June 2022

By now you may have heard that Active Super is exploring a potential merger with Vision Super, a similar-sized fund with a common history that shares our same core values.
 
 Our ambition is to deliver strong investment returns and services to our members and considering this merger opportunity should help us achieve this.
 
 We believe that a potential merger may allow us to harness economies of scale so that we can compete more effectively in a rapidly changing superannuation market, deliver valued services to our existing members, including greater investment in digital services, and help us attract new members to the fund.
 
 Rest assured, we will keep you informed as merger discussions progress. Should a decision be made to merge, it will be in the best financial interests of members.
 
You do not need to take any action and we remain committed to continuing to provide quality services to our members.
 
Members can also call the Member Services Centre on 1300 547 873 or +61 2 9333 3000, weekdays between 8.30am and 6.00pm or seek information through the online chat service.
 
If you would like to know more, please refer to our FAQs.
