Best Superannuation Funds (Australia)
« on: April 09, 2019, 05:23:21 PM »
What are the best funds to choose for Australia? Are there any that are basically the same as buying vanguard?

I like sunsuper. Can choose etfs to invest it. There is previous conversation about this but after a quick look I couldn't find it. Might be in the Austalian Investment thread.

I looked at setting up a SMSF precisely so that I could "just buy Vanguard" but the costs and administrative overhead seemed overly onerous to me.


After much analysis paralysis (that cost me dearly in fees) I moved my super in February into the HostPlus Indexed Balanced fund. This was the closest I was able to find to just buying Vanguard.

I went with this approach too.

SunSuper and Australian Super are two good ones.

Mr Barefoot likes Hostplus. You would also do well in UniSuper or First State Super.

As long as you stay away from gimmicks like SpaceShip Voyager, and retail super funds generally, you should be ok.
