About ASFA

ASFA has been operating since 1962 and is the peak policy, research and advocacy body for Australia’s superannuation industry.

What we do

ASFA’s purpose is to help achieve the best retirement outcomes for fund members and there are a number of ways we work towards this.

Policy and research

The ASFA research centre is the heart of our advocacy activities. Our team has a wealth of knowledge regarding policy making, investment, insurance, tax, advice, regulation and financial services in general. Its expertise forms the basis of all our submissions.
