BUSSQ ranked number  1

In a tough investment climate for super funds BUSSQ ranks #1^.

BUSSQ Building Super has been ranked #1 for its Balanced Growth option for the financial year to March 2020 with a return of -2.63%, compared to the industry fund median of -6.07%.^

Of course, negative returns are never welcome, and we are disappointed to see members’ balances fall over the past weeks, due to Coronavirus related market volatility. 

Yet, BUSSQ has outperformed all other super funds in the SuperRatings survey.^

Our Balanced Growth option follows a diversified investment strategy, which is designed to withstand market ups and downs.
At BUSSQ, we actively manage downside risk and understand that performing strongly in difficult times is very important to you. We continue to remain committed to protecting our members’ retirement savings


Past performance is no indication of future performance. Performance is only one thing to consider when choosing a super fund. For more information go to ASIC’s MoneySmart.

The ranking was confirmed on 22 April when the SuperRatings returns for the financial year to date were announced.
