Equity Trustees appoints Head of Insurance

Executive Move


Equity Trustees has boosted its Superannuation Trustee Office (STO) with the appointment of Princess Navarro as head of insurance.

Navarro was previously a principal of Mercer and served as the firm's insurance, policy and governance leader. In that role, she was responsible for developing insurance policy responses to industry and legislative change, strategically managing insurer relationships and meeting the governance requirements of insurance products within superannuation.

Navarro is one of four new STO appointees to expand capability in the areas of claims, insurance and client liaison, with Ian Donaldson joining as a senior client account manager, Pricillia Chand as a trustee officer (claims), and Anthony Marasigan as a fund accountant.

Mark Blair, executive general manager of the STO, said that the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry threw in to sharp focus the importance of a strong and operationally independent trustee office.

He added: “Equity Trustees welcomes our newest appointments – they are an important part of our ongoing commitment to growing and strengthening our role as a leader in superannuation trusteeship."
