Annual superannuation bulletin

Monday 31 January 2022

The annual superannuation bulletin provides an overview of the superannuation industry, and is published on an annual basis. These statistics contains information on funds and membership profile, key financial performance metrics, financial position, fees and expenses. 

Changes to presentation for 2020

To promote ease of data use and in response to user feedback, APRA has implemented a streamlined presentation of the ASB. The ASB is now split into three files, each containing industry aggregates:

  • Superannuation entities
  • MySuper products
  • Licensees

The contents of the files are the same as the existing ASB, with some additional timeseries data included. The files contain data from 2015, with historical data remaining available on the APRA website, below.
