Aware Super

Previously known as First State Super, we changed our name to Aware Super in September 2020.

First State Super has been the fund for people who value community as well as personal gain since 1992. In July 2020 we merged with VicSuper and together we are one of Australia's largest super funds, managing more than $120 billion in savings for more than 1 million members.

Our members work in roles that breathe life into their communities and they expect us to do the same. So we invest in assets that we believe will make a positive difference today - improving our communities, building a more sustainable economy and supporting employment both locally and globally at the same time as providing strong long-term returns.
