Media Release: NGS Super and Australian Catholic Superannuation merger will not proceed

NGS Super and Australian Catholic Superannuation have confirmed that, following discussions and extensive due diligence over the last 12 months, the funds will not merge.


Since the announcement of the planned merger in August 2020, the regulatory and commercial environments have changed considerably.


Both funds will continue to focus on delivering the best outcomes for their members to help them achieve a financially secure future.


NGS Super’s Chair Dick Shearman said, “Our members’ interests have always been at the core of this proposed merger and after very careful consideration we’re confident the best outcome is for both funds to continue independently.”


ACS’s Chair David Hutton said, “We also remain committed to acting in the best financial interests of our members and will continue with our strategy to achieve greater scale into the future”.
