Superannuation eNews August 2012

From the editor's desk

While the Future of Financial Advice (FOFA) reform legislation is now locked in, there remain several uncertainties for superannuation on the horizon and we need to remain vigilant about these.

The Productivity Commission (PC) Inquiry into Default Funds in Modern Awards and the detail of the My Super reforms to name a couple.

Thanks again to everyone involved in the 2012 ACTU Investment Forum - this edition of Super enews draws heavily on your contributions.

It also contains a reminder that the new ACTU Superannuation Bargaining Kit - 'Stop Super Ripoffs' is available for unions and funds.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the forthcoming ACTU Superannuation Trustees Forum on October 12 when we will repeat last year's successful innovation of a trustees-only session.

Editor: Ian Wilson, General Manager, ACTU Member Connect
Next edition is due 12 November 2012.
