How does it work?
The Fixed Term Investment option works like a fixed-term savings account - your super is invested for a fixed term (12 months) and earns interest at a predetermined rate (so long as you hold the investment for the full term), subject to the access restrictions under superannuation law.

What are the benefits of the Fixed Term Investment?
You'll benefit from:
- a predetermined return at a competitive interest rate if held until the end of the term
- favourable tax rates for super
- the flexibility to split your remaining super with Maritime Super’s five other market-linked investment options
It’s suitable for members who like the idea of knowing in advance the investment return for the next year – you know what your return will be, which gives you peace of mind.
