Chant West and Conexus Financial will come together from 2020 to host a joint annual super fund awards, replacing their individual awards. The partnership recognises calls from the super industry in recent years for less awards. The co-branded Chant West & Conexus Financial awards will comprise the well-respected data, technology and methodology of Chant West at an event hosted and promoted by Conexus Financial.
Superannuation funds have been too focused on the accumulation stage, meaning there are far too many Australians dying with full balances and not living the “retirement standard they could otherwise afford”.
Mark Delaney, the CIO of AustralianSuper, which won three awards at the Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards on Thursday night, said the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry was a “long overdue calling to account” for the $2.8 trillion superannuation sector.
The seventh annual Conexus Financial Superannuation Awards has received a record number of entries in innovation and technology categories in a year marked by controversy and change across the entire financial services sector.
