Prime Super and Combined Super to merge

Published on 06/07/2018

Prime Super and Combined Super are pleased to announce that they have signed an agreement to merge.

Effective 1 January 2019, the merged fund will manage assets of approximately $5 billion for in excess of 120,000 members.

The Chairman of Combined Super, Mr George Kogios, said the merger would deliver significant benefits of scale to the members and employers of Combined Super whilst continuing the level of service and engagement that the Fund’s members currently enjoy. 

“The synergies between Prime Super and Combined Super are strong and we see the ability to continue that small fund level of personal engagement as a strong positive for our members.  The additional scale of Prime Super will allow us to demonstrate a real reduction in the cost of superannuation for our members” he said.

The Chairman of Prime Super, Mr Alan Bowman, said that important considerations for the merger were complementary fund cultures, and a shared vision for the future of superannuation. “The merger would provide Prime Super with increased scale, whilst remaining a fund that is focused on delivering a quality product to members and the right level of services to contributing employers across a broad range of industries.”
