Other Benefits of BUSSQ
Financial planning advice you can count on
BUSSQ offers you straightforward, limited financial advice about your super including choosing insurance, investments and contributions, at no extra cost*. BUSSQ also offers you more complex financial advice about your super on a fee for service basis. Our fees are low and extremely competitive, structured purely for cost recovery. They can be deducted from your super account, so you won’t be out of pocket. To find out more visit what sort of advice do you need?
*The cost is included in the funds' administration fees.
Profits returned to members
Our members always come first. Profits are returned to you, unlike many other super funds that pay a proportion of their profits to shareholders and incentives to agents. This means more money for your retirement.
There are NO establishment or administration fees on our Transition to Retirement or Retirement pensions. BUSSQ is an industry fund and keeps its fees low to ensure more money goes to you. A management fee applies on each investment option, the amount of which varies depending on the type of investment option selected.
BUSSQ has 11 different investment options you can choose from, each with a distinctly different investment objective and strategy. You can tailor your investment approach to suit your individual needs by “mixing and matching” the options.
From transition to retirement and retirement planning, to superannuation investment options and retirement income stream choices, BUSSQ’s team of pension specialists is here to help.
