Frontier Advisors wins industry fund contract

Frontier Advisors will continue to provide asset consulting services to a $9 billion superannuation fund for a further three years.

NGS Super announced it reappointed Frontier Advisors, its asset consultant since 2015.

Newly appointed NGS Super chief executive Laura Wright said the reappointment comes at a tine when the fund's relative investment performance has improved over the last three years.

The last 12 months of top quartile performance demonstrate that the contributions by Frontier and the working relationship with the internal investment team and investment committee are functioning well, she said.

"Although there are many drivers of these results, the contributions from Frontier over this time has been an important factor," Wright said.

Wright had served as interim chief executive since February 2018 when long-serving chief Anthony Rodwell-Ball retired. She was officially appointed NGS's chief executive last month.

Frontier chief executive Andrew Polson said the asset consultant is proud of the work it has completed with NGS Super and very pleased to be able to continue the partnership.

"As an incumbent you always hope to be reappointed by clients when they test the market, but it is great to receive the reassurance that the advice, service and technology we are offering has been judged as the best available," Polson said.

Sydney-based NGS has about 100,000 members from the non-government education, mutual finance and community sectors.
