Superannuation vs Share vs Property – which one wins?!

Property Club Property Market Insights Leave a Comment

Hi All,

Hope you’ve had a great week!

Following on from my article last week – we had a lot of people asking us:

Is MY Superannuation fund one of the worst-performing in the country?

The report we have looked at 600 of the largest superannuation funds, to find the most overpriced and underperforming superannuation funds in Australia

If you are 35 years old and earning the average Australian income of just on $80,000 per year and have your superannuation with one of these companies, you would be just on $200,000 worse off when you retire!

Australians with their superannuation in these funds, face an average of 2% in fees, when many of the better performing funds charge around 1%.

Collectively these worst performing funds, manage $7 billion in superannuation money, which ends up costing Australians just over $150 million per year in extra fees!

Yes, please send me a list of the worst performing super funds in Australia, so I can see if mine is there!

Which brings us to the question, what is better, Super, Shares or property?

Well . . . Russell Investments put together a long term investing report to rank the best performing asset class for the last 10 and 20 years.

 No real surprises to see the results :

For the past 10 years on a gross of fees and tax basis, 

  1. Residential property was the top performing asset class followed by 
  2. Global shares (hedged) and 
  3. Global fixed income (hedged) Australian listed property, cash and Australian shares were the bottom three asset classes, as shown in Figure 4.

For the past 20 years on a gross of fees and tax basis, 

  1. Residential property was the top-performing asset class, followed by 
  2. Australian shares, 
  3. Global shares (hedged) and 
  4. Global listed property (unhedged), while cash, global shares (unhedged) and Australian fixed income were the bottom three asset classes, as shown in Figure 5.

Pretty clear, simple and the easy winner is . . . Residential Property!
