Sunsuper has outperformed its rivals and cemented its position as one of the super industry’s best performers by winning Chant West’s Super Fund of the Year 2017.
The Award, which is one of the super industry’s most coveted, is awarded annually by superannuation research and consultancy firm Chant West, to the fund for its outstanding performance in investments and member services and overall strength as a fund.
Sunsuper was also recognised with the Corporate Solutions Fund of the Year award and Best Fund: Member Services award for its exceptional service to all members.
The awards are another major win for the Queensland-based fund that since July 2016 has won over $3.5 billion of new business, given in principle support for a merger with Kinetic Super and delivered significant technology upgrades to improve customer interactions – including a new website.
Sunsuper’s Chief Executive Officer, Scott Hartley, said it was an honour for Sunsuper to accept the three awards and highlighted the Fund’s enormous commitment to its members.
“Winning Chant West Fund of the Year Award is testimony to the fact that when it comes to managing your retirement dollars, Sunsuper represents the best proposition in Australia,” said Mr Hartley.
“At Sunsuper, every interaction with our members is driven by our desire to help them achieve financial freedom, and these awards are evidence of that. We are delighted to be recognised for our ongoing commitment to our members, as well as for our efforts with our employer clients.”
“For 30 years, we have been in the business of helping members achieve their retirement dreams, providing quality products and exceptional customer service, and these awards cement our position amongst Australia’s top funds.”
“But, we won’t be resting on our laurels. We’ll continue to work hard to provide top quality products and services for our members and implement new technologies, such as an app later in the year to meet the rapidly changing service expectations of our members.”
Sunsuper will also maintain its focus on pursuing new and innovative investment opportunities, build on its people capabilities and optimise operational efficiencies in order to keep costs down and fees low.
Sunsuper is one of Australia’s largest and fastest growing super funds with more than one million members and $40 billion in funds under management.
Sunsuper was a finalist in the following categories: Super Fund of the Year, Best Fund Member Services, Corporate Solutions Fund of the Year, Pension Fund of the Year, Best Fund: Investments, Best Fund: Innovation, Best Fund: Integrity and Best Fund: Advice Services.
