Energy Super and LGIAsuper announce new name: Brighter Super

Brighter Super

6 June 2022

New name, new brand, and still your trusted super partner through all life’s changing moments. Welcome to Brighter Super.

Since the merger of Energy Super and LGIAsuper last year, and the acquisition of Suncorp’s superannuation business (SPSL), we have been working hard to find a new name that could represent the legacy of our members and history of the contributing funds.

Brighter Super Group CEO Kate Farrar, who led the merger and acquisition, said she was proud to announce the new name.

“A huge thank you to all our members for contributing to the naming of our new group,” Ms Farrar said. “The investment in our new look and brand reflects the values of its legacy funds and their unwavering commitment to delivering world-class retirement outcomes for you, our members,” she said.

“On behalf of LGIAsuper, Energy Super and SPSL, I am proud to announce that on 1 July 2022, LGIAsuper will become Brighter Super. Brighter Super manages approximately $31 billion for its 260,000 members and is proudly 100% member owned.

“Each of the legacy funds has a rich history of serving Queenslanders,” she said. “United, the funds under the Brighter Super banner will now expand nationally to provide the same level of personal service for which each fund has been known and trusted.”

Feedback on the group’s new name was gathered across many levels of the business with member insights from our focus groups being central to the birth of Brighter Super and its bold new look.

The new look Brighter Super branding will be rolled out in stages with LGIAsuper leading the change on 1 July 2022, Energy Super in September 2022, and SPSL in January 2026.

“We continue to make change simple for members,” Ms Farrar said. “Our members can continue to talk with us the same way and be confident that we’ll be right by their side through all life’s changing moments,” Ms Farrar said.
