APRA’s Evolving approach to Supervising Governance, Culture, Remuneration and Accountability

Since the Financial Services Royal Commission, significant regulatory attention has been given to improving the way financial services organisations identify and manage governance, culture, remuneration and accountability in a way that delivers the right outcomes for members and other stakeholders.

These heightened expectations take the form of both new regulations and increased supervisory scrutiny, which requires a much broader lens that goes far beyond compliance as evidenced in policies and procedures. Now, APRA explicitly considers governance, culture, remuneration and accountability (GCRA) in its supervisory assessments of regulated entities. In considering how to respond to and meet these expectations, it’s important that superannuation entities can meaningfully speak to risk culture, how it supports the ability to operate within risk appetite, and how the desired behaviour outcomes are incentivised, rewarded or penalised across the organisational system.

Learning Outcomes and Key Participant Takeaways

Participants will gain insight into APRA’s expectations and approach to supervising GCRA in the broader context of the regulatory framework. In addition to enhanced understanding of supervisory approaches and tools, participants will also explore the types of work that can be conducted internally and the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches.
