Equity Trustees has announced that Grant Currie will join the business as head of superannuation trustee services.
The company said Mr Currie, who will be based in Melbourne, would bring a wealth of risk and compliance expertise to the company.
“The development of the business has been with a clear focus on ensuring we deliver even better value and service to our clients,” said Equity Trustees general manager of superannuation portfolio services Mark Blair.
“We have strengthened our core business as a trustee, and as a result we are better enabled to service our partners - currently 13 superannuation funds with assets of around $3 billion.”
Mr Currie has previously held risk and compliance roles with the Rio Tinto Superannuation Fund, the HESTA Super Fund, Guild Insurance and Emergency Services Super and AXA.
“Superannuation is a critical component of the wealth held by all Australians and we are excited about the prospect of the year ahead when we can extend our fully independent trusteeship for the benefit of more Australians,” Mr Blair said.
