Industry super fund builds in-house advice offering

An industry super fund has announced it is expanding its in-house financial advice offering with a new service model, and will begin recruiting for 30 specialist adviser roles next week.

Cbus has said it launched a new financial advice service model that is “underpinned by a unique performance planning framework” and aligns with its commitment to provide services in the best interests of its members. 

The fund will also launch an in-house “advice over the phone” service later this year.

Cbus chief executive David Atkin said: “I am pleased that Cbus is taking more direct ownership of this important service for our members."

"Maximising our members' retirement outcomes is our mission – this new service will help us to help them achieve this goal.”

Cbus has held a financial planning referral service partnership with the FPA since 2013.
