ING DIRECT now targets advisers with Living Super

Published on 03/09/2014

ING DIRECT is now making the Living Super platform available to ING DIRECT accredited advisers. Living Super, launched to the direct market in 2012, offers customers a simple online super solution that delivers real value, choice and control.

Living Super offers the first Balanced option available to all Australians with no administration or management fees and the ability to invest in Cash and Term Deposits held with ING DIRECT with no fees. Living Super also offers access to a range of managed funds, as well as real time share trading of shares listed on the ASX/S&P 200 index and selected ETF’s and LIC’s.

ING DIRECT clients now have the ability to authorise the deduction of their superannuation advice fee from their Living Super account. Customers can also allow their adviser non-transactional access to their Living super account.

ING DIRECT is also working on building an adviser portal, which it plans to launch early next year, to allow advisers to fully administer their clients’ Living Super portfolios.

“Living Super provides an industry leading solution for advisers looking for a low cost, functional and efficient online superannuation platform for their cost-sensitive clients” said Charles Smith, Key Account Manager, Wealth.
