The $125 billion fund has tapped a senior Morningstar executive for the newly created role.

Annika Bradley has joined UniSuper as senior manager, investment specialist for policy and advice.

Effective 1 May 2024, she will be responsible for leading UniSuper’s investment governance and compliance processes and providing critical support for internal and external financial advisers on investment issues.

Bradley makes the move from Morningstar, where she led manager research focusing on Australian and New Zealand fund managers for over two and a half years.

She has almost two decades of experience in the financial sector, with a strong background in investment management, portfolio construction and research.

She has previously served as head of SMSF investment solutions at start-up Eviser for eight years and portfolio manager at QSuper for two years.

She has also been a director on the board of the CIMA Society of Australia, the professional community for investment management analysts, for over seven years.

UniSuper’s chief investment officer, John Pearce, said he was “delighted” to welcome Bradley to the team.

“She brings a breadth of experience to a role that will be truly multi-faceted adding to our strong, in-house capability as we continue to expand and grow,” he said.

Earlier this year, the super fund saw the departure of its head of fixed interest and macro research, Robert Hogg, who had been with UniSuper since 2016 and previously served as head of global equity strategies and quant methods.

He has since joined SG Hiscock as its group chief investment officer and head of individual portfolios.

The team is being led by David Colosimo, currently an investment manager, fixed income and macro research, as UniSuper considers options to fill the position.
