Summary of Retirement Income Strategy


The AMP Retirement Income Strategy (the Strategy) is comprised of the Retirement Income Strategies for the AMP Super Fund and Wealth Personal Superannuation and Pension Fund.  The Strategy is issued by N.M. Superannuation Pty Ltd as trustee (the Trustee).

The Strategy aims to increase comfort and confidence for Australian retirees. Our strategic ambition is to be the leading provider of retirement solutions in Australia, and to support retirees with a broad range of guidance, support and advice to empower them to enjoy their best possible retirement. This aligns to the Trustee’s vision to operate with autonomy and objectivity in providing the best possible retirement outcomes for members.

This Strategy applies to all AMP superannuation members approaching and in retirement, and more broadly to all Australians who wish to experience a more comfortable and confident retirement by joining AMP.

Member annual outcomes assessments

As trustee of the AMP Super Fund and Wealth Personal Superannuation and Pension Funds, every year we’re required to assess the performance of the super and retirement products we oversee, to make sure they continue to promote members’ financial interests.

Our product determination is what we produce, to show the results of our assessment and must be provided for each superannuation product offered. (Note: effective from 1 October 2021 the Super Directions Fund was renamed to the AMP Super Fund.)
