Founded in 1978 by David Orford, Financial Synergy began life as an actuarial firm in Albert Rd, Melbourne. Recognising the opportunity to help shape the superannuation industry, Financial Synergy began developing software in-house. Business flourished, and clients included some of Australia’s leading superannuation funds and providers. After a move in 1991, the company settled in the Melbourne Central Tower in 1997.
Continued growth and innovation helped Financial Synergy grow to over 120 staff spread across 4 offices, setting new technological benchmarks with their market leading superannuation platform.
In 2016 Financial Synergy was acquired by IRESS and remains proudly Australian owned and operated.
Today, as part of IRESS, a fully integrated registry and online solution are delivered helping clients drive efficiency and deliver superior service.
An ever-changing work environment has led to a re-imagined back office and straight through online solutions, with the company widely recognised for ongoing technological innovation and proven ability to deliver.
Clients now range from small to the very largest funds covering retail, government and industry superannuation with a combined $250 billion funds under administration.
With ongoing research and development, our commitment is to help every client deliver more to their members and get the most from their investment in Acurity – today and into the future.
