Annualised figures are the average per year returns of the rated option based on the cumulative returns for the past 5 years to 30/06/2015, 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.

What the researchers say

Intrust Super's Core Super is a simple, flexible and low-cost offering that has been specifically designed to suit employees in the hospitality, tourism and retail industries. Intrust Super continues to go from strength to strength retaining the SuperRatings Platinum rating in 2016 for the tenth consecutive year. The Fund was also a SuperRatings 2016 MySuper of the Year finalist.

Core Super's investment menu consists of three multi and five asset-specific options. The Balanced option outperformed the SuperRatings Index in 2015, with long-term returns also positioned above the index.

Fees are competitive across all account balances assessed, while offering members the flexibility of unlimited switches between investment options at no additional cost.

Core Super's insurance offering is competitive with members automatically receiving Death and Total & Permanent Disablement (TPD) cover upon joining. The AAL's are set at a maximum of 4 units for members under age 40, while Income Protection (IP) provides 90% salary coverage plus 10% SG over a two years benefit period. The maximum cover of $50,000 per month supports the strong relative positioning of the fund in their insurance assessment. Reduced waiting periods for Income protection is given as incentive for members with continuous cover and who have not made a claim for a minimum of two years. Waiting periods can be backdated up to a maximum of 21 days for members who have not claimed for more than 6 years.
