Corporate governance

With almost 32,000 members and about $7 billion in assets, Qantas Super is now one of Australia’s largest corporate super funds, and is run entirely for the benefit of members.

Exemplary governance is one of the core foundations of our business strategy. This regulates everything we do, including how objectives are set and achieved, how risk is monitored and assessed and how performance is optimised.
