Annualised figures are the average per year returns of the rated option based on the cumulative returns for the past 5 years to 30/06/2016, past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Performance and fee data is based on the option which is rated by SuperRatings and stated on each product's landing page.

Benchmark investment information - how performance is measured

To ensure comparability for consumers, the RateCity superannuation comparison is based on the asset allocation of each of the MySuper/Pension products, irrespective of the name of the investment option. This methodology allows consumers to compare products on a like for like basis and removes any ambiguities associated with the name of the investment option. For example, an investment option may be classified as growth, however its asset allocation may in fact mean it should be classified as high growth. By using the asset allocation as the dominant identifier, we believe this provides the most robust framework for consumers to compare funds and recognise that this is a consistent approach to that of SuperRatings methodology.

Option Type Percentage of Growth Assets
min-max %
High Growth 91-100%
Growth 77-90%
Balanced 60-76%
Conservative Balanced 41-59%
Capital Stable 20-40%
Secure 0-19%

What the researchers say

Established in 1993, AMP SuperLeader is designed to be a simple and cost effective superannuation solution for small and medium sized employers. AMP SuperLeader MySuper was established in January 2014.

The AMP SuperLeader - MySuper investment option uses a lifecycle investment approach, which reduces the level of growth assets a member is exposed to as they approach retirement. The MySuper 1960s option has underperformed the SuperRatings Index over the last two years. Long term returns are currently not available. Choice members also have access to four Diversified investment options which are available in the AMP SuperLeader product.

Fees associated with this product are higher than the industry average across medium and large account balances assessed. However, no switching fees are charged, although changing investment options may incur transaction costs. Exit fees apply for partial and full withdrawals.

Eligible employee members automatically receive 3 units of Death only and Death & TPD cover upon joining. Additional cover can also be accessed up to a maximum level of $1,000,000. Income Protection cover is not offered through this product.

AMP's website contains a variety of financial simulators and retirement calculators, as well as a Q&AMP info centre, which provides members with a wealth of educational materials, tools and online learning. Furthermore, the fund's interactive digital advice tool 'AMP Goals 360' helps members to plan and keep on track of their retirement goals.

Members can manage their superannuation on desktops, tablets and their mobile phones via My AMP or My Portfolio. Furthermore, with the AMP app, members can access banking, insurance, investment and superannuation accounts all from one place.
