Governance

As a fund run only to profit members, LGIAsuper is committed to delivering excellent value so you can enjoy more money in retirement. To achieve this, we need good governance, strong operations and clear accountability.

Our governance framework

LGIAsuper has been a complying resident regulated superannuation fund since 1 July 1995 within the meaning of the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (the SIS Act). The LGIAsuper Trustee (ABN 94 085 088 484) acts as trustee of the fund under the Local Government Act (Qld). LGIAsuper Trustee holds a Responsible Superannuation Entity (RSE) Licence (RSE Licence number L0000178).

From 1 July 2011, LGIAsuper (known then as LGsuper) and City Super merged to become one fund for all of local government in Queensland. Today, the combined fund operates under the LGIAsuper name.

LGIAsuper is governed by a Trust Deed, which outlines our governing rules (and consolidates any amending or supplemental Trust Deed).

Who runs LGIAsuper?

How your money is managed

LGIAsuper sells its investment in Bravura Solutions

In 2017, LGIAsuper invested in Bravura Solutions, the software provider of LGIAsuper’s superannuation administration platform. As a strategic investment, this investment should have been acquired from the General Reserve of the Fund rather than as an investment of the Fund.

In 2018, LGIAsuper sold this investment and a made a profit of $18.2m. These funds were transferred to the General Reserve to align with the strategic nature of the investment and the future benefits of the software for the Fund. The software has been transferred to the external administrator, who will maintain, enhance and provide the service back to the Fund as part of a 10-year contract. The short-term impact of this decision was a reduction in members’ investment earnings in 2018/19 which depended on your account type and investment option. For more information click here.
