About This Report


Australia's superannuation system forms the backbone of the nation's envied pension system. Three pillars support Australia's pension system: a means-tested age pension, compulsory super contributions (i.e. the Superannuation Guarantee) and voluntary contribution schemes. The Superannuation Guarantee requires employers to contribute funds equal to 9.0% of their employees' incomes to the employees' choice of super fund. This system has resulted in the Australian Superannuation Funds industry growing to become the fourth-largest private pension fund market in the world, with almost $1.3 trillion in assets as at June 2012.

The Superannuation Funds industry provides retirement benefits to members and includes both large and small funds. Industry revenue equals contributions plus net investment revenue. Investment revenue is income earned from investments plus capital gains or losses. Enterprises represent the major funds (i.e. super funds with five or more members), while establishments include all super funds.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
