As we await the Government’s response to the Productivity Commission there’s only one thing we can know for certain. Rivalry amongst super funds is set to intensify.

One way to prepare for the heightened competitive pressure ahead is to be fully informed about all the potential implications arising if the Government proceeds with a ‘best in show’ list, including how this might interact with the single-default fund and member outcomes test.

Join David Carruthers, Frontier Advisors and Scott Abercrombie, SuperRatings as they discuss the many potential issues arising from the PC’s recommendations, such as:

  • what is the ideal number of funds to have on the shortlist?
  • what criteria would be used to select these products?
  • what are the implications for the structure of the industry?
  • who should comprise the panel of ‘independent experts’ that will deliberate over the best in show selection?
  • what discussions are being had at Board level on this topic?

Don’t miss this opportunity to find out how other funds across the industry are responding to increasing competitive pressure.
