Frequently asked questions

  • Why doesn’t the Brighter Super brand have the ISA logo (Industry SuperFunds) like some other super funds?

    The Industry SuperFunds (ISA) Joint Marketing program is an initiative that funds pay to be part of. We decided not to continue this partnership with Brighter Super, which was a decision that considered the benefits for our members against the annual costs involved. This decision put the financial interests of our members first, which is always our priority as a profit-for-members group.
  • What does this mean?

    It means Brighter Super cannot use the ISA logo in marketing or branding and will not be one of the brands included with 11 other funds in the ISA Joint Marketing Program.
  • We are still involved with Industry Super Australia?

    Yes. Industry Super Holdings (ISH) is the parent company of entities such as ISA Joint Marketing Program (Industry SuperFunds) and IFM Investors. Our fund is a shareholder in ISH, with a holding worth approximately $16.4m. Our investment team also uses IFM Investors to manage portfolios in Bonds and Global Equities.
  • Does this mean Brighter Super is still the brand for the energy industry?

    Yes. Brighter Super is proud of its heritage as the fund for the energy industry. We continue to run our group with the same ethos, purely to profit our members. Brighter Super has retained its energy industry members and partners and we sponsor and support other partnerships in the electrical industry, including Mates in Energy, as well as MEA (Master Electricians Association) and NECA (National Electrical Contractors Association), among others.
