Overview

Local Government Super's Balanced investment option provides Australians with the option of investing across a wide range of asset classes while restricting investment in controversial or high risk companies. The Balanced strategy generally invests a proportion of its funds in growth assets such as Australian and international equities and property, semi liquids and private equity and the balance in income-producing assets, such as interest-bearing securities. This combination offers real investment growth above the CPI rate over a 3 year period. There are more assets that produce income, which makes the strategy more stable than the High-Growth and Balanced Growth strategies.
