Research partner SuperRatings determined the finalists across 19 categories this year including MySuper of the Year, Career Fund of the Year, Retirement Offering of the Year, and Best Low-cost Offering.

TelstraSuper is a finalist across nine categories this year, while Aware Super has scored eight nominations, and Australian Retirement Trust, HESTA and UniSuper are finalists across seven categories each.

The Super Fund of the Year Awards program has leveraged SuperRatings robust awards methodology for assessing and benchmarking Australia’s leading superannuation funds.

The judging criteria for the award categories are both quantitative and qualitative, acknowledging the range of key factors that contribute toward retirement outcomes for Australians.

Each award category was open to all APRA or state-regulated superannuation funds operating in Australia.

Superannuation funds that are covered by the SuperRatings database were automatically considered.

Finalists for each award category were compiled based on a comprehensive list of criteria.

The SuperRatings Research Team was responsible for determining the nominees, while the Research Manager and Insights Manager will be responsible for determining the winners.

The highest-scoring winner will receive the coveted Fund of the Year award.

This is determined based on its overall peer relative position across all products it offers, with consideration given to its investment performance and processes, fees, insurance offering, administration capabilities, member servicing and governance practices.

Momentum Media (parent company of Super Review) determined the finalists for the Industry Thought Leader of the Year category. This category acknowledges growth, business development, diversity, leadership, innovation, business excellence, and contributions to Australia’s financial advice sector.

All businesses and professionals that meet the eligibility criteria from across the finance industry were encouraged to participate in the awards program.
