Pensions Policy Institute (PPI)
Dec 2018 Australia, Europe (including EU), United Kingdom, Netherlands, Sweden, United States Countries - excl. European Union and US, European Union members, Investment - General, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC)
The PPI, sponsored by Which? magazine, has published a report entitled 'Charges, returns and transparency in DC - what can we learn from other countries?'. The report compares data for DC workplace pensions from Australia, the United States, the Netherlands and Sweden to explore workplace pension charges and allow analysis of whether, on a global level, UK charges are high or low, transparent and offer good investment returns. The report examines the level of disclosed costs and charges in each country in the context of the country’s pensions system, the investment returns achieved and also the transparency and effectiveness of the governance oversight of charging.

Superannuation Fund Disclosure: Past, Present and Future
Superannuation Fund Disclosure: Past, Present and Future
Monash University/Australian Centre for Financial Studies
Oct 2018 Australia Administration, Countries - excl. European Union and US, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Investment - General
The Australian Centre for Financial Studies has published a study setting out four disclosure indexes for Australian superannuation funds alongside an evaluation of the disclosure practices of these funds for the period between 2010 and 2016.  The four superfunds disclosure indexes are the: SuperGov Index, SuperInvest Index, SuperFee Index and SuperInfo Index. According to the findings, superfunds had succeeded in disclosing information related to their governance, with many achieving full disclosure in the SuperGov Index. However, disclosure of fund fees and costs, and investment-related information was mixed, meaning that the level of disclosure, as measured by the SuperInvest and SuperFee Indices, remained limited for many superfunds.
