A former RBA economist has joined Christian Super as its new chief investment officer.
Mark Rider has taken the role at the fund, succeeding its longstanding CIO Tim Macready.
Mr Macready will be departing Christian Super after 15 years, moving to a full-time position with specialist impact investment firm Brightlight Impact Advisory, where he has been the group’s CIO for the last four years.
Mr Rider’s career in financial services has spanned a reported 30 years. During the last seven years he worked with ANZ wealth and private banking, where he held various roles including head of investment strategy and CIO.
He started with the Reserve Bank, where he spent 10 years in various roles, including economist and head of economic activity and forecasting.
He then joined UBS Investment Bank and UBS Global Asset Management, where he served for 16 years in roles including Australian chief economist, institutional account manager, equity strategist and head of investment strategy.
Christian Super chief executive Ross Piper said Mr Rider’s appointment is a “significant milestone for the fund”.
“Mark is a highly qualified and experienced investment leader, and his appointment will underpin Christian Super’s strong continued focus on maximising outcomes for our members and ensuring their money is invested in line with their values and beliefs,” Mr Piper said.
