Make Hostplus your default fund.

Choosing a default fund for your business is a big decision. After all, you’re choosing where your employees’ super will be managed. It’s important to make an informed decision.

We focus on getting the maximum return on investments for all of our members.

What is a default fund?

In a nutshell, your default fund is the fund into which you pay your employees’ Super Guarantee (SG) contributions if they don’t already have a fund of their own.

Awards-specified fund

If you’re in an industry with a Modern Award1 , there will be a default fund specified for you in that award. If you’re not sure, do a quick check with the Industry Super's Default Fund Finder to find the industry fund/s listed in your industry's Modern Award. 

It’s possible Hostplus may even be a specified fund for the award or agreement your employees are covered by. If you do need to choose a default fund, partnering with Hostplus as your default fund is straightforward.
