  • Gender super gap is reducing… but remains significant

    The latest figures from our Self-managed super funds: a statistical overview 2016–17 shows the super gap between men and women is reducing over time but still remains high. At 30 June 2017, male SMSF members held 58% of total assets compared with 42% for females.

    Over the five years to June 2017 average member contributions grew 80% for females compared with 71% for males, and average employer contributions increased by 25% for females compared with 23% for males.

    Average female member balances over the period increased by 32% to $603,000, while average male balances increased by 25% to $736,000. These increases were largely driven by a spike in 2016–17.
