Following an extensive market review Statewide Super retained its custodian.
The $7 billion industry superannuation fund has renewed its long-running partnership with NAB Asset Servicing (NAS), which provides custody, master custody, investment administration, and middle office services.
Statewide Super chief executive Richard Nunn said: “After undertaking a service provider review we found their [NAS’] offering was still the best fit for our needs.”
“NAB’s in-region support and face-to-face service model is extremely important for our business. Their digital performance platform StatPro, which provides detailed attribution and risk scenario analysis, will be an important tool for our Investment team,” Nunn said.
