You might be one of the hundreds of new members to join Australian Catholic Superannuation this year and had the opportunity to attend one of the induction sessions run across the country by our team of experienced relationship managers. If you are new to working in Catholic education or a Catholic agency, you may wonder just who is Australian Catholic Superannuation. That makes sense. We don’t have billboards, don’t sponsor football teams and don’t advertise on TV. This might be your first time coming across our name.
It sounds cliché, but we are different from other funds. We are specialists in supporting Catholic educators and agency staff in planning for their financial future. We are the fund for people who share our culture and values, care about ethical investing and want strong returns driven by responsible governance.
We are an award-winning not-for-profit organisation creating innovative products that support your future planning needs, and provide excellent education and member services.
Now that you are working for a Catholic employer, you will be seeing a lot more of us! We visit workplaces and venues across the country to run seminars, workshops and one-on-one sessions to answer your questions about superannuation.
You will see us out and about at Catholic and education events. For example, we were at the Australian Catholic Youth Festival where we were able to talk with people about making the most of their money when they are just starting in the workforce. And, when we meet you at education conferences, we’re on hand to answer your questions, from your super and insurance to navigating your payroll system.
We are proud to support events like Catholic Schools Week in NSW / ACT, Catholic Education Week in QLD and Catholic Arts in WA because we know the value of Catholic education and want to help spread the word!
Make sure you check out the insights we share in different Catholic publications. We will discuss how legislative changes and market movements might affect your retirement plans, share tips for making the most of your money and talk with education specialists who share their thoughts about the future of the industry.
Now that you’re a member, you’ll be the first to be notified when we host a seminar in your area. Our seminars are designed to help you better understand and take control of your super and finances. We host many different events, from introductions to super (Super, Simple) to intensive retirement planning (Retirement 101). We also run seminars on aged care for those members that need advice in this area. Keep an eye open for a session coming soon!
Why do we do this? It is important that we support your needs. Everything we do is with the best interests of our members at heart. As an industry fund that specialises in Catholic education and agencies, we are not beholden to shareholders, and we do not pay dividends. We return profits to members or use them for your benefit.
We are proud to be an excellent fund for people who work in the Catholic system, sharing our ethics and values. I am sure we will see you soon at your workplace!
