The Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees (AIST) has announced the appointment of Catherine Bolger, who has been a director of AIST since 2016, as its new president.

In addition to her role as director of AIST, Bolger has served as a director on a range of industry funds and related boards for the last 14 years and is currently a trustee of SAS Trustee Corporation and director of Professionals Australia.

AIST chief executive officer, Eva Scheerlink said Bolger brings a deep understanding of the role and benefits of a trustee representative governance model, as well as a passion for advocating for improved retirement outcomes.

Bolger has also been involved in shaping the Insurance in Superannuation Voluntary Code and would replace David Smith, who served as AIST’s president for the two-year term.

Scheerlink thanked Smith for his contribution and said he would continue on as an AIST director.

"David provided invaluable strategic advice to AIST during his time as president and he has overseen many significant developments including the roll out of AIST's new Governance Code, the merger of AIST and Industry Funds Forum and the development of the industry-wide insurance code," she said.
