MySuper product heatmap: APRA FAQs 

APRA has released a set of frequently asked questions (FAQs) in relation to the MySuper product heatmap due to be released in December. 

The FAQs confirm that the heatmap will “show the outcomes being delivered to MySuper members in the areas of investment performance and fees and costs” and “provide indicators of trends in a trustee’s operations relevant to the sustainable delivery of member outcomes”. 

Importantly, the FAQs make it clear that the data used by APRA to derive the heatmap will be ‘locked down’ on 29 October.
