AIST’s submission to Treasury supports the purpose of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) Industry Funding Model (IFM), which is to recover ASIC’s regulatory costs from entities in the industry sub-sectors that cause the need for regulatory effort by ASIC, rather than general taxpayers.

14 October 2022
AIST supports the policy intent of the Your Future Your Super (YFYS) package of reforms. In our compulsory system, where engagement is low, members should be able to trust that super funds are being held to account for their performance. Those who wish to choose should have access to reliable and useful product information that prioritizes the most important metrics.

AIST supports the overarching objectives of APRA’s proposed disclosure and reporting requirements to improve the transparency of remuneration arrangements and facilitate more consistent comparisons across financial services but notes that variable remuneration practices in the profit-to-member superannuation are not consistent within the sector nor directly comparable to other sectors.
