AIST supports the principle of choice in superannuation but argues this has to be provided in a way that does not leave consumers worse off, and operates in an environment of meaningful disclosure and consumer protections.

While AIST strongly supports the greater alignment of MySuper and Choice disclosure through the introduction of Choice dashboards, AIST is concerned that certain products (including platforms and legacy products) – in which there is considerable member money invested - are excluded. Alignment of MySuper and Choice is needed to protect members and ensure greater superannuation system efficiency.

AIST supports giving the Commissioner of Taxation the power to modify superannuation and taxation law to provide beneficial outcomes for taxpayers. While necessary safeguards are provided, the ATO should also be required to publish an annual report on the use of this power, on an overall basis and addressing each case.

AIST’s vision is for a better retirement future for all Australians. A key component of a better retirement future for all Australians is to better enable older Australians to continue working if they are able to do so, and to contribute to their superannuation benefit. Superannuation policy is one driver of workforce participation.

AIST recommends that APRA ensures that its prudential governance framework features the right balance of the range of factors that help to ensure good governance and highly effective board decision-making.

AIST has long been a supporter of high governance standardsin the industry and we are committed to working with Government and APRA to achieve best practice outcomes. We do not, however, believe that structural changes to board composition, in the form ofmandatingone-third independent directors,achievesthat aim.
