Kinetic Super, Sunsuper and LGIA Super were the big winners at last week’s Conexus Financial superannuation industry awards. VicSuper also picked up a couple of gongs, along with industry heavyweights AustralianSuper and UniSuper.
Mark Delaney, the CIO of Aussie Super, was announced as ‘CIO of the Year’ and the fund was awarded the rather uflattering title of ‘default fund of the year’.

For the first time, two funds, which are in process of merging – Kinetic and Sunsuper – were given the main ‘fund of the year’ award.
Jenny McAllister, an ALP senator, told the 300-odd audience in Sydney that superannuation was more than “just a financial product”. She said: “Super is about giving people some dignity in their retirement.”
