Nicola Scott will be responsible for leading the financial division of RSS.

Link Group’s Retirement and Superannuation Solutions (RSS) division has appointed Nicola Scott as its chief financial officer.

Ms Scott will be responsible for managing key financial investments targeted at projects that produce the best efficiency dividends or reinvest in initiatives that deliver exceptional member outcomes. 

In the role, the emphasis will be on ensuring the efficient deployment of capital together with a strong management culture as Link Group’s growth agenda gains momentum. 


Ms Scott commented that she was drawn to the role as change is a strong part of the organisation’s agenda. 

“I have always enjoyed solving problems and working with numbers. So it’s no surprise that I am passionate about making super, quality financial advice and retirement solutions affordable and accessible to as many individuals and families as possible.”

“Link Group plays a key role in delivering on this objective through its leading technology solutions and digital platforms, changing the way people prepare for and live in retirement,” she concluded.  

Ms Scott brings extensive experience across finance, consulting and audit, having spent more than 25 years operating in the United Kingdom, Asia Pacific and Australia.

She joins RSS from Pendal Group, where she rebuilt the finance function to support business transformation and achieve its strategic growth objectives. 

Ms Scott previously held several senior finance management positions within ANZ Bank’s institutional division, as well as involvement in large infrastructure projects, integration of acquired businesses and leading the regional implementation of post-GFC regulatory reform across ANZ’s Asia Pacific.

Dee McGrath, CEO of Retirement and Superannuation Solutions Link Group, added that Ms Scott’s appointment will “play a significant role in managing increased regulation and looks to build on our leadership position as we expand into new global markets, creating opportunities to produce stronger returns for shareholders.”

“Nicola is a great fit within our leadership team and shares our beliefs of client-first, teamwork and agility.” 

Ms Scott will report to Ms McGrath.
