Australia’s ASFA lashes out at ‘over-regulated’ super industry

first_imgIndustry leader Martin Fahy said Australia cannot expect to regulate its way to better outcomes from its superannuation industry through an overly zealous focus on short-term investment performance.Fahy, chief executive officer of the industry’s peak body, the Australian Superannuation Fund Association (ASFA), spoke at ASFA’s 2019 conference this week that a focus on regulation was more likely to detract from than to enhance net performance within the system.“I would argue that superannuation is currently in the grip of a contagious false narrative, which risks undermining the retirement outcomes of Australians,” he said.The irony, he intimated, was that the Australian superannuation system was universally regarded as a benchmark, and an excellent example for global pension industry leaders to follow as they looked to progress their own pension industries. According to the most recent Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) report, Australia has “about the best investment returns and lowest costs charged to fund members in the world”, he noted.The OECD ranked Australia as the top performing country over a five-year period, and second best after Canada over 15 years, returning 6.7% and 4.7%, respectively.“So how can it be that, locally, our system has so many detractors, despite all evidence to the contrary?” asked Fahy. “Others want to emulate us, yet we find ourselves in a deep malaise that is proving difficult to shake.”Australia is to hold yet another inquiry into its superannuation industry, the recently-announced Review of the Retirement Income System.“If the review is to fully deliver on its aspiration to establish a single source of truth, then it should place into the public domain the all-important Model of Australian Retirement Incomes, (MARIA)” he said.Otherwise, “the contagious false narrative will continue to permeate debate and hold us all back”.Fahy said Australia had to move beyond a fractious debate on adequacy and contribution rates and focus on the next chapter of the unfinished superannuation story.That chapter would see large pools of patient responsible pension capital that had the potential to address many of Australia’s most pressing issues.Among these was the challenge of creating liveable cities in the face of growing urbanisation.“Superannuation has the potential to address the vexed issue of how we develop the necessary infrastructure, and specifically what role private capital should play in the development of transport, energy, real estate, and health and education infrastructure,” he added.Private capital had a role in creating social spaces, and as large pools of capital competed to be deployed into these in low yield environments, there was an opportunity for governments to embark on the infrastructure projects needed for liveable cities.last_img read more

Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan not pleased with Miami Heat ‘road game’ at Staples Center

first_img“It would have been nice to get two victories in Miami this year.”The Clippers defeated the Heat 110-93 on Nov. 20 in a game actually played at Miami.So, Jordan was asked, how much did that bother him to hear all those people rooting on the enemy and rejoicing in the Miami victory?“I mean, like I said, it was a road game today,” said Jordan, obviously unhappy with what he heard. “It was tough.”Off game for DJ Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Don’t think the Clippers didn’t notice how many fans in attendance Sunday at Staples Center were cheering for the Miami Heat.At times it seemed like Miami was the home team, especially at the end when it was clear the Heat were on their way to a 104-90 victory.Afterward, Clippers center DeAndre Jordan voiced his displeasure with some sarcastic comments.“The past two games we had at home,” Jordan said of wins over the Lakers on Wednesday and Dallas Mavericks on Saturday. “And then today when we played on the road in Miami, it was tough. We tried to come out today to get a road win, it just didn’t happen.center_img Jordan entered Sunday’s game averaging a league-leading 13.7 rebounds. But he had only six against Miami, and that was one reason why the Clippers (25-13) were outrebounded by a 46-27 count, 15-6 on the offensive boards.Jordan had been on a tear, averaging 15.7 rebounds in December.“I mean, you know, it’s the NBA,” said Jordan, whose team plays at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Portland (30-8). “You’re going to have ups and downs throughout the season. But it’s one of those games; you’ve gotta be able to bounce back.”The loss was more than an off game for Jordan, coach Doc Rivers said.“Not just DJ,” Rivers said, “I thought as a group we really lacked energy. I thought especially from mid-second quarter on, I never thought we could get it going. It felt like you could see it.“I almost tore my rotator cuff (waving his arm) trying to get our guys to go and it was one of those days where we just didn’t have it. But I still think you’ve gotta give Miami credit. They came with a purpose. You can see they needed a win and that’s how they played.”The Heat entered having lost five of six.Griffin’s arraignmentRichard Schonfeld, an attorney representing Blake Griffin, on Monday appeared in court in Las Vegas and was given until Feb. 17 to work out a settlement on a complaint in which Griffin is accused of grabbing Daniel Schuman, taking his cell phone and slapping him after he took pictures of Griffin and some teammates, the Associated Press reported.Griffin was charged with misdemeanor battery for the incident that took place Oct. 19 at Tao nightclub inside the Venetian on the Las Vegas strip. Schonfeld said he has turned over results of his investigation to prosecutors, and District Attorney Steve Wolfson said he will consider it all, according to the report.BREAKOUTPortland, which will host the Clippers at 7:30 Wednesday night, is 30-8 and resides in second in the Western Conference standings, a game behind Golden State (29-5).last_img read more
