Phase 1 - Expenses, Asset Allocation, Insurance Arrangements and Fees and Costs


The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) has released the final consultation package for Phase 1 of its project to expand the breadth, depth and consistency of its superannuation data collection.

Launched last November, APRA’s multi-year Superannuation Data Transformation aims to improve member outcomes by enhancing the comparability and consistency of reported data on APRA-regulated superannuation funds. Phase 1 of the project (Breadth) addresses the highest priority gaps in APRA’s data collection, particularly for choice products and investment options.

Today’s consultation package contains topic papers, draft reporting standards and data collection templates which can be found below:
