One of the country's biggest superannuation funds has hit back at accusations some retirement schemes are masking the level of risk in their portfolios and appear to be generating greater risk adjusted returns. Hostplus, a $30 billion industry super fund that caters to employees in the hospitality sector, said the way in which it classified assets as being either growth (risky) or defensive had no bearing on its standard measure of risk.
AustralianSuper was the top performing superannuation fund last year after a decision to take overweight positions in global equities paid off. The country's biggest industry retirement scheme with $120 billion of assets recorded a 13.6 per cent gain for the 12 months to December, well above the 10.8 per cent average return across all balanced products, figures from research house Chant West showed.
The universe of new-broom superannuation funds is expected to expand further in 2018 with Melbourne-based Nucleus Wealth among those expected to enter the increasingly crowded sector. Nucleus launched a tailored separately managed account service last July and, with $14 million under management, 140 clients on board and 1500 individuals in the process of signing up, hopes to introduce a super iteration of the service by July this year.
IOOF has accused retail super funds of waging a tit-for-tat war against industry funds, arguing that calls for super funds to appoint more independent directors have nothing to do with protecting consumers. https://t.co/CaAcdb7GVh
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
