Infocus to provide advice to First Super members
Monday, 13 April 2015 12:20pm

Industry Fund Services (IFS) and dealer group Infocus Wealth Management will provide full financial advice services to First Super members.

Under the arrangement, Infocus' financial advisers based in Adelaide will travel to locations around South Australia to meet with First Super members at their homes or workplaces.

The $2.2 billion fund mostly caters for the forestry and timber products sector, so many of its members live in regional areas.

"We wanted to help our members, no matter where they live, have access to the best possible advice about their finances in retirement," First Super chief executive Bill Watson said.

He added that the service is initially being rolled out to members in South Australia, with plans to expand it to other states.

"Everyone deserves a secure financial future, but getting access to the right financial advice can be challenging for many people who may not have the time or resources to find - and travel to - a good financial planner," Watson finished.

Infocus Wealth Management is a dealer group with around 200 planners and 50,000 retail clients as of July 2014.

In March 2014, Infocus bought the 25% stake from NAB's MLC and is now owned by its management and advisers.
