Sunsuper is building on its move into the financial advice market with the appointment of two new Business Development Managers and the introduction of an online portal for financial advisers, Adviser Online.
Alessandra Bertora and William Burke join Sunsuper as Business Development Managers responsible for growing Sunsuper’s membership and funds under management via external financial advisers.
Sunsuper’s Retail Distribution and Advice National Manager, Anne Fuchs, said these appointments now take the number of Business Development Managers executing the Fund’s retail distribution strategy to four.
“At Sunsuper we’re doing our bit to make it easier for Australians to access high quality, low cost super and pension products like Sunsuper’s by continuing to invest in dedicated staff and services for financial advisers wanting to partner with us,” said Ms Fuchs.
Ms Bertora joins Sunsuper with more than ten years’ experience in the financial advice industry, most recently in specialist roles at Westpac/St George. Mr Burke has more than ten years’ experience as a financial adviser, including roles at Citibank and Entrust Solutions, and also served as the Chair of the Association of Financial Adviser’s GenXt QLD for three years.
Sunsuper has also launched a new Adviser Online portal which enables advisers to login via the Sunsuper website and see their clients’ account information in real time, at any time, and on a variety of devices, including tablets and smartphones.
“The positive feedback we’ve received so far from financial advisers about Sunsuper’s new Adviser Online has been very exciting and shows that Sunsuper truly believes in partnering with advisers and making their jobs easier,” Ms Fuchs said.
Sunsuper is one of Australia’s largest super and retirement businesses with one million members and $35 billion in funds under management.
