Australian super fund NGS Super has appointed non-aligned advisory firm Guideway Financial Services as its financial advice partner.
Under the deal, Guideway Financial Services will provide NGS Financial Planning with a bespoke advice solution using responsive financial planning solutions.
NGS in its press statement said the fund underwent a tender process to find a provider that would support its future growth strategy, which included catering for an increase in the number of members seeking advice via a number of different channels.
“A key objective in NGS’s growth strategy is to provide members with an omni-channel advice solution which is responsive and agile,” the statement added.
NGS Super executive manager customer Dascia Bennett said the appointment of Guideway Financial Services has been in the fund’s future roadmap for growth and is part of a wider strategic plan to reach new members and drive customer engagement.
“Our goal is always to help members secure their financial futures. This is achieved by understanding their goals and ensuring that they make appropriate financial decisions to secure their future from a whole of wealth perspective. A key part of this is making sure members have access to quality and professional financial advice. The benefits will be significant because this will mean the availability of a more agile, complete and cost-effective financial planning service to members,” Bennett added.
NGS Financial Planning hopes to wrap up the Guideway Financial Services solution deployment in early 2017.
