"At launch five years ago, the Wealth division emphasised that our aim was to provide customers with a low cost, high support retail superannuation fund where fees were kept to a bare minimum. It's a fantastic achievement to have been able to bring about this result and to be so widely recognised for our ability to deliver high quality, great value products", Mr Rohan concluded.
