Vision Super and Active Super 2 mins read

Industry super funds Vision Super and Active Super have signed a successor fund transfer deed and are set to merge on 1 March 2025. With Vision Super set to be the successor fund, the funds are moving closer to creating a new, larger entity with around $29 billion in funds under management and 170,000 member accounts.

Vision Super Chair Graham Sherry said: “This is an exciting milestone in our merger process. The signing of the successor fund transfer deed brings us a very significant step closer to realising the benefits of this merger for our members.

Active Super Chair Kyle Loades said “The combined strength of a single fund across NSW and Victoria, with a focus on delivering sustainable long-term returns and strong retirement outcomes for members, will serve our members in local government and beyond for decades to come.”

“With over 100 years’ combined experience serving our members in local government across New South Wales and Victoria, the two most populous states in Australia, the merged fund is set to become the preeminent traditional local government fund in Australia. This merger represents a significant step forward in our mission to provide exceptional service and strong returns to our members across the country,” the Chairs said.

Vision Super’s Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Rowe, will be Chief Executive Officer of the merged fund. Stephen is excited to see this substantial milestone achieved and noted the expected benefits for members were strong.

We expect to see benefits for members over time including cost savings and greater economies of scale as time goes on as the merged fund will strive to deliver improved products and services”, Stephen said.

Donna Heffernan, Active Super’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, will work alongside Stephen during the transition period. The fund will continue to maintain its presence in Sydney and across regional NSW in Newcastle, Wollongong, Ballina, Wagga Wagga and Orange, as well as Melbourne and regional Victoria.

The merged fund will be internally administered, using Vision Super’s existing Acurity Registry platform, which the fund has used since 2016. Transition is well underway in advance of the SFT date of 1 March 2025.

“Internal administration allows us to provide efficient, award-winning member service[1] at a competitive cost,” Stephen said.
