Cbus is one of Australia's largest public offer industry superannuation funds. Established in 1984 for the construction, building and allied industries, Cbus has grown rapidly in its 28 years and now provides membership to 690,000 Australians working in the construction, building and allied industry.

The company has over 80,000 participating employers managing members’ assets worth more than $20 billion. A team of national staff and coordinators is available in all states to provide information on the range of super options offered.

Remaining true to its roots, Cbus invests back into the construction and building industries to boost the national economy and create jobs. The company is actively involved in the governance and reporting practices of the Australian companies in which it invests.

Extra benefits associated with Cbus membership include financial planning advice, reduced private health insurance rates and low-cost banking. Armed with statistics that show 94 percent of Cbus members are male, the superannuation fund also provides support to organisations aiming to prevent recognised health issues that affect the male population in Australia, including prostate cancer and suicide.
