Entries are now open for the Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards 2018.

The focus of the Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards is to honour funds that offer products and services that will ultimately lead to better retirement outcomes for members.

Conexus Financial is the publisher of Professional Planner, Investment Magazine, and Top1000Funds.com

The Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards are the only truly independent awards within the sector. There is no entry fee and the winners are decided by a volunteer judging committee that has broad representation from all areas of the industry.

Conexus Financial head of institutional content, Amanda White, and editor-at-large, Simon Hoyle, co-chair the committee.

In recognition of the importance of a robust governance framework, the committee also has a focus on this aspect of a fund’s operation. For the second consecutive year, Australian Prudential Regulation Authority deputy chair Helen Rowell will advise the judging committee in a non-voting role.

The other committee members are:

  • CalSTRS chief investment officer Chris Ailman
  • FEAL chief executive Joanna Davison
  • Choice chief executive Alan Kirkland
  • Financial Services Council chief executive Sally Loane
  • New Zealand Super chief executive Adrian Orr
  • Bernie Ripoll, former member of Parliament for Oxley
  • Rice Warner chief executive Michael Rice

Award nominees are assessed across a combination of quantitative and qualitative factors.

Entries are open in 12 categories:

  • Large Fund of the Year
  • Medium Fund of the Year
  • Small Fund of the Year
  • Default Fund of the Year
  • Pension Fund of the Year
  • Member Services Fund of the Year
  • Fund of the Year
  • Chief investment Officer of the Year
  • Best Technology Offering
  • Best Advice Offering
