Nine's metro mastheads have launched a new editorial series called 'Super Fit' to help Australians secure their financial future by focusing on superannuation amidst rising cost-of-living pressures and housing prices. The six-part series, created by the Money experts at The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Brisbane Times, and WAtoday, provides a comprehensive guide to building a strong superannuation balance. The series, in partnership with Colonial First State, covers topics such as planning for a comfortable retirement, selecting the right funds, optimal allocation at different ages, making additional contributions, and managing spending during retirement. The 'Super Fit' stories are featured in the Money section of the Wednesday editions of the Herald and The Age until June 26.
