Jeremy Cooper
Chairman, Retirement Income – Challenger Limited



There is growing pressure on superannuation funds, from both the Australian Government and their members, to provide an investment solution that ensures a guaranteed, real income in retirement. Building on his belief that “our approach to saving is all wrong and we need to think about monthly income, not net worth”, Nobel prize winner in Economics, Bob Merton, will explore ways in which the government and superannuation funds can ensure all Australians have access to a viable income stream in retirement.

Jeremy Cooper will then provide his insights on the current state of the post-retirement landscape including:

  • CIPRs and where the conversation is going
  • an update on the government activity in this area
  • what the post retirement landscape will look like in 3–5 years’ time in Australia.

Following these presentations, Dr Martin Fahy will join Bob and Jeremy for a wide-ranging discussion about post-retirement, the issues and challenges that funds face and the implications for retirees.
