07 August 2019
AIST is supportive of the powers which allow ASIC to step in and protect consumers’ interests but continue to highlight that in order for the powers to be effective their implementation must be accompanied by addressing systemic gaps in the disclosure and reporting framework.
15 July 2019
AIST submits that in its current form the proposed Treasury Laws Amendment (Putting Members’ Interests First) Bill 2019 would be significantly detrimental to members and would undermine trust in the superannuation system.
05 July 2019
AIST submits that the superannuation industry is made up of funds with varying ownership structures. Profit-to-member RSE licensees are run solely to benefit members and are not a source of profit to their owners(s) and this should be fully considered in the application to own or control an RSE licensee.
19 June 2019
AIST strongly agrees that financial firms should be identified within AFCA determinations.
14 June 2019
AIST believes that it is important that regulators are well resourced to conduct their supervisory duties however recommends that the raising of any levies on the industry to cover this should be on a risk-weighted basis.
29 May 2019
AIST submits that APRA’s proposed changes to Prudential Standard SPS 515 do not properly align it with the recent member outcomes assessment legislation. The promotion of the financial interests of members required by law must be reflected in the prudential standards, especially by giving primary consideration to the long-term net returns that deliver optimal retirement incomes to members.
24 May 2019
AIST is supportive of broadening the definition of dependency to recognise cultural adoption and reflect First Australian kinship structures. We urge Treasury to consult directly with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to understand the issues they face in relation to superannuation and the best steps to address them.
06 May 2019
The joint Code owners of the Insurance in Super Code of Practice (AIST, ASFA & FSC) have jointly responded to the Treasury consultation on the development of universal terms for insurance within MySuper.
03 May 2019
AIST strongly believes that the public comparative reporting of complaint data is an important component of the financial services system.
26 April 2019
AIST rejects the Government’s proposal to allow the payment of grandfathered commissions and other conflicted remuneration under a scheme that does not put members’ interests front and centre.
