Our team

 

When it comes to having enough money to live the way you want, good financial planning makes all the difference.

Maritime Super's financial planners understand the unique needs of our members and don't accept commissions from third party providers – so you can be confident that their advice is based on what's best for you.

Our financial planners are based in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Fremantle. If you can’t make it into one of our offices, don't worry; they travel around Australia and can come to you.
