The Maritime Super has rocketed into the Top Ten list of "the best performers" based on rankings published by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority.

The rankings, published in the Sydney Morning Herald, placed the Maritime Super in eighth place.

A key point:

The chief executive of the Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees, Fiona Reynolds, said the gap between the retail funds and non-profits was ''nothing to be sneezed at''.

''Over a 30 to 40-year working life of superannuation contributions, an outperformance of 1 or 2 per cent every year can make a very big difference to an individual's retirement outcome,'' said Ms Reynolds, who represents the not-for-profit sector.

The Maritime Super certainly isn't anything to sneeze at, racking up a 6.9 percent annualised return over nine years.
