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

brightday Complete Super was launched in December 2014 by MAP Funds Management Ltd, which is owned by OneVue. brightday Complete Super was a finalist of the 2016 Best New Product Award in recognition of its innovative approach to providing superannuation solutions to individuals.

Members have access to 6 Diversified and Single-Sector investment options. Access to Managed Funds, Direct Shares, Term Deposits and SMA Model Portfolios is also provided, however, additional costs may be incurred. The Balanced option underperformed the SuperRatings Index in 2016, although we note it has a lower allocation to growth assets than a typical Balanced (60-76) strategy. Long term performance is not currently available.

Fees for this product are lower than the industry average across all assessed account balances. However, a minimum administration fee of $250 p.a. is applicable. Exit fees and switching fees are also charged, with members entitled to 2 free investment switches each year.
