The long-awaited Financial Accountability Regime Bill 2023 (FAR) was passed by Parliament on 5 September 2023 and will apply to Superannuation in late March 2025. The purpose of FAR is to drive good governance and strong risk culture from the top, with particular spotlight on the actions and decisions of the most senior and influential senior executives. Whether you are exploring how to get started or are already on your way to implementing these requirements, this is a good checkpoint to assess and validate your approach.

This three-hour face-to-face workshop will be delivered by experienced consultants from Mercer’s Legal and Workforce Solutions team. Aimed to guide decision makers in the practicalities of implementing FAR, the workshop will provide practical insights into both how the new regime will impact the work of senior executives and directors, and what steps can be taken to manage risk. Participants will have the opportunity to explore issues and practical tips for implementing FAR effectively.

At the conclusion of this important workshop, you will understand:

  • the practical implications of FAR on roles and responsibilities of key decision makers and new requirements specific to the decision-making process of senior executives and directors.
  • the reasonable steps that are expected to be taken by senior executives and boards to meet the new accountability obligations, including practical examples of what good looks like.
  • how culture is formed, and the role leaders play in driving and shaping culture
  • how to measure risk culture
  • the key remuneration requirements of FAR, including incentives design elements that support risk culture..
It will also be a great chance to hear from your peers about how they are tackling FAR and network …in person.


Key topics to be discussed

Understanding the details of FAR including:

  • The new responsibility and accountability framework Impact on trustees’ organisational design and structure.
  • Practical implications on decision-making practices of senior executives and board

Unpacking how to implement ‘reasonable steps’ including:

  • Challenges and potential watch outs of associated changes
  • Amendments to remuneration arrangements and other consequence management measures – with emphasis on particular focus on applying claw-back arrangements in practice.
  • Where the trustee is part of a broader corporate group, the potential impact on other entities (and executives) in that group.

Embedding a risk rather than a compliance culture lens:

  • Dissecting culture formation and the role leaders play in driving healthy cultures.
  • How to apply a risk culture lens to the new regime, challenges as well as markers of good risk culture practice.
