It has been reported that Australian women retire with 47% less superannuation than men. By 2025 Australian Women will hold 1.5 trillion in superannuation. Many young people are unaware of the way their superannuation account works let alone where their superannuation is being invested. Verve Super’s purpose is to be a superannuation found that is 100% focused on serving women and ethical investment. They also run programs dedicated to equipping and empowering women with financial literacy skills. If you would like to have a session with the team at Verve Super to discuss the basics of superannuation and your financial literacy, please get into contact with us so we can organise a time that suits. Otherwise stay tuned or come visit at the SRC to read and access more information from Verve Super.
