ASFA appoints Director of External Affairs and Investment

The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) today announced it has appointed James Bond to the newly created position of Director of External Affairs and Investment.

Mr Bond will have overall responsibility for ASFA’s advocacy with federal parliamentarians and for policy issues affecting the economy and investments. He brings 20 years of experience in public policy to the ASFA team and six years’ experience in the financial services industry, most recently with the Financial Services Council. In addition to a deep understanding of superannuation and financial services, he has extensive experience in communications and advocacy.

“I am delighted to welcome Mr Bond to the ASFA team,” said ASFA CEO, Ms Pauline Vamos.

“With his extensive experience working in the Commonwealth Treasury, and as a senior economic adviser, as well as his regular contributions to Australian media, he will provide valuable help with the important task of communicating ASFA’s messages both to government and to the broader public.

“Given the growth of the Australian superannuation system, the importance of how capital is allocated across the economy will continue to increase. In particular, impediments to long-term investing need to be removed and this will be an important focus of this role.

“It’s now more important than ever that we effectively communicate not just to the government but also to the community whose retirement outcomes in the future are so highly dependent on the decisions of government today,” Ms Vamos concluded.
