AIST endorses the proposed amendments. Funds are currently operating under a dual regulatory regime while preparing their financial reports for the 2021/22 financial year.

AIST supports APRA’s direction for data collection, suggesting there should be a clear ongoing focus of improving member outcomes in relation to data collection, better articulation of the purpose and intended use for each element of data collection, and priority identification of key data requirements. AIST also proposes a structure and timetable for managing major reporting changes

16 May 2022

10 May 2022
AIST notes that the application of the proposed crisis preparedness standards within the superannuation sector is limited to the trustees / RSE licensees of funds and not the funds themselves. This distinction means that profit-to-member super funds are by-and-large already compliant with the new requirements proposed.
29 April 2022
AIST supports AFCA’s proposed removal of the superannuation levy and introduction of a simplified registration and complaint fee pricing model. A user-pays system will ensure that cross-subsidisation is minimised. AIST raises some areas specific to the superannuation sector for further review and consideration.

AIST appreciates the intent of the Proposed Guidance on Source of Funds and Source of Wealth and calls on AUSTRAC to incorporate clear direction on the application of these measures to the superannuation sector.
12 April 2022
AIST opposes ASIC’s proposal to defer choice product dashboard requirements for a sixth time, and for what would be a total of 13 years, as this would be inconsistent with measures to improve disclosure and consumer protections.
