    Hi all, been relatively young (ie- mid 30's ) I am looking at an aggresive growth super funds to invest my super in.

    I am after a Good track record, Death & TPD insurance offering as well as simple and easy to understand fees.

    Any recommendations ?

    Hi Here_to_learn,

    A super fund is a structure so it doesn't actually have returns itself.

    It's the actual investments, which you can choose, that have the return.
    Be careful of past returns as they are not an indication of future performance, a few investors in property funds have found that out.

    If you want to check out the costs of insurance, different superannuation funds usually supply tables based on your age and per $1,000 of insurance for Life and TPD.

    Good luck,

    Dan

    PS Before making an investment or insurance decision speak to your FPA registered Financial Planner.

    I am with Aust. Super returns are generally good for a super fund.
    Fees last time I chacked were not bad.

    I have income protection and D&TPD through them and the premiums are taken from my super which suits me fine.

    btw, If I were you I'd park my super into cash or capital guaranteed for 6 months or so till things settle down with shares.

    Cheers
