Qantas Super's investment options
We have a range of tailored investment options for you to choose from, helping you invest your super to match your needs and lifestyle goals.
Glidepath is an automated investment option that lets you take a back seat and put your super on autopilot.
When you’re younger and have a longer investment timeframe, Glidepath will expose you to more higher risk, growth assets, and fewer lower risk, defensive assets. This is because you have a longer time to retirement, and therefore have time to weather a downturn in the market.
As you get older and move through Glidepath, your super will be invested in more defensive assets and fewer growth assets.
It’s important to remember that Glidepath doesn’t take into consideration your personal needs and circumstances. It’s been developed based on our assessment of the investment needs of a typical Qantas Super accumulation member, aiming to provide a comfortable1 level of income in retirement.
If you don’t make an investment choice when joining Qantas Super, your account will be invested in Glidepath.
