27 July 2017
Relief application: Disclosure of fees and costs for superannuation products
26 July 2017
This ATO consultation seeks feedback on the design of the online choice of fund form.
09 July 2017
AIST recommends that a post retirement framework be required to be developed by trustees. This would assist trustees in developing a preferred retirement income strategy for their members, in line with members’ needs and best interests. To strengthen putting the best interests of members first, current gaps in the Choice disclosure space require attention as a priority.
28 June 2017
AIST has concerns around the use of a compensation scheme of last resort for superannuation complaints notably because unpaid determinations are not an issue within the superannuation sector as super funds are required by law to comply with the decision that is made.
22 June 2017
AIST notes that the assessment of the levies is difficult, given the current lack of a Cost Recovery Impact Statement. We note that it is difficult to assess whether the levies comply with the Government’s Cost Recovery Guidelines, particularly the items relating to additional funding. AIST recommends that a CRIS be provided with the levies discussion paper in future years.
21 June 2017
AIST supports all efforts to better support employees who may be affected by an employer’s insolvency. We endorse Industry Super Australia’s submission and point to the role that Single Touch Payroll can play as a detection mechanism of financial trouble.
14 June 2017
In this joint submission, AIST and ISA argue for removal of exemptions from the conflicted remuneration prohibitions. We also put a case for client fee agreements to be made annually, as opposed to bi-annually as they are currently. Finally, we call for a strengthening of the rules around soft dollar benefits.
AIST and ISA, in a joint submission, have identified key issues regarding the proposal to establish a new external dispute resolution scheme to replace the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal and the Financial Ombudsman Service.
26 May 2017
AIST supports the introduction of an ASIC industry funding model. We reiterate our lack of support for any carve-outs (eg the ‘Statutory Levy’) from the Government’s Cost Recovery Guidelines.
12 May 2017
An effective breach reporting framework is critical for effective enforcement of the financial services regulatory regime. AIST supports the Review’s proposals to strengthen the breach reporting framework, the inclusion of breaches by financial advisers and credit licensees, and requiring ASIC to report annually on breach reporting at the licensee level.
