Superannuation administration company Link Group will unite a number of its business units into one Melbourne office from 2016.
The custom-designed 20,000 square metres of space will be over 10 floors in tower 4 of Collins Square and will bring together Melbourne-based staff from various business units including Link Market Services, AAS, Superpartners, Empirics and Syncsoft.
Due for completion in mid-2016, Link Group has also secured naming rights to the building.
Link Group managing director John McMurtrie said: “We’re excited to finally announce the details of our new office to accommodate our growing presence in Melbourne. Our new Collins Street base reinforces our long-term commitment to investing in people as well as technology, and we’re aiming to build on the success of our current superannuation service and technology hub at Rhodes in Sydney.”
Originating in Australia in 2002 as Link Market Services, Link Group has grown over the past decade to become a leading superannuation administration, data analytics and registry company, offering a range of information, technology and service solutions to its global network of superannuation and corporate clients.
Having invested more than $300 million in technology and systems over the last seven years, and more than doubled its workforce, the decision to establish a new Melbourne base is part of Link Group’s global growth strategy.
The organisation is structured across four core business divisions: pensions and superannuation (which includes AAS, Superpartners, Link Super and Money Solutions), information and data services (which includes Empirics, Syncsoft and CMR Direct), corporate markets (which includes Link Market Services and Orient Capital) and property services.
