04 July 2018
AIST believes it is important the proposed rules adequately replicate existing dispute resolution arrangements to ensure that consumers are not worse off overall because of the transition to AFCA. There are several issues that must be addressed to ensure that AFCA will be an efficient and effective dispute resolution body.
15 June 2018
AIST conditionally supports the proposal to allow victims of crime to access a perpetrator’s superannuation where the perpetrator made contributions to intentionally shield their assets.
AIST supports the proposed amendments to the ASX Corporate Governance Principles & Recommendations. The ASX principles play an important role in establishing and maintaining high governance standards within ASX listed companies and we believe the proposals will help improve decision making by those companies.
AIST supports the proposal to include a retirement income covenant in the SIS Act. However, we do not support the proposal to mandate a CIPR as a default product for members’ retirements, as this is a decision that trustees should make having regard to the needs of their members.
08 June 2018
AIST supports CPS 234 as a useful mechanism to promote increased focus on information security and to promote continuous improvement. AIST believes that the requirement to notify incidents to APRA within 24 hours should be clarified with respect to levels of seriousness, with less material breaches set to 5 working days. Clarification of notification of control weaknesses should also be clarified.
AIST supports the improvements in the process for raising levies. However, greater transparency, accountability and fairness are needed. Firstly, any discussion paper should be released simultaneously with a Cost Recovery Impact Statement and an updated Regulator Performance Assessment.
28 May 2018
AIST generally supports the package, but changes are needed to better meet members’ best interests. The fee cap calculation needs review and sell spreads need to be included in the calculation of exit fees in order to prevent gaming.
25 May 2018
AIST supports the measures in this Bill, however we consider that limiting the discussion on unpaid super to the Superannuation Guarantee and employees has several disadvantages. AIST has proposed a series of enhancements which could further improve the Bill.
12 April 2018
This supplementary letter addresses the Productivity Commission’s consideration of insurance in the third stage of their inquiry into the competitiveness and efficiency of the superannuation system.
10 April 2018
AIST supports appropriate regulatory guidance for disclosure regarding complaints resolution processes. Provision must be made for any delays in the transition to the new AFCA regime, and AIST supports transitional relief for the event that the transition is unable to occur.
