What our members are saying about us
What makes LGS a certified responsible investor?
Trust your long-term super savings with a super fund that cares about your future.
If it's not good for you, it's not good enough for us
Our responsible investment approach means we avoid industries and companies that have a negative impact on people and the environment and focus more on the companies that benefit you and your communities. We restrict investments in tobacco, weapons and coal mining. And that’s only the beginning.
Taking a stance on climate change
We’re the only Australian industry super fund to restrict fossil fuels across all investment options. We’re also ranked number one in Australia and number two globally for environmentally sustainable investing. This ranking comes from the 2016 Asset Owners Disclosure Project, where 500 of the world’s biggest investors are annually ranked based on how they manage climate change risk.
Awarded by judges, recommended by members
We’re proud to be awarded Money magazine’s Best Green Super Fund and Super Fund of the Year 2016 (medium category) at the Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards. But we’re even prouder that our members recommend us for delivering exceptional value and service.
Myth buster: Sustainability doesn’t cost you more
It doesn’t cost you more to invest your super with LGS. As an industry fund that returns profits to our members, not shareholders, we’re busting the myth that sustainability costs you more through our competitive fees matched with sustainable, long-term returns.
I have been a member of LGS since its inception and continue to be very satisfied in all aspects of the professional services provided over my years of membership. I have personally referred fellow employees for advice/assistance and have always done so in the knowledge that they would be well served.
LGS is very proactive on the issue of super for women. As you know due to the nature of pay rates and family responsibilities, women normally are unable to fund their retirement due to lack of enough equity in their super…I applaud the initiative of LGS.
On behalf of my colleagues who met with you today, I would like to express our thanks for visiting us at Westmead and for sharing your knowledge and experience. You have given us ‘food for thought’ and motivated us to follow up on outstanding matters.
