Superannuation Trustee Office
Superannuation is heavily regulated. As a superannuation trustee, your regulatory obligations are the same, no matter the size of your fund. The burden of compliance can be costly and time consuming.
By appointing Equity Trustees as your superannuation trustee, you are outsourcing the trustee function, relieving your business of the time and cost of performing the trustee role and freeing resources to focus on your core service offer to members while still achieving a high standard of compliance and governance for your fund.
Since 1888, Equity Trustees’ core business has been acting as trustee for private and corporate clients. As your superannuation trustee, we work with you to establish a clear understanding of the business of your fund before working to efficiently take on your administrative and regulatory burden, leaving you to focus on pursuing your fund's and growth and service to members.
