Nick Sherry, chair of the Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards selection committee, says the 2015 Super Fund of the Year Awards Evening coincides with a critical period of change and development for the superannuation industry.

“We have started to enter a new era for superannuation funds, with MySuper and various arrangements around that, as well as the Future of Financial Advice (FoFA),” he says.

“Therefore it’s useful to see how funds are responding in that context, and the awards in May next year are important in that new era.”

Participation in the awards is open to all industry, retail and corporate super funds –  entry is via nomination.
