Rainmaker Group recently hired a former senior product manager at Colonial First State as its new head of superannuation research.
Joining Rainmaker last month, Jason Ross will help the business build its superannuation research and expand it into new channels.
Ross has more than 18 years' experience in research, analytics and product management. Most recently he was at Colonial First State and prior to that has held product manager roles at E*TRADE, AMP Capital and ING.
At CFS, Ross looked after superannuation and managed funds sitting on the FirstWrap platform.
Rainmaker executive director, research and compliance Alex Dunnin said recent reports from the Royal Commission and Productivity Commission, combined with expanded product sets following new market entrants and new types of products being launched, "create a need for superannuation researchers to keep developing their methods and approaches."
"Jason's mission is to drive Rainmaker into these areas to support not only our research clients but consumers who use this information to map out their retirement savings strategies and find their ideal super fund."
