Prime Super is an independent, profit-to-members superannuation fund.
We have provided super and retirement solutions to Australians for close to 25 years. Today we look after the retirement savings of members who work in industries including agriculture, horticulture, health, education, aged care and recruitment. We have a strong connection with regional Australia and our foundations are in rural and agriculturally based super funds. The Fund was formed in 1996, through the amalgamation of four rural super funds and renamed Prime Super in 2006.
Our core purpose is to help members achieve the best possible retirement outcome they can. We offer superannuation and retirement solutions to grow, manage and protect our members' wealth and retirement income.

Our responsible approach
We advocate for a better future for our members and take a responsible approach to investments. We believe it is important to consider Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors in decisions about fund investments and operations.
ESG considerations include:
A focus on environmental impacts should lead to a more sustainable organisation that delivers a better long-term investment result. Issues include:
- climate change
- impact on local environment
- pollution and waste
- policy and regulatory change
- waste management.
The social impact of behaviour can affect an organisation’s people, reputation, revenue and costs. Issues include:
- health and safety
- human rights
- labour standards
- workforce diversity
- equal opportunities.
Strong governance ensures an organisation addresses risks appropriately, leading to a better business outcome for that organisation. Issues include:
- board composition
- executive remuneration
- risk management
- market conduct.
