Super returns far from normal

Superannuation funds have delivered the highest returns in a decade due to booming equity and property markets. The median gain of 15.65 per cent by super funds balanced portfolios is a further increase on last year's 14.2 per cent return and the fourth year of double digit returns. The four year bull run has increased the 10 year return to 9.05 per cent with some industry insiders cautioning a return to single digit returns moving forward.
