Published on 10 Mar 2022

According to the latest super funds research from Rainmaker, five Prime Super investment options were placed in the top five for risk-adjusted returns, including our MySuper investment option.*

The performance of 1,800 investment options was assessed by Rainmaker in 10 different sectors. Prime Super’s top 10 performance in six of the 10 Rainmaker sectors, resulted in our 60% strike-rate, and our second overall super fund ranking, shown in the table below.

The aim of the RMetrics analysis is to assess investment returns, market volatility and risk to determine how superannuation funds perform against their peers.

The results were derived from a range of measures and ratios, delivering a scorecard which determines an investment option's performance. Funds with steady, positive returns (like Prime Super) across various investment options receive a higher strike-rate percentage and could be considered a top risk-adjusted super fund.

Note: Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
