Leigh Gavin has been appointed head of investments at LUCRF Super. His responsibilities will include managing the fund’s investment strategy, and he will oversee approximately $5 billion in funds under management.
Gavin has spent the past 14 years at Frontier Advisors. He has held a number of roles there, including head of Australian equities, head of property and most recently, senior consultant to Frontier Advisors’ largest clients.
Gavin is the second high-profile person to move across from Frontier to a super fund in recent months, marking a wider trend in the industry of super funds acquiring top talent.
“We are thrilled that Leigh Gavin is going to lead the investment team at LUCRF Super,” said chief operating officer Antony Thow. “Leigh will play a crucial role in helping the fund achieve its investment objectives and ensuring our members can maximise their retirement savings.”
Gavin said he was excited to be joining LUCRF Super and a team that is very aligned to its members.
“Given the fund’s long and highly respected reputation it truly is a privilege and I can’t wait to get started,” he said.
Gavin will commence the role in mid-May.
