With the relentless onslaught of regulatory and legislative change, this session provides insights into what's on APRA and ASIC's radar. It covers the Your Future, Your Super performance test, what APRA expects of funds that have failed, and whether they are open to amending the benchmarks used in the test as well as insights into the review of unlisted asset valuations practice and what to expect from the Choice heatmap. ASIC also gave their thoughts on greenwashing, investment option labelling, portfolio holding disclosure, market integrity issues, and much more.
