Whose super did better than everyone else’s?

There was an average super return of 9.8% for the 2014-15 financial year, as calculated by Chant West.

They ranked the top-performing fund as Queensland’s public sector scheme QSuper, the second-biggest super fund in the country.

It returned 12.3% for its members.

Second placed was MTAA Super, the industry fund for the motor trades returning 11.7% for its members.

While most super funds took a beating in the GFC, Chant West director Warren Chant said the damage has been more than repaired.

“Since the GFC low point at the end of February 2009, growth funds have now delivered an impressive 88 per cent, putting them 37% above their pre-GFC high of October 2007,” he told TheNew Daily.

The full list of the top 10 is below, made up overwhelmingly of industry funds, with just one public sector fund and two retail funds making the list.

Overall, not-for-profit funds – which include industry, public sector and corporate funds (such as Telstra or Qantas) – returned on average 10.2%.

Retail funds, which are generally owned by banks on a for-profit basis, returned 9.6% on average.
