The Nationwide MySuper option is the default option into which your balance and contributions are invested where you have not made an investment choice (known as the NSF Diversified option prior to 1 September 2013).
Aims to produce an investment return of at least 3% in excess of the average rate of inflation (measured by the Consumer Price Index for Australia) over a rolling 7 year period (as at 30 June). This objective is also considered appropriate over rolling 10 and 20 year periods.
The option is designed for members who want a moderate level of return over the medium term. There will be some fluctuations in returns from year to year. This option provides balanced investment diversification by investing across a wide range of growth and defensive assets, namely Australian and global shares, property, fixed income, infrastructure, alternative investments and cash.
