Industry fund VicSuper has added an online coaching feature to its financial advice suite as part of a member engagement campaign.
The software, known as Beeline, provides VicSuper members with financial advice about additional contributions and investment allocation in their super.
Beeline also provides general advice helping members with retirement adequacy and budgeting goals, said the super fund.
