Future Super leading dilligently in Ethical Super
Have been with Future Super for years, loving every minute of it.
A diligently Ethical leader in Super with strong growth, with minimal fees, in an environment where many others are not as above board as they claim. I Love Future Super.
Go Future Super!
I don't want to be investing in fossil fuels. I cannot therefore be a member of a superfund that does so. Future Super does NOT invest in fossil fuels! Only renewable energy! That makes me feel good ;) Also, it was super easy to make the switch (pun intended).
Super with Principles!
I have been with Future Super for 4 years and I couldn't be happier. Apart from the obvious reasons of wanting to extend life on the planet by denying fossil fuel industries with my money, I would recommend Future Super simply because they are great to deal with.
My super my choice
I have not written a review before. This will be interesting. I have been meaning to change my super provider for year's but have not found a provider that I liked, to me they are all the same just taking money to line Thier pockets and doing the same thing investing in consumerism and greed. I don't think I will ever see my super any way. Then a friend shared future super with me. I read what they are trying to achieve and I thought excellent a provider actually doing something to help other's not just about making profits but making a difference. So I transferred all my super to Future Super. I still think I want see my super as I will be working till the day I die but at least I know now it is doing good. Have a bee-autiful day

Questions & Answers
If I transfer 60000 super what is the net of fee return per annum on your different investment options
"Returns shown are to 31 Oct 2019.
^ Returns provided are after fees and taxes have been taken out. Returns for periods of greater than one year are on a per annum compound basis. Return of capital and the performance of your investment in the Fund are not guaranteed. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance."
That last sentence is standard for every superannuation and investment company.
Superannuation returns at retirement are no good if we don't have a liveable planet due to climate change induced by man's fossil fuel obsession....
Investing in renewable sources of energy is really investing in the future of the planet. But that is only important if you intend to live on this planet in the future...
I am happy with my current super fund but I am researching Life/TPD insurance options through super. Does anyone have insurance through this super fund and if so how has your experience been so far?
Hi I am a Future Super member. While I love the ethical side of it and returns are good so far, the fees are very high. Do you anticipate that these might reduce as the fund acquires more members and the set up costs are reduced?
I'm looking for an answer to this, too. I recently rolled my super into this fund because of some good reviews, but I'm disappointed that the fees are so high, and no one seems to answer this point when it is raised. I may roll over my super to another fund unless I get some satisfactory answers.

Hi Lauren, we're glad you're liking the ethics and the returns! Here's some info regarding our fees:
Firstly, we believe in the work we do, and we know we do it well. We invest lots of time and resources into our ethical screening process, making sure our investments are aligned with our members' values, and monitor the companies we invest in to ensure they continue to uphold these values. While this is a cost, it is a vital element of our commitment to our members.
Our fees sit within the moderate bracket for ethical funds, which does sit higher than some industry super funds.
We recently introduced an initiative where our members who have balances less than $6,000 will not be charged our dollar-based admin fee. This is an improvement on our older policy which was to not charge this fee for members with balances below $1000. This protects our lower balance members and helps their balance to grow. In addition to this, we also offer a rebate of the dollar-based fee to our members who are on parental leave as we believe our members shouldn’t be penalised for taking time out of the workforce.
Deep ethical screening takes time and money, and our fast growing fund is smaller than most industry funds.
In answer to your question: yes! As Future Super grows, it is our intention to steadily reduce fees where and when we can, and we've already had a fee reduction last year.
