We deal with risk every day. But when it comes to your money, how much risk are you willing to take?

Hostplus is here to support you in your retirement years. Like all investments, superannuation carries an element of risk. Investment returns are never guaranteed and can vary from one year to the next.

Control the risk in your investments

We offer a range of investment options to suit your needs and to allow you to make the right choices for your risk profile.

Each of our investment options has a different level of risk. You can select the option best suited to your risk profile based on a range of factors including your age, attitude to risk, investment time-frame and personal preferences.

Learn about your risk profile

There are a number of factors that contribute to your risk profile. For example, do you have 35 years of working life ahead of you and are you prepared to ride the ups and downs to get a better long term gain?

Things to consider are:

  • Your tolerance to volatility.
  • Other investments you have.
  • Your future financial plans.
  • Your attitude to the different type of investments.
