AMP announces FY19 results and provides strategy update

13 February 2020: SuperConcepts CEO Lara Bourguignon:

“2019 was a year of major changes at SuperConcepts as we reset the strategy towards consolidation and simplification.  

“We faced into a number of legacy issues from the 5 years of mergers and acquisitions and announced a 3-year plan for organic growth.  

“Our focus has been consolidating technology stacks to ultimately bring efficiencies to our own business and to clients. This has been long and difficult work but we have made strong progress and 2020 will see the benefits of our technology consolidation.  

"We’re also delivering on simplification of product sets to ensure our clients' needs are best served to help grow their own businesses.  

“While 2019 had challenges we had planned for, we are now in a position to deliver on our long term growth plans as we gain the necessary efficiencies for our ongoing viability and leadership in the SMSF sector."

The moral hazard of a national super fund

Dispelling the disruption myth

SMSF strategies

SMSFs have major role but not for everyone
