For the ninth consecutive year, members of the AIA Brisbane Investment Management Group (BIMG) have compiled a summary of investment returns and other data for the best performing Managed Investment Products.

Changes have been made to the scope of the report for the 2015 issue as follows:

  • Inclusion of new subsection providing information on Public Offer Superannuation Funds
  • Reinstatement of reporting on Multi-Sector Managed Funds
  • Reinstatement of the Watch List

As in previous years, performance and other key statistics are presented in tables.

Key benefits for AIA Members are that this report:

  • Provides a reference point for the performance of Managed Investment Products compared to an individually managed portfolio of selected direct equities
  • Provides a reference point for SMSF trustees to reflect on the investment performance of their self managed funds relative to that achieved by public offer superannuation funds
  • Identifies products from the top quartile of Managed Investment Products and provides information about them that is not generally available in the public domain
  • Provides key data sheets and references for individual  Managed Investment Products across a wide spectrum of asset categories
  • Provides summary information about Managed Investment Products prepared by an independent source that is not associated with any promoter
