The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) is the peak policy, research and advocacy body for Australia’s superannuation (super) industry.
Our purpose is to help achieve the best retirement outcomes for members of super funds through the development of good public policy and industry best practice. ASFA has been operating since 1962.
- Not for profit: We re-invest our income back into the industry and community via research and advocacy projects based on the expertise of our experienced policy and Research Centre teams. This includes producing submissions to the government, reports, best practice papers, education for the community and research into key issues affecting superannuation fund members.
- Non-sector aligned: ASFA focuses on whole-of-system issues including superannuation system design, regulatory frameworks, industry operations and governance. We take positions that are in the best interest of fund members, rather than advocating any one sector’s interests over another.
- Non-party political: We advocate for sound, long-term public policy, not politically aligned outcomes.
Through our members – which include superannuation funds from the corporate, industry, retail and public sectors, as well as service providers – we represent the whole super industry.
We are also a registered training organisation and offer continuing professional development (CPD) courses and superannuation education for people at all stages of their career. For more information, see ASFA Learning.
