NGS Super has appointed Darryn Studdert to the expanded role of chief advice and education officer to lead the newly created advice and education team.

According to the fund, the expanded team will also include the newly created role of education manager.

In his new capacity, Studdert will oversee NGS Super’s financial planning and education services including its delivery across multiple channels.

He steps into the expanded role with almost 20 years of experience in financial planning and has served as chief advice officer at NGS Super since 2016.

NGS Super chief executive Natalie Previtera said that centralising the advice and education functions is set to strengthen the personalised services it offers and its ability to add value to members through the delivery of information and education.

“Darryn brings the perfect mix of financial planning expertise, understanding of our members and leadership skills to the role,” Previtera said.

“As a fund we’re passionate about helping our members improve their financial knowledge so they’re confident in their financial decisions. Advice and education both have a role to play in this.

“Elevating the role of education by giving it a stronger focus and dedicated resources will help us deliver support in a way that is most meaningful to our members and employers.”

Studdert added: “I’m excited to be taking on this expanded role and drawing on my deep expertise and understanding of our members to build out our education programs.

“It is a great opportunity for the fund to make a difference to our members’ financial future and their plans for tomorrow.”

In November, NGS Super launched a new investment solution for retirees, representing an important step in fulfilling its retirement income strategy objectives.
