UniSuper has a larger staff than many other Australian superannuation funds as UniSuper conducts all of its member services, financial advice, Investments and fund administration activities internally (including its own internal call centre). Whereas, many Australian super funds outsource these functions.

UniSuper's in-house investment team, comprised of 45+ staff, is responsible for both managing assets and for appointing external managers (noting that UniSuper does not use an asset consultant). UniSuper's financial advice team operates with no commissions and is solely focused on delivering the best advice (in an unconflicted manner) to UniSuper's members.

Since 2011 UniSuper has made significant progress in internalising the management of assets, thus further shortening the chain of investment intermediation (as we also do not use an asset consultant). This brings us closer to the companies and assets in which we are investing our members' funds. We now manage 60% of our assets internally and central to this is our role as an actively engaged owner, a responsibility we take seriously.
