AustSafe Super's asset consultant wins at SelectingSuper Awards

AustSafe Super congratulates the Fund’s investment consultant, JANA Investment Advisors, for having been awarded Asset Consultant of the Year at Rainmaker’s annual SelectingSuper Awards.

The award, assessed by Australia’s leading financial services information company Rainmaker, recognises JANA’s consulting and advisory services and its ability to deliver consistently strong investment performance for its super fund clients.

AustSafe Super engages the expertise of JANA to assist in reviewing the investment objectives, strategy and asset allocations of the Fund. This includes providing analysis on the Fund’s investment performance and working with the Investment Committee on manager selection and monitoring to deliver strong long-term returns for its members. 

According to AustSafe Super’s chief executive, Craig Stevens, the Fund has recorded strong performance from each of its nine investment options over the last financial year.

“Most notably, our MySuper (Balanced) investment option returned 11.12% p.a. for the year to 30 June 2017, well above the medium balanced return of 9.74% p.a.[1]

“Our strong performance is testament to our collaborative partnership with JANA. We work together to find new strategies that add meaningful returns to our Fund. As our members are hardworking rural and regional Australians, we make sure we work just as hard for them so they can enjoy a comfortable retirement,” he said.

AustSafe Super is the industry super Fund for rural and regional Australia and looks after more than 100,000 members with $2.4 billion funds under management.
