Vale David Smith

The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) regretfully acknowledges the sad passing of David Smith and extends its deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

“If David’s life can be summed up, it is in a single adage: ‘Do the right thing and everyone wins’”, said ASFA Chair, Dr Michael Easson.

David was a leading contributor to the superannuation industry through his roles as a Director of the Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees and as a Director of superannuation fund HESTA.

“David was a person who approached every challenge thinking through principle and impact. He thought about consequences, intended and unintended. He will be missed,” concluded Dr Easson.
