MTAA Super was established in 1989, four years after the National Wage Case that secured a 3 per cent employer superannuation contribution to be paid into an industry fund.
Back then, few Australians had super. Those who did were mainly whitecollar public servants or high-paid managers from the private sector.
Three decades later, most Australians have accumulated retirement savings throughout their working lives. In fact, as at September 2018, there was over $2.8 trillion dollars invested in Australian super funds — more than double the national GDP.
Today, super doesn’t just shape the retirement of Australians, it shapes many aspects of our everyday lives.
As one of Australia’s leading super funds, we’re proud to support the future of everyday Australians. Low fees and costs, advice to suit your needs, flexible investment options, motoring spirit. We put members first — always.
We’d like to thank all our members and employers for your support and loyalty over the last 30 years. We look forward to supporting you for many more.
“A major achievement for MTAA Super has been our ability to keep costs competitive. We’ve built a robust and resilient fund through strong governance and risk management, and a proactive compliance regime. This all adds up to better outcomes for our members” - John Brumby, Chairman
“Our driving philosophy has always been ‘members first’. That means if we see an issue, we’ll address it. If we make a mistake, we’ll own it and fix it. If we find a better way to do things, we’ll embrace it. Everything we do is to help our members save for a secure and dignified retirement.
That will never change.” - Leeanne Turner, CEO
