Two former politicians have been appointed to the SMSF Association’s public policy committee, marking the first time the association has looked outside its membership ranks for the roles.
Former NSW Liberal premier Nick Greiner and former Labor parliamentary secretary Bernie Ripoll have become members of the committee, which comprises of six other members from the SMSFA’s board, senior executive management and membership.
“We are excited about getting two former politicians of the calibre and reputation of Nick and Bernie, and look forward to getting their input into our vigorous policy debates," outgoing CEO Andrea Slattery said.
The appointments signal an intent for the SMSFA to up its policy pushes on issues of superannuation and retirement income.
