Our Teams

People are critical to the success of our business. We encourage workplace diversity and ensure that each and every one of our employees brings something unique and fabulous to the team environment.

Member Services
Our super member services team is made up of qualified financial planners, account managers and para-planning staff.

Account Managers (Member Services Consultants) are our superannuation guru's that travel around the state to provide our members with the most up to date information on what is happening in the industry. Depending on the needs of the members they may present to a large group or provide tailored one-on-one general advice. You can speak to your Account Manager over the phone or arrange for an appointment to meet in person.

Financial Planners are all experts in their field and have spent many years providing ethical and tailored advice. Our planners are paid a salary, not a commission so members know that they are only working in their best interests.

This team is supported by our paraplanning and administration staff who work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure our members have a positive experience and reach their retirement goals.
