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.

Rich Man, Poor Man: The Policy Implications of Canadians Living Longer
CD Howe Institute E-Brief
CD Howe Institute
23 Aug 2018 Canada Countries - excl. European Union and US, Longevity
The CD Howe Institute has published a paper examining the relationship between earnings and longevity in Canada using an administrative dataset of Canada Pension Plan recipients. The study measures how longevity differs across earnings levels and uses these calculations for individuals in different birth cohorts to observe if the earnings-longevity gradient is steepening or if longevity is improving equally for everyone. According to the paper, the findings have direct policy implications for pensions and these are explored by showing how longevity affects the value of an annuity.
