OUR MESSAGE TO YOU

Supporting generations

We’re pleased to update you on developments in the 2017/18 financial year. As you will have heard, 2017 marked a very special milestone for the Fund – we turned 50! Maritime Super is one of Australia’s longest-running super funds – run only to benefit members. We’re here to help members make the most of their super, and that’s the way it’s been for over 50 years. Over the decades, we’ve delivered innovative super and retirement benefits to generations of members. We’re the largest industry fund for the maritime industry with over 27,000 members and approaching $6 billion in assets.

The Fund’s assets are members’ hard earned savings, and we never lose sight of that. The Board’s priority is the delivery of consistent long-term returns, to help our members achieve financial security in retirement. As such, we take the investment of your assets very seriously. Maritime Super’s investment options all delivered positive and solid returns to our members.

Embracing digital

We continue to focus our attention and resources on online tools to make it easy for members to understand and engage with their super. In July we launched a new website, both public and secure sites, delivering a more personalised and intuitive experience. It’s also the third year we’ve produced an interactive personalised annual statement for members – a leading digital solution in the superannuation industry.  Our digital offering continues to evolve and expand with a suite of calculators, educational videos, email campaigns and social media channels. Everything we do is about making sure members have the tools and support to make informed decisions to improve their financial outcomes and achieve financial security.

Personalised service

Our financial planning team is always on hand and in contact with members to keep them abreast of issues that may impact or benefit their long term financial position. This financial year planners met with over 1,700 members, and they also visited 100 worksites across the country – offering a highly personalised service helping our members with super and investment decisions. Make sure you get acquainted with our financial planning team.

“We continue to look for ways to make it easy for members to access, understand and manage their super whether through new digital innovations or one-on-one support opportunities.”
