REST Industry Super, one of Australia’s largest superannuation funds with almost two million members, has been awarded Highly Commended Trusted Brand in the 2016 Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand Survey, marking the third year in a row the fund has been recognised as one of the three most trusted brands in superannuation.

The Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands survey, which marks its fifteenth year of operation in 2016, is based on broad survey responses from over 2,400 Australians rating 65 categories of brands on a trust scale of 1 to 10.

Chief Executive Officer Damian Hill said the award was recognition of the fund’s commitment to delivering the best possible products, services and benefits for REST members.

“Every day the REST team comes to work with one mission – to deliver a positive retirement future for our members,” said Mr Hill.

“To have this trust and confidence placed in our brand for three years in a row is humbling, and I’m sure I speak on behalf of every REST employee to express our thanks for this honour.

“We’d never be able to achieve this without the support and advocacy of our almost two million members and 170,000 employers, and I’d like to thank them for their continued support,” concluded Mr Hill.
