How We Serve Women

Verve is the only superannuation fund in Australia dedicating 100% of our resources, services, focus and attention to serving women.

Services for women, by women

From online financial guidance and coaching, to fee breaks for members on carers leave, our services are tailored for women and delivered by women.

Ethical investments, ethical people

Our team are committed to building the financial power of women and a better world. At Verve there is no need to compromise your values for returns. Because we know that over time, ethical investments outperform the market.

Agitators for change

With the power of our community, we agitate for change to support financial equality and to build wealth for all women.

Fair Fees & the Baby Bump

To support members entering the workforce and receiving super for the first time, or members who have withdrawn the bulk of their super due to hardship, Verve ensures that the annual Membership Fee is not charged when a member’s balance is lower than $1000.

The BabyBump program is a fee rebate for Verve Super members of any gender who have recently become new parents, whether by birth or adoption. Email us at hello@vervesuper.com.au and we will confirm your eligibility and rebate our membership fee back into your super account for the period that you’re on parental leave (up to 12 months).

Meet our ethical Fund Managers

We strive to grow the financial wealth of our members without compromising their values. Verve partners with Future Super Fund Management, one of the most trusted ethical superannuation fund managers in Australia.
