04 June 2021
AIST supports transparency and accountability regarding proxy voting, however, if implemented, the prescriptive nature of the detailed recommended disclosure regime and additional regulation on the ownership structure of proxy advisors would result in the undermining of trustees’ capacity to act in member’s best financial interest.
25 May 2021
AIST supports the objectives of the Your Future Your Super package to hold super funds to account for their performance, address the creation of unintended multiple accounts, empower members and increase transparency and accountability. AIST does not believe the legislation or regulations will deliver on these objectives.

3. Best financial interests duty
09 March 2021
AIST acknowledges the further clarity and guidance APRA has provided in this iteration but calls on APRA to seek mandatory SuperStream insurance data fields to better promote member insurance interests. AIST also calls for further guidance on independent certification arrangements, timing, and process; and to clarify expectations for members leaving employer supported insurance arrangements.
19 February 2021
AIST supports the intent of the Bill. Superannuation assets are already highly regulated and protected, and these measures must be applied in a way that avoids duplication, uncertainly and unnecessary cost. AIST makes recommendations to support the efficient implantation of the legislation and associated rules within superannuation.
AIST supports the proposal to record all complaints, provide reasons and that reporting to ASIC is needed. We submit that certain aspects of the data framework must be appropriately designed to avoid both operational inefficiencies and potential harm to vulnerable members.
12 February 2021
AIST is concerned that the content of the revised draft Standard is overly focused on issues related to ADIs and APRA-regulated insurance entities and does not consider the different remuneration features of RSE licensees.
05 February 2021
AIST welcomes the Board of Taxation’s review of capital gains tax roll-overs and appreciate the opportunity to make a submission on the second phase of the consultation.
