Oscar Fabian has announced his retirement from full-time executive roles effective August 31 after a six-year tenure at VicSuper. He ends a 30-year-long career in investment management.

As CIO, Fabian oversaw the investment committee, which makes recommendations on investment policy and strategy. 

Prior to his role at VicSuper, Fabian spent time as CIO at State Super Financial Services (now StatePlus) and National Australian Financial Management.

VicSuper said it has begun a search for Fabian’s replacement.
