LGIAsuper kicks off partnership with the North Queensland Cowboys

11 February 2016

Following on from its recent rebrand, LGIAsuper has announced a new partnership with reigning National Rugby League Premiers the North Queensland Cowboys.

It brings the two trusted, reliable, strong-performing teams together through shared values, a commitment to good governance and a unique understanding of the needs of local communities.

LGIAsuper Chair, Bronwyn Morris, acknowledged LGIAsuper operates in an increasingly competitive environment where retention and growth are vital to a fund’s success.

“More than half our members no longer work for local government but choose to stay with the fund they know and trust when they change jobs or leave employment,” Ms Morris said.

For more than 50 years LGIAsuper has proudly shared a special partnership with hardworking Queenslanders who are dedicated to building strong, resilient communities across the State.

Ms Morris stated “We’re fortunate to have three great NRL teams here in Queensland and partnering with a community institution like the Cowboys is a way for us to acknowledge the pride we have in our State’s achievements and more importantly another avenue to engage with community and Indigenous groups.”

“It’s also a way for us to recognise our members for their ongoing loyalty and support, including those in North Queensland where a significant number of them live and work.”

To complement the partnership LGIAsuper has selected Michael Morgan, as its Player Ambassador.

CEO, David Todd, said Michael’s continued growth, solid on and off-field performance and ongoing commitment to the Cowboys embodies everything LGIAsuper aims to achieve for its members.

“His dedication to the local community and involvement with charitable organisations also make him the perfect ambassador for LGIAsuper as we broaden our community connections.”

“A key benefit of the partnership is the LGIAsuper Community Hub held at each home game in Townsville. This initiative will give the fund a chance to further connect with local communities by helping different charities raise awareness.”

“We’ve helped members achieve their financial goals since 1965. Extending a helping hand to not-for-profit organisations so they too can reach theirs is the natural and logical next step for the fund.”

“It’s also a great way for all members to indirectly help communities in need across the State,” he said.

Supporting a team so many people are passionate about is a cost-effective way for LGIAsuper to engage with current members wherever they work or live.

LGIAsuper is the super fund for current and former Queensland local government employees and their spouses. Today it looks after almost $9.5 billion in retirement savings for around 90,000 members.
