OUR MESSAGE TO YOU

Embracing digital

Welcome to the 2015/16 Maritime Super Annual Report. We’re excited about this issue of the annual report as it’s our first ever online interactive version.

 

In fact this financial year has been a year of ‘firsts’ with the launch of a number of new digital initiatives including personalised video and online statements, three new calculators, new e-newsletter and two new social media channels – Facebook and Instagram. These new initiatives are about helping all of our members make the most of their super, and providing the appropriate support and guidance along the way.

Focus on investment growth

While short-term volatility in markets is likely to prevail going forward, we continue to remind members that superannuation is a long term investment and it’s best to stay put during periods of short term volatility.

 

However we recognise that not all members feel comfortable with the ongoing ups and downs, that’s why we introduced the Managed Volatility Process (MVP) back in 2014. The MVP is designed to help members who want investment growth but have less tolerance to extreme market volatility. If you feel uneasy about investments markets or you’re unsure about your investment strategy, we recommend you speak to one of our financial planners who can help you stay on course to achieve your financial goals.

The Trustee regularly reviews the investment strategy of the Fund and this year took the decision to change the investment strategy of the Moderate investment option to be more growth-oriented in line with what is felt to be a suitable default investment strategy for the broader membership.
