NGS Super, the industry fund for Australia's independent education sector, has added a new senior risk and compliance manager ahead of increased scrutiny on the superannuation sector.
Kimmy Leung Shing joins from Allianz where she held a similar position.
Before that, she worked for Media Super for three years but left following the merger of the super fund with Cbus last year.
In that role, Leung Shing reported to the chief executive with a dotted line to the audit & risk committee chair.
She was responsible for managing the risk function across Media Super.
This included all risk-related activities from identifying and reporting risk and liaising with executives, APRA and other relevant stakeholders, to designing and implementing policies, processes and frameworks to mitigate risks.
Previously she spent 12 years at BNP Paribas Securities Services as a compliance manager.
Leung Shing started her financial career as a tax consultant 20 years ago with stints at Gotsis & Rubic, Mar & Associates and KPMG Audit.
"We are delighted to welcome Kimmy to NGS Super as our new Senior Risk and Compliance Manager," said NGS head of risk, audit & compliance Graeme Alexander.
"With over 15 years of extensive experience in the financial industry, including a profound understanding of superannuation, Kimmy brings a wealth of knowledge to our team.
"Her track record of successfully leading and implementing risk and compliance projects, coupled with her adept stakeholder engagement skills, will play a pivotal role in ensuring NGS Super continues to meet the highest standards of regulatory compliance, safeguarding the financial interests of our members."
