Chris Cuffe Kicks Off Women in Super Lunchtime Series 2018

This year’s Women in Super (WIS) Lunchtime Series kicked off with an audience of 250 attendees to hear investment industry leader and philanthropist, Chris Cuffe share anecdotes from his career and insights into the evolution of the super industry. With a career spanning all facets of the industry there was plenty of material for interviewer, WIS NSW Board Member, Sandi Orleow to work with. 

In a surprising admission, Chris revealed his entrepreneurial foray into the finance world was in fact inspired by the Tooth Fairy!  Chris also shared his thoughts on the vertical integration of the banking sector into wealth management, opining that sector’s return to disaggregation was, in many ways predictable. As a sitting member of UniSuper’s Investment Committee, Chris also touched upon the challenges the industry faces with internalisation and highlighted some of positives delivered by “default super”. 

At the event, WIS NSW announced the continuation of their annual scholarship program in partnership with the AGSM@UNSW Business School.
