Super funds were warned by Tom Garcia, chief executive of AIST, that they “must build their brand or die”, when speaking at the CMSF conference on the Gold Coast back in March.
And yet, only a few industry funds have responded in 2014. In researching the following quiz, we found all retail funds had clear, if a touch simple, messaging and slogans, while many industry funds had none at all.
Working with all the slogans that are out there, we thought it would be interesting to see how many of you can reconcile the following brand slogans and advertising catch lines from the leading superannuation funds. The answers appear at the bottom of the page. No peeking!
