Advisers called to action on super charter

by |

The new super Charter Group will be holding two public forums this week to discuss the way forward for superannuation in Australia.

The Super Charter is currently being drafted by the Charter Group of experts, which are conducting consultations and seeking submissions. The group consists of Hon. Alan Goldberg AO QC, Ross Jones, deputy chair and member of APRA, Jeremy Cooper, chairman of Retirement Income at Challenger Limited, Elana Rubin, former chair of AustralianSuper and Steve Tucker, former CEO of MLC.

The purpose of the Charter is to “enshrine the core objectives, values and principles of our superannuation system for the long term”.

Minister for Superannuation Bill Shorten has urged those interested in the future of super to have their say by making a submission or attending one of the public forums.

    too much emphasis is on taxing these funds and legislation, people need education,most feel disenfranchised and don't beleive the gov will leave super alone,they don't have any real 'ownership' of their own money
