What type of investor am I?
Where to start
You can choose how your super is invested. As no two people's financial situations are the same, their investment requirements also differ.
Before making a choice, it's important to understand the risks of investing as your appetite for risk within investment may differ depending on a number of factors.
Our “What type of investor am I?” calculator is a great place to start to help you determine which investment option(s) may be right for you. When you’ve used the calculator you’ll be assigned a risk profile which comes with an explanation you can keep as a reference. Super SA recommends that before making any financial decisions, you consider the appropriateness of the information obtained from this calculator in the context of your own objectives, financial situation and needs, refer to the relevant Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) seek financial advice from a licensed financial adviser in relation to your financial position and requirements.
It's important to continually monitor your investment choice, particularly when your circumstances change.
