Departing CIO David Todd

First published: October 9

Joining LGIAsuper in 2005 as Chief Manager of Investments, David Todd has dedicated nearly 15 years of his working life to serving LGIAsuper and our valued members.

After just over a year at the fund, David was promoted to the position of CEO, a role he held for more than a decade while also continuing to manage the investment operations of the business.

During this time David oversaw many accomplishments and milestones, including the merger with City Super and LGIAsuper’s transition to a public offer fund.

In 2018 David stepped aside for current CEO Kate Farrar, which allowed him to concentrate on his responsibilities as Chief Investment Officer.

With a long career of excellence in the investment and financial services sectors, and his passion for putting our members first, David has been an invaluable contributor to the growth and success of LGIAsuper.

David said that while it was sad to leave a business that was such a large part of his life, he couldn’t help but smile when he looked back on his career.

“I have enjoyed every minute of my time at LGIAsuper and have been lucky enough to work with some of the best in the industry,” David said.

“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to help everyday Queenslanders set themselves up for a fruitful retirement, which is really the most rewarding part of the job.”

LGIAsuper CEO Kate Farrar said she couldn’t thank David enough for his service and commitment and that he would be missed by the whole LGIAsuper team.

“David has been an integral member of our team, serving our business and members for almost 15 years. Without him LGIAsuper wouldn’t be the success it is today,” Kate said.

“We extend our gratitude and thanks to David for his dedication and loyalty and wish him all the best in his retirement.”

David’s departure took effect on 1 October 2019. His successor is incoming CIO Troy Rieck who joined the fund in September.
