The highest performing superannuation fund for the quarter ending March 31 was from Arcus Investment Management which recorded a return of 11.0% before tax and fees while the lowest return was from Mercer Super Investment Trust at 7.7%.

Over the full year Arcus also produced the highest return of 28.5% while BT Funds Management lagged the rest with a return of 20.7%, the latest Mercer report shows.

Fund managers with the highest exposure to overseas share markets and foreign currencies fared the best over the quarter and year. Arcus topped the survey through its balanced fund having over half of its assets invested in offshore equities and a higher than average exposure to growth assets (shares and property).

"S&P will be meeting with the fund manager in the coming week to discuss recent changes to the product disclosure statement," said S&P fund analyst Peter Ward.

Comment: Jim Minto's views on the advisory industry
I was pleased this week to get an email from TOWER group managing director Jim Minto where he expresses his views on the future shape of the advisory industry. As readers will know we had plenty of responses from advisers - all supporting the argument I expressed in my Blog.

Jim's email is interesting as it comes - I guess you could say from the other side of the fence. I wonder if any other groups are prepared to respond??? [Read on]
