More 'insight' into our potential merger

In March 2021, we announced that we have entered into an agreement with one of Australia's largest and fastest-growing super funds, Sunsuper, to explore a potential merger of our funds as a way of powering your super. In the latest edition of your member newsletter Insight , we provide some more background about this, the trends driving superannuation mergers, and what it all means for APSS members. 

This edition also looks at some broader super industry changes coming in from 1 July 2021, including new before-tax and after-tax contribution limits.

Finally, this edition also provides your regular quarterly investment update, this time for the quarter that ended 31 March 2021; a quarter that saw share markets continue to climb, helping to generate positive returns for the APSS's High Growth and Balanced investment options, while the Conservative and Cash options were flat.
