We’re proud to be independently recognised for providing quality investment services to you and your employees.

Investment leader of the year

The leader of First State Super’s investment team, Richard Brandweiner, was recently named Chief Investment Officer of the Year by publisher Conexus Financial.

Investment Magazine acknowledged Richard’s outstanding leadership at First State Super, and within the broader financial services industry.

‘Brandweiner’s passion is deep and pervasive and he naturally reflects the over-riding philosophy of everyone who works at First State Super – that there is a higher purpose in what they do; that managing money for other people is a privilege and a responsibility.’

Top quality investment options

Our MySuper Life Cycle strategy was also awarded a 5 star rating for ‘outstanding quality’ from independent super and actuarial consultancy The Heron Partnership1.

MySuper is a simple, low-cost super option for people who don’t make an active choice about how they want their super invested. If your employees have not made an active investment decision for their super, they will likely be invested in the MySuper option provided by us, or their chosen fund.

You can have confidence that the default investment option we provide is of a high quality. In addition to our 5 star rating from The Heron Partnership, our MySuper offering was also named Best MySuper Investment Option at the 2014 SuperReview Super Fund of the Year awards.
