Our History

REI Super was founded on the 5th of February 1975, which makes us one of the earliest industry super funds established in Australia.

Since its inception in 1975, REI Super has been run only to benefit members, rather than shareholders. The fund’s history spans the transition from super for the few to super for all working Australians.

We owe our longevity to several factors:

Real estate industry affiliation

Our long-standing participation in and active support of the real estate industry – through our members and employers and the real estate industry associations.

Run only to benefit members

Since the Fund’s inception in 1975 we have been run only to benefit members, rather than shareholders.

Our permanent commitment to this business model has enabled us to keep fees very low and to return more money to members’ accounts.

Real representation of members and employers

Any active REI Super member can stand for election to the Fund’s Trustee Board. That’s been the case for many years and it remains the case today.
