​SISFA changes its name

by |
The Small Independent Superannuation Funds Association is now called the Self-managed Independent Superannuation Funds Association.

The name change came about to reflect a wider user base, said SISFA chair Michael Lorimer.

“We believe that the amended name better reflects the new direction that SISFA is pursuing, including direct outreach to trustees and connecting with more advice providers to assist the nearly one million trustees who are running their own retirement funds.”

SISFA has represented the interests of the self-managed superannuation fund sector for over a decade. It is currently the only SMSF industry body solely representing all participants in the sector including administrators, accountants, auditors, lawyers, actuaries and advisers.

A name change is not the only exciting news for SISFA – it has a new director.

Nicholas Brookes – the founder and former chief executive of superannuation trustee CCSL – has been appointed the new non-executive director.

His career spans over 25 years at senior executive level in the investment, superannuation, private banking and financial services sectors in Australia, UK and Middle East.
