About Rest

Established in 1988, Rest is one the largest funds by membership, with around 1.7 million members and more than $54 billion of funds under management (June 2020).


The Retail Employees Superannuation Trust (Rest) was established in 1988. We’re open to all throughout Australia and we’re one of the largest funds by membership.

Profit to members

Rest is a not for profit superannuation fund. For the last 30 years we’ve put our members first. As an industry fund, we’re membership based and do not have any shareholders. This means all profits go back to members. Our fees are among the lowest of any superannuation fund.

We offer our members:

  • Low fees
  • Investment choice
  • Competitive long-term performance
  • Value for money insurance

Achieving your personal best

Our mission is to help you achieve your personal best retirement outcome.

The key to this is recognising there is no uniform ‘ideal’ retirement. Your personal best will look different to other members’ and will depend on your circumstances. 

As one of the largest funds in Australia, our members are diverse. We represent people from all corners of the country – in capital cities, regional centres and small towns. We represent teenagers working their first jobs to retirees in their 90s. From those who’ve worked part time or casually to members who’ve taken us with them throughout their profession careers.

We represent members who work for over 200,000 contributing employers across the country (June 2020)  – members who work on shop floors, in distribution centres, warehouses and in head offices, making sure our members can get the most of their super.

How is Rest managed?

The Fund is managed on a day-to-day basis by a Trustee company, Retail Employees Superannuation Pty Limited.
