Small Fund of the Year

“Small Fund of the Year” goes to… AustSafe Super!

AustSafe Super has won the best Small Fund of the Year award at the annual Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards.

Recognising excellence in the superannuation industry, the Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards are determined on a range of criteria set and applied by an independent expert selection committee.

Small fund refers to funds managing up to $5 billion in assets and our nod for the award was based on our outstanding investment, pension product, member services, fees and insurance offerings.

Conexus Financial is a privately owned, specialist Australian publishing and events company, whose products cover the retail and institutional financial service sectors both domestically and abroad.

The Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards were created to showcase the funds that produce the best outcomes for their members through investment performance and the various member services.

Being in the same bucket as fellow nominees EISS Super, Intrust Super and Kinetic Super is a testament to the outstanding services and support we provide our members and our ongoing commitment to innovation.

“Even though we’re not the biggest fund, I can tell you we’ve got the biggest heart. It’s embedded in our culture and it’s thanks to our terrific people and the fantastic relationships we have with our members, the hard-working rural and regional Australians,” reflected Craig Stevens, AustSafe Super’s Chief Executive Officer.

“Over the past year our members have seen a number of new developments that have added value to their membership. These developments are in part thanks to some of the great working relationships we have with partners like the Link Group and Chandler, to name a few.”

This award tops off a pretty impressive period for AustSafe Super, which has seen us awarded a coveted Financial Review Smart Investor Blue Ribbon award for Best Growth Super Fund and recognised through SuperRatings as one of an elite group of 8 funds to have delivered a compound return of over 100% since the GFC.
