Have your say

AUSTRALIA'S biggest superannuation fund, AustralianSuper, has leapt into the world of caravanning and camping to form a new partnership with the industry's peak body.

And Caravan Industry Association of Australia chief executive Stuart Lamont has welcomed the move.

"This partnership recognises our wider objectives of championing a sustainable caravanning and camping industry into the future, both for consumers who use the product and the 53,000 industry employees who rely on continued industry strength," he said.

"Partnering with an industry super fund with 2.2 million members aligns with our philosophy of growing and improving the industry, while providing an incredible channel for continuing to promote the benefits of a caravanning and camping experience."

The partnership will see a series of economic lectures around the country, as well as informational tools surrounding long-term financial planning utilising the Caravan Industry Association of Australia’s distribution reach.

The association has also committed to changing its default super and its superannuation clearing house to AustralianSuper, last year's top performing fund.

Nick Bladen, national manager – direct sales for AustralianSuper, thought the partnership was a 'great opportunity' for his company to be part of the quintessential Australian experience of a caravanning and camping, a lifestyle which many of its members enjoyed.

"By supporting the Caravan Industry Association of Australia, we are both investing in promoting a lifestyle-based comfortable future for all Australians, and encouraging the long term financial well-being of persons associated with the caravanning and camping industry," he said

AustralianSuper manages more than $120 billion of members' assets to help them achieve their best possible retirement outcome.

In the last two years 7.1 million Australians stayed in a caravan holiday park, camping ground or national park, with Australians making an annual economic benefit to the Australian economy annually of over $19 billion.

In a recent Real Richness Study, campers described themselves as more healthy, active and fit for their age than non-campers with 96 percent also believing that camping can make people happier.
