UniSuper appoints risk chief with international experience

Executive Move


UniSuper has appointed Andrew Raftis as their new chief risk officer.

Raftis has an international risk background, having held senior risk management and executive roles with AXA, AIG, and Zurich in Switzerland, the US, and Singapore. Since returning to Australia in 2018, he has held consulting and advisory roles including with the AMP Employer Sponsored Superannuation Plan Policy Committee.

"I'm delighted to welcome Andrew to UniSuper," said chief executive Kevin O'Sullivan. "He brings with him a wealth of international and domestic risk management and assurance experience; and a track record for developing leading edge best practices in risk, compliance, and control functions. He will be a valuable set to the team."

"I am thrilled to be joining a fund with such a strong reputation for delivering excellent investment performance while also being member-focussed and a great place to work," said Raftis.

Raftis replaces Ruby Yadav, who left UniSuper for Mercer in February.
