Share markets were fairly volatile throughout 2023, before rallying strongly in November and December on news of lower inflation, posting healthy gains for the year.

Our Balanced option, where most pension members invest1, returned 9.41% over the year.2 This was driven by both rising share markets and solid contributions from unlisted assets.   

Our Indexed Balanced option returned 14.75% and was one of the top-ranked balanced option for the year, according to SuperRatings.2
