A fossil-free super fund has promoted its chief operations officer to the position of co-founder.
Kirstin Hunter will be responsible for Future Super’s business growth through identifying market opportunities and developing strategic business plans to build Future Super’s position within the ethical investing world.
Ms Hunter joined Future Super in 2017 as chief operations officer and was appointed to the Future Super board as managing director in 2018. Ms Hunter has been responsible for fast growth in new members and strong returns across its balanced funds.
“Kirstin has been integral in shaping Future Super to be Australia’s strongest performing fund on the market in the past 12 months,” said Simon Sheikh, CEO and co-founder of Future Super. “Her passion for ethics and equality [is] infectious and will be key in propelling the Future Super story further so that we can build a prosperous future, free from climate change and inequality.”
Ms Hunter has been responsible for several key initiatives, including the “BabyBump” which gave members a refund of their weekly member fee during parental leave and the “Not Business As Usual” campaign that saw 15,000 workers participate in the first global climate strike.
