Investment choice - take as little or as much control as you like

With Mercer you get choice. You can let us do the hard work for you, or you can take control and choose from a range of carefully selected investment options to suit your needs.

Set your lifetime strategy with Mercer SmartPath™
 
If you prefer to leave it to us, you’ll be in safe hands.  Mercer SmartPath uses sophisticated thinking to continually match your investments to your life stage. When you’re younger, with years of working life ahead of you, we invest in more growth assets such as shares. As you get older, and retirement gets closer, we’ll focus more on defensive assets such as cash and term deposits.

Sit in the driver’s seat and invest in ASX 300 with Mercer Direct
 
If you want to be in control of your investments, you can. With Mercer Direct you’ll have direct access to the ASX 300, Exchange Traded Funds and term deposits – all within your super. You need to have a $20k balance to invest in it and some other terms and conditions apply. This is available to some, not all plans in Mercer Super. Check your PDS to make sure you’ve got access to it.

Change your investments whenever you like
 
You can change your investment option online at any time and there are lots more to choose from, including socially responsible investment options.
