Maritime Super investment performance


For more information on the past performance of Maritime Super's former investment options prior to 30 April 2021, refer to our fact sheet here.


Hostplus historical investment performance

Since 30 April 2021, Maritime Super's assets have been invested in the Hostplus Pooled Superannuation Trust (PST).  This meant that, from that date, Maritime Super's former investment options were closed. Each of the former Maritime Super investment options were replaced with the Hostplus investment option that most closely matched their investment profile. To help you understand more about the Hostplus investment options that the Maritime Super investment options are now matched to, the table below shows the longer-term performance of those Hostplus PST investment options. As you can see, the table below covers periods before our investment in the PST (i.e. which are investment returns which Maritime Super members did not have access to).

Important notice: The returns set out below do not represent the actual investment performance of Maritime Super or any Maritime Super investment options.  The returns are returns of the Hostplus investment options which are closely matched to the new Maritime Super investment options.  In particular, it is important to understand there are differences between the returns set out below and the returns that would have been achieved by Maritime Super over the same time periods. The returns are therefore provided for information purposes only and should not be confused with actual Maritime Super returns.
