When you join Triple S, your super is invested in the Balanced option. There are several pre-mixed investment options to choose from and you can switch your investment options at any time.

If you’re an existing Triple S member who’s still employed by the SA public sector, you can invest your super across several available investment options.

You are also able to invest your current account balance and future contributions in different investment options.

Before choosing an investment option you should think about:

  • your current financial position
  • your age
  • when you plan to retire

Investment Objectives

The Socially Responsible investment option provides investors with risk and return characteristics likely to be similar to that of an industry growth fund. The risk of a negative return is on average four to six years in 20.

Investment objectives state what each option aims to achieve. They are designed to help members with their investment decisions. The objectives have been developed having regard for the long term performance and characteristics of financial markets and taking into account expert advice provided by specialist investment advisor, JANA. There is no guarantee, however, that the objectives will be met. This is because financial markets are volatile and future returns may vary from past returns. Indeed, for funds with exposure to growth assets there is a material likelihood that returns may be negative in any particular year.

Investment Performance

Rates of return give you a recent and longer-term perspective of how each option has performed. It is important to remember that past performance should not be taken as an indication of future performance. Keep in mind that Triple S is a tax deferred scheme which means returns are reported without taking tax into account. Most other funds are taxed funds and report their investment earnings after tax.
