Australian Retirement Trust: Coming together to benefit all Australians


Australian Retirement Trust, the super fund formed through the merger of Sunsuper and QSuper, explores how its recent merger will benefit members.

When Sunsuper and QSuper merged in early 2022, they became Australian Retirement Trust – one of Australia’s largest super funds, with more than 140 years’ combined experience.

Looking after more than $200 billion in retirement savings for more than two million members, Australian Retirement Trust’s size, strength and scale will allow it to deliver better retirement outcomes for its members.

Australian Retirement Trust sees members will benefit from the merger in three main areas:

  • Strong long-term investment returns: Accessing more significant investment opportunities to grow members’ superannuation savings and maximise their retirement income.
  • A commitment to lower fees: Returning profits to members as lower fees and better services.
  • Award-winning products and services: The merged super fund was awarded Best Fund: Member Services for its Super Savings product, and Best Fund: Longevity Product for its QSuper Lifetime Pension at the 2022 Chant West awards , cementing its position as one of the most highly awarded super funds in Australia.

What’s next for Australian Retirement Trust?

After completing the largest merger ever in the Australian superannuation industry, Australian Retirement Trust is now focused on the future, while continuing to support its members to and through retirement.

“We’ve brought together two of the highest performing, most experienced teams in the industry,”  Australian Retirement Trust Chief Executive Officer Bernard Reilly said.

“Now we’re going to continue to grow as a national fund, in a sustainable way.

“Most importantly, we’ll continue to work each day to ensure our members remain secure, confident and protected.”

Welcoming all Australians

Australian Retirement Trust is open to and inclusive of all Australians, no matter where they live or what industry they work in.
