Delivering Super Fund return outcomes: What is the future performance agenda?
Global & Future Trends
CPD: 1 Hour(s)
This year many Australians were told that their Super Fund may have been underperforming and to consider the change to a higher performing fund, to improve their long-term savings ‘nest’. APRA's performance test is set to change the Superannuation landscape and funds delivery outcomes are now more in the spotlight than ever before. Will we see the markets’ dynamics change dramatically?
Our panel will explore:
What are the repercussions of the performance test on long-term investment efforts, and what are the longer-term trends of the 'underperforming funds' ?
How might funds ensure outperformance and avoid the bottom quartile over an extended period?
No doubt we will see large scale mergers and acquisitions of existing Super Fund bodies - what does this mean for the landscape of the industry?
Participants may be able to apply 1 hour towards meeting their annual continuing professional development obligations. It is the individual's obligation to determine relevance of CPD to their license conditions.
