Brisbane-based superannuation fund LGIAsuper has announced Troy Rieck to head up its $13 billion investment portfolio as its new chief investment officer.
Mr Rieck has experience in superannuation and financial services with previous roles at Queensland’s QIC and Suncorp Investments, most recently serving in the role of CIO of Equipsuper in Victoria.
LGIAsuper chief executive Kate Farrar said Mr Rieck brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position.
“Mr Rieck is a highly skilled and innovative CIO, with considerable experience running investments for a large super fund,” Ms Farrar said.
“In his previous role at Equipsuper his key achievements included lowering risk, producing significant cost savings and increasing returns for members.”
Further, Ms Farrar said that while his technical expertise was exceptional, Mr Rieck’s personal ties to Queensland and LGIAsuper would ensure that he understood the fund’s members.
“Regional Queensland is our heartland. It’s also where Troy grew up, so he understands what our members need. He even loves to wear his steel cap boots to remind himself of who we work for,” she said.
