FirstChoice Employer Super offers a MySuper product offering, the default investment option of FirstChoice Lifestage, as well as a wide range of investment options from well‑respected Australian and international fund managers.
Our default investment option – FirstChoice Lifestage
FirstChoice Lifestage is a smart investment option that changes with you throughout your working life.
If you don’t make an investment selection, then all contributions made on your behalf are placed in the FirstChoice Lifestage option according to your year of birth.1
Rather than having a fixed investment strategy for life, FirstChoice Lifestage adjusts your investment mix as you get older, so your investment strategy automatically changes so that it is appropriate for your age
While you are young, with more time to ride out the ups and downs of investment markets, more of your super will be invested in growth assets, such as property and shares. These assets have a greater potential to deliver higher returns and grow your retirement savings above inflation.
As retirement gets closer you have less time to recover from any short-term losses, so more of your super will be invested in defensive assets, such as cash and fixed interest, to provide greater stability.
The good news is this happens automatically. So even if you don't actively manage your super, your super will manage itself.
