Former New South Wales premier Nick Greiner and former Labor parliamentary secretary Bernie Ripoll have joined the SMSF Association’s Public Policy Committee.
Appointing two high-profile policy figures to the SMSF Association’s Public Policy Committee is emphasising the peak body’s commitment to formulating solid retirement, superannuation, and financial services strategies, according to managing director / chief executive, Andrea Slattery.
Ripoll and Greiner, who was premier and treasurer of New South Wales (NSW) from 1988-1992, had become the first outsiders to join the ranks of the Public Policy Committee.
“We are excited about getting two former politicians of the calibre and reputation of Nick and Bernie, and look forward to getting their input into our vigorous policy debates,” Slattery said.
“This is the first time the association has looked outside its own membership ranks by asking two prominent Australians boasting strong political and financial credentials to join.
“These appointments are further testimony to the importance we place on policy.”
