Thursday, 3 March 2016

Queensland’s largest super fund has been named Pension Fund of the Year for the second year in a row as well as Large Fund of the Year at the Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards in Melbourne tonight.

QSuper CEO Mr Michael Pennisi said it was a fantastic achievement.

“Winning both of these awards is recognition of the great work QSuper is doing to support our members to and through retirement,” Mr Pennisi said.

“Our goal is to improve the financial wellbeing of each member throughout their life by offering help, guidance and advice every step of the way.

“We have made some significant improvements to our offering for members, including lowering fees, giving more flexibility, more draw down options, increased access to funds and a streamlined administrative process.

“The launch of Money Map and our Online Advice tool, both super industry firsts, helps our members to create a complete financial picture to manage their money better.”

Mr Pennisi said that quality education and advice was the key to retirement planning.

“We have an award-winning contact centre which engages with members in an entirely new way to ensure a conversation delivers value, no matter how simple or complex the question,” he said.

“We offer member seminars, information, online calculators and advice that are all designed to help build confidence to ensure a rewarding retirement later in life.

“This award is a testament to the hard work and commitment from everyone at QSuper to improve retirement outcomes and the financial wellbeing of all our members.”
