Build the retirement you want.

The way your super is invested can make a big difference by the time you reach retirement. With Hostplus, you decide how your money is invested, giving you control over your future. It's your money. Make it work for you.

A balanced approach

If you don’t make an investment choice, contributions to your super are automatically invested in the Hostplus Balanced (MySuper) option. However, if you’d like to get a little more hands-on, we have a wide range of choices available for you to explore.

Growing your money

The secret to growing any investment is to stay up to date and on the right track with your investment strategies. At Hostplus, we offer a wide range of investment options to help you find the strategy that works for you. 

Investment options include:

  • Pre-mixed investment options
  • Sector options 
  • Individual manager options 
  • Choiceplus direct investment option*

Each asset class and investment option has its own level of risk and return. In general, the greater an investment risk, the greater its potential return (over the long term), and the greater the suggested investment timeframes. 

This means that while you have the opportunity to make money, there is also a chance that you could lose it. 

Risk exposure: the facts

If you want to invest in a way that’s more secure and steady, you can invest in low-risk assets. This means the investments are considered to be less uncertain, the flip side is they are likely to offer lower returns on your money. 

By learning about different asset classes and the relationship between risk and return you will be able to grow your super to meet your future needs.

Deciding the level of risk in your investment strategy can depend on a number of factors, including:

  • Your age
  • The length of your investment 
  • Other investments you may have
