Major Queensland funds complete merger

Sunsuper has officially finalised its merger with AustSafe Super, bringing its funds under management to $64 billion and its member base to 1.4 million.

The merger would mean one in five workers in Queensland would be Sunsuper’s of members, and should produce total savings to members of $10 million per year.

Sunsuper credited the funds’ shared values as the driver of the merger, especially where rural and regional members were concerned.

“Like AustSafe Super, Sunsuper has a long heritage of supporting rural and regional areas and we remain committed to the strong foundations AustSafe Super has built in these communities over the last 30 years,” Sunsuper chair, Andrew Fraser, said.

The merger saw an advisory board of directors from both funds established to specifically focus on members in rural and regional communities.
