Efficient, friendly service!

Contacted Aware to find out about binding beneficiaries. I received all info that I needed plus helpful tips on using my online member account. The staff member was friendly, interested and went above and beyond what I had called about. Very glad I am with Aware Super!

Review of Aware Super

published

Have been with Aware when it was previously called First State (?)
I am satisfied with the customer service from Abbey who was extremely knowledgeable patient and easy to understand and made sure she was giving me the best advice available. I would highly recommend her to be a trainer of staff.

Telephone consult in lockdown was excellent. As I worked on a support telephone line before I retired I really appreciated the pleasant and thorough assistance given.
The consultants were cheerful and very helpful.

Very easy to understand the speech of the advisor. Was he an Aussie or overseas person with a heavy accent on low wages?

published

Commenced contributing to this fund after I retired from full time teaching in 2007. I was very happy with the ability to contact the fund easily and the clarity of the speech of the advisors.
They were always willing to listen to your issue and gave responses in a way which was easily understood.
Generally the growth of the assets makes me confident it is managed well.

I have seen my partners super with Aware increase significantly over mine so I changed to Aware. I am now getting better returns on my super. Staff are friendly and very helpful when I had a small issue recently. The app is excellent and easy to navigate.

I have a conservative growth strategy. Why have I lost over $7,000 in 15 days from my super?
The stock market does not reflect these losses and things are improving after COVID, yet I am losing money by the thousands.
Why are your investment strategies so poor? Or please advise why ‘conservative growth’ fund members are losing so much money?
I do not wish to change this investment option as it is meant to be safest and low risk so why the poor performance?
Not at all happy!

At Aware Super, we remain focused on the long-term performance of your portfolio. There are three main ways we manage exposure to markets over time. These are diversification, active asset allocation and managing foreign currency exposure.

Their conservative growth option has performed horrible when benchmarked against other funds. Aust Super Conservative balanced has delivered approx 8% more in returns over the past three years. IOOF has the multiseries 50 which is similar risk, this has delivered approx 9% more pa over the past three years. Aware has a very ordinary track record with investment performance. Vic Super had a much better strike rate but i understand they are not calling the shots under the new merger.
