It's not just super, it's your independence

ANZ's in-depth survey of 1000 Australians in March this year found 'independence' is a priority for most Australians yet we often dismiss, ignore and overlook the financial power of superannuation to achieve this independence. 

It shows that many of us don’t fully understand how superannuation is essential to the financial freedom we seek in life, even though it is one of the most valuable assets we’ll ever have.

On these pages we challenge that thinking with a clear insight showing super is what gives us choice, comfort and freedom, during the time of life we need it most.

None of us should be dismissing the power of superannuation. If you find the word itself hard to engage with, stop thinking of it as ‘just super’, and think of it as your independence, and what your working life is heading toward.
