Major actuarial certificate provider expands, rebrands
A major actuarial certificate provider has announced a rebrand and the intention to expand its service offerings to SMSFs in the retirement phase of superannuation.
Bendzulla Actuarial announced this morning it has changed its name to Accurium, and although its focus on actuarial certificates will continue, the company intends to expand its service offerings in the SMSF sector.
“Our core business will always be actuarial certificates, but with millions of baby boomer SMSF trustees retiring over the next decade, there’s also a real, unmet need for actuarial and risk consulting services specific to their predicament,” said Accurium’s chief executive Tracy Williams.
“A higher starting balance definitely helps protect SMSFs from the unique risks of retirement – but it doesn’t grant them immunity, especially when you consider that most expect higher than average incomes in retirement.
“Accurium will be the only consulting firm focused exclusively on solving the peculiar challenges of SMSFs in the retirement phase, like planning for certainty over an uncertain investment horizon.”
This rebrand and expansion follows Challenger’s acquisition of Accurium late last year.
