Steve Freeborn - Head of Superannuation
Steve has over 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry across all parts of the value chain, having held senior positions with BT Financial Group and Perpetual Limited before (re) joining Rice Warner in late 2012.
After initially being trained as an actuarial consultant at MJR Consultants (a predecessor firm to Rice Warner), where he helped develop the outsourcing service and project managed a number of transitions, Steve spent over 12 years in two of Australia’s pre-eminent wealth management businesses in a combination of sales, sales management and business management roles in Adelaide and Sydney with intra-state, interstate and national responsibilities.
He brings a high level of market knowledge together with a deep technical knowledge of the superannuation, insurance and investment industry and its participants. His experience in business acquisitions has provided deep insight into the various business drivers and identification of where and how synergies are realised.
Steve has a strong reputation throughout the financial services industry across Australia as a trusted and reliable business professional. He has been recognised for his leadership capabilities and has experience leading teams to develop and implement business plans and sales and marketing strategies.
Steve is a Senior Fellow of the Financial Services Institute in Australia and an Affiliate of the Actuaries Institute in Australia.
Outside of work and when he is not running his children around or teaching them to drive, Steve likes to keep active. He is a keen cyclist and enjoys playing tennis and golf. You can invariably find him at the beach in summer and watching the AFL in winter!
