Member AGM 2018

November 8th, 2018

Members and employers heard about First Super’s strong 2017/18 performance at its AGM (annual general meeting) in Sydney on 31 October.

This year’s event location, Parramatta, was chosen as it’s central to one of the heartlands of Fund members and industries in New South Wales.

First Super CEO Bill Watson gave the main presentation of the evening, providing the background to the Fund’s healthy investment returns, details of what’s planned within the Fund for the next 12 months, and other developments. Board members Allan Stewart and Scott McDine were also on hand to answer questions from attendees.

The event also featured a ‘Transitioning to Retirement’ session, which was run by Andrew Jewell, Manager, Financial Advice and Education. The presentation, informed by common questions raised by over-55s, included building your super while working and gaining tax benefits by using super.

Commenting on the event, Bill Watson said: “Part of our promise of ‘putting members first’ includes giving members – wherever they are around Australia – a chance to connect with their Fund. And as a small fund, we pride ourselves on our personal touch. So I was really pleased to meet some of our NSW members on their own patch, and answer their queries directly.”
