more personal approach with a face-to-face consultation, or DIY with our online advice tool. Take a look at our service offering at hostplus.com.au/financial-planning.

24/7 access

Hostplus members can access their account anywhere and anytime through our Member Online portal and mobile app. They can check their account balance, review the payments they’ve received, update their details, change investment options, review their insurance and make extra contributions.

Hostplus is a proud industry fund

As an Industry SuperFund, we’re run only to benefit our members. Unlike bank-owned and other retail funds, profits go back to our members, not shareholders. Our purpose at Hostplus is simple: to help our members on their journey towards a more secure financial future.

That’s a plus.
