Profits to members

Profits to members

REI Super is an industry superannuation fund. All our investment profits are returned to members’ accounts and no dividends are paid to shareholders. This translates into lower fees and higher returns for our members.

You can see the difference yourself through the Super Rater on the Industry Super funds website.

About industry superannuation funds

When choosing the right super fund for you, it’s important to know the difference between an industry super fund and a retail or bank owned super fund. 

  • Industry super funds were first established in the 1980s to protect Australian workers’ super from the high fee and commission products that were then common in the retail superannuation market
  • Industry super funds are run only to profit members
  • Industry super funds aim to provide above average investment returns to members, while keeping management fees as low as possible
  • Under the Federal Award, REI Super is the Industry super fund for people who work in the real estate industry
  • From 1 July 2016, anyone can join REI Super and enjoy the same benefits as our current members.
