The plus side
How your super is invested has a big impact on how much money you’ll be able to withdraw from it in the future. But if you’re not an expert, choosing the right investments can be tricky, particularly in times of economic crisis, where strong emotions can play a heavy hand in decision-making.
When it comes to your super, successful investing is about balancing risk and return in a way that helps you to achieve your retirement income goal. But finding that balance, for your personal situation at different points in your life, is not easy.
If you don’t take on enough risk when you’re further from retirement, your super won’t have time to grow. However, too much risk at the wrong time, could reduce your hard-earned savings.
Because it’s all too hard many super investors rely on their super fund to look after them and believe their fund is doing more than they actually are. A recent survey of more than 3,000 working Australians revealed more than a third of people think that their fund is managing their super investments based on their personal circumstances. In reality, this isn’t true.
