Self-managed superannuation funds – Markets trends and regulatory focus

Introduction

Good morning and thank you for inviting me to speak today. I’m delighted to be at the annual CPA Australia National SMSF Conference.

The self-managed superannuation (SMSF) sector continues to expand. With around 550,000 SMSFs, over a million members, and assets totalling more than $550 billion, this is a hugely significant sector of Australian investors.

This morning I will:

  • Ÿgive a snapshot of where the superannuation industry is at and the importance of the SMSF sector as a competitive force within the industry
  • Ÿprovide an update on the limited Australian Financial Services (AFS) licensing and SMSF auditor registration regimes, and
  • Ÿtouch on recent ASIC action in the sector.
