MetLife Australia has been awarded the insurance mandate for Qantas Super from 1 July 2020.

MetLife is excited to partner with Qantas Super, one of Australia’s oldest superannuation funds, to support their members with an innovative and affordable life insurance offering.

While recent events, including COVID-19, have impacted insurance pricing, MetLife has been able to demonstrate pricing, product and a service offering that will serve Qantas Super’s members interests.  This combined with aligned values and the long history of the two organisations, make this a compelling offering for members. 

Commenting on the partnership, Richard Nunn, CEO, MetLife Australia, said: “We’re thrilled to be awarded the Qantas Super insurance mandate and look forward to welcoming their members to the MetLife family. There is good alignment between our two businesses, as we have many shared values, including a focus on supporting members.

“MetLife and Qantas are two long-standing organisations with each having more than 100 years of history. This means we both understand the value of long-term partnerships and that a commitment to members must endure over time. This partnership will ensure Qantas Super members are supported with life insurance that will be a vital safety net for them as we all continue to adapt to a changing world.”

Qantas Super CEO Michael Clancy said: “MetLife’s global strength and stability, and experience in insuring aviation employer groups makes them well positioned to be our insurance partner. We’re excited to work with MetLife to support our members through this challenging period and help them look forward to better times.”
