DJ Der Guten Laune and ING DIRECT create a ‘super’ good mood

  • DJ Der Guten Laune’s ‘oldies flash mob’ inspires Aussies to think super now
  • Australians paying $20 billion each year in super fees
  • ING DIRECT Living Super offers low-fee and no-fee options

Today, ING DIRECT and 59-year-old German, DJ Der Guten Laune (DJ of the Good Mood) hosted a party to hundreds of amused Sydney locals demonstrating just how good retirement can be, provided people take better care of their super.

The retiree and viral video sensation renowned for his animated performances (5 million+ YouTube views and counting) wowed the crowd with the spectacular #momoneymofun oldies flash mob routine.

With Australians paying around $20 billion each year in super fees, ING DIRECT Living Super offers choice by combating unnecessary fees and charges to your super with no fee and low fee options, as well as access to real-time online share trading.

“Whilst today was all about fun, retirement and superannuation is something we should all take seriously, especially in the case of younger Australians,” said John Arnott, Executive Director of Customer, ING DIRECT.

“It may seem unimportant right now, but on conservative assumptions, a 30-year old could lose more than $250,000 in fees at retirement – about a quarter of their total balance according to the Grattan Institutes report on super fees.

Today’s event aims to get people thinking about their super now and understanding that low fee alternatives are available. ING DIRECT Living Super has no fee and low fee options, ensuring more of your money goes towards retirement rather than towards paying unnecessary fees.”

ING DIRECT Living Super is the first Balanced Fund available to all Australians with no administration or management feesi, and was awarded the SuperRatings Best New Product for 2013 for its innovative product design that benefits members and SuperRatings Fast Mover 2014 award. Members can also see their super balance on their mobile, right next to their ING DIRECT bank accounts.
