The Better Alternative
Been with Future for 3+ years - transparency is good, accessibility a simple click process and steady growth and returns. As a long standing 'Greenie', matches my investment preferences. Have recommended the fund to others.
They are fantastic
Relatively new client but have appreciated the outstanding professionalism and respect shown. Very easy to set up and maintain. 100% transparent and aligned to my ethics of creating a better planet in terms of mitigating climate change etc.
Can't go wrong
Been with Future Super since they first started 5 years ago. Only criticism would be the process for getting insurance included but otherwise no complaints. Great returns for me. Can sleep a little easier knowing you're supporting an amazing cause.
This is fabulous
I am relieved to have found a place where my super can assist rather than damage our sustainable future on earth. It also seems to protect my funds from the falling value of fossil fuels and associated industries.
Investing in the planet to keep it habitable.
I jumped at the opportunity to join with Future Super, and am very happy that I did. From the beginning it was clear they want to provide a meaningful engaging and transparent service. Changing to Future Super is one simple thing you can do to ensure we have a future on this planet.
I'm very happy with Future Super
I'm happy that my money is being used to facilitate development of renewable energy power generation, & not on fossil fuels. I trust Future Super to make ethical investments on my behalf. The returns are solid, & I find the portal easy to use & understand.
The only super worth considering
There's no super on a a dead planet. If your super isn't fossil-fuel free then there is no future for your super at all. I have been with Future Super from the beginning, and always found them helpful and easy to deal with.
Love what they do with my money
If I'm going to give my money to a super fund then I want to know they invest it wisely and will support the future of a healthy planet. Therefore choosing Future Super was a very easy choice for me. I also don't have time to waste trying to work around complicated web sites with to much jargon, the future super platform is very easy to use.
Perfect way of making my money count for something worthwhile
Great fund so far in regards to ease of joining, simplicity and design of website, portfolio options and fees (slightly more than the industry standard but a small price to pay to ease my conscience). Not been with them long enough to grade fund performance.
thumbs up for conscious super
I feel this is a great way to invest my super and support mother earth. It was quick and simple to sign up. I hope more people switch to this form of conscious superheat cares for the planet. Thank you
So glad I made the switch!
I have just transferred my super over to Future Super. They are so much more engaging than my previous fund, letting me know of any administrative changes and what my money is being used to fund. Fees are reasonable, and it looks like the fund will outperform my previous one. Most importantly for me my money is no longer being used to fund fossil fuels and other harmful industries and is actively supporting the transition to renewables.
Great fund to take money out of earth exploiting companies
Joined only a month ago.
Best fund if you care about the environment and to be part of a change movement. Your dollars count! Investments seem to be legit so far.

Ethical and website works well
Ethical and oriented towards renewables.
Friendly helpful people at helpdesk.
Website works well.
Best ethical fund available in my view, and I have tried four of them.
I have been with Future Super for over a year – have made a contribution each year and in addition one rollover.
Great idea but the fees are ridiculous
The fees on even the basic passive index fund are 14 times higher than the equivalent fund at hostplus which is almost identical. All Future Super has done is taken the ASX200 and removed some companies that are bad for the environment. That shouldn't cost 14 times the alternative.
Their other funds have fees approaching 2%. That is out on the extremes of fees for superfunds in Australia. It's unclear how this is justified. High fees over time eat a huge amount of your retirement savings. I've tried to contact the company to ask about these issues but have received no reply.
I LOVE the idea of driving change via our super, and badly want to join a superfund that uses my money to invest in renewable energy. However I think this fund is exploiting people's goodwill in order to make themselves rich. If they really cared about the environment as their primary concern, they would set the fees much much lower, in line with other super funds, so that more people joined. Why does it cost 14 times the alternative to remove a handful of companies from a passive index fund? It doesn't. Why then are they charging that much?
Finally a super company with ethics and transparency
It's great to find a super company that shares the same environmental values as me without compromising the bottom line return. I joined just over 2 years ago and have never looked back.
I feel at home with Future Super
I have been with Future Super since July 2015 and have never regretted making the move. It is reassuring to be with fund which ploughs it investments into renewables and ethical companies.
Whenever I have made contact, the staff have been prompt, friendly and helpful.
I am satisfied with return on investment and have encouraged others to join Future Super.
A super fund that is both ethically AND financially sound :D
This is my third year with Future Super, and so far I've been happy with everything. Not only are they ethically and financially sound, but I also found their processes to be incredibly transparent - which I really loved.
Divesting from fossil fuels
Very glad to have my super divested from fossil fuels. Have been with future super for about 4 years. Returns seem good, in line with other funds from what I can tell. Website is very user friendly. Very happy.
From what I've heard and read about this Superannuation fund is that it's most likely the most forward-thinking fund that there is. I was tossing up between Australian Ethical Superfund and Future Super and after sitting on the fence for a while I decided that I would take the most aggressive stance I could, that being the Renewables Plus Option from Future Super. The primary reason for doing so is that I want to do whatever I can to increase the probability of living in a sustainable environment when I get to my retirement age.
If there is no action today, there will (most likely) be no point in getting to tomorrow.
+ Having a B Corp Impact Score of 129.7 doesn't hurt either :)
Smart thinking for the future.
A smart and thoughtful investment system for our super funds. Divesting from fossils is a marvelous idea. We cannot continue with the current ideals of tear everything up and burn as quick as possible for short term profits of a few.
