Wade’s extensive experience includes his time at CBUS, where he has been since 2013, and KPMG for eight years prior in various audit and risk consulting roles within financial services.

He holds a Bachelor of Law, and a Bachelor of Commerce and Administration from Victoria University of Wellington, NZ.

UniSuper CEO, Peter Chun, said he was delighted to welcome Wade Martin to the UniSuper team.

UniSuper CEO Peter Chun expressed his pride in the entire team for the award wins:

“Wade's lived risk experience, understanding of the superannuation sector, strategic mindset and leadership were stand-out attributes during the selection process. He will be a valuable addition to our executive leadership team and our fund as a whole."

Wade welcomed the opportunity:

“UniSuper is an outstanding fund, and I look forward to contributing to upholding UniSuper’s impressive risk management track record.”

Peter also thanked Andrew Raftis for his hard work and dedication to UniSuper over the past three years.

"Andrew has been an integral part of our executive leadership team and has made a significant contribution to ensuring UniSuper's risk and compliance are in the best position that they could be. He leaves UniSuper in a better place with a strong reputation with our regulators and auditors. I wish him all the best."
