Aware Super and The Victorian Independent Schools Superannuation Fund (VISSF) have entered into merger talks.
The two funds have signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding to explore the benefits of a merger.
VISSF has a more than 60-year history as the default fund for teachers at independent schools across Victoria.
Aware Super has nearly 200,000 members working in the education industry and the fund believes the potential merger will help it build scale in the sector.
Aware Super said it hoped to complete the due diligence process in the coming weeks.
