Choice of investments

Diversification can help you manage the investment risk associated with your superannuation. FirstChoice Wholesale Personal Super gives you access to over 100 investment options managed by some of the most well-known investment managers and specialist boutique managers.

You can either specify your own investment options, or with lifestage investments the investment mix is automatically adjusted as you get older.
