What the researchers say

Originally established in 1987 for Tasmanian corporate employees, Tasplan Super has been a public offer industry fund since 2007. Following the merger with Quadrant Super in November 2015, the fund is currently going through a successor fund transfer with RBF Accumulation Scheme to create a single Tasmanian super fund.

Tasplan MySuper option is a rebadged version of its existing Balanced option, which has outperformed the SuperRatings Index over the long term. Choice members can also access eight additional investment strategies.

Fees for the MySuper Balanced option are lower than the industry average across all assessed account balances, with the Member Administration fee capped at $500 p.a. No commissions are paid to financial advisers. However, transaction fees apply for switches, contribution splitting and withdrawals.

Tasplan provides eligible MySuper members with age-based Basic Cover for Death & TPD upon joining. Members can also apply to increase their cover and add optional Income Protection insurance.

Members can access fee for service financial planning through Quadrant First in Tasmania and Link Advice in other states, as well as free health and well-being seminars. Tasplan's new look website offers interactive features, which contain improved fact sheets, calculators, and educational material such as 'Women & Super' video podcasts assisting members in their engagement.
