Funding Australia: Superannuation and the Financial System

Funding Australia presents ISA research evaluating the contribution superannuation has made to the Australian economy over the past two decades.

The report confirms that super is not only performing its objective of supporting retirement, but has contributed substantially to building our economy and our nation.

The report finds that super is already providing over $70 billion in retirement benefits each year – double that of the aged pension, and just last year the super system invested an aggregate of about $30 billion in infrastructure, private equity, and direct property.
