Reporting Red Tape: Australia’s Superannuation Reporting Requirements

We recently conducted a survey of superannuation members. Admittedly, this survey was limited to a small sample size consisting of people the authors know and work with.
We asked the survey participants two questions:
Do you know the investments underlying your superannuation fund?
None of them did.
Are you particularly interested?
None of them were.
A small and selective survey but nevertheless a telling insight into the level of interest that the average
superannuation member has in their superannuation fund, or at least the assets held in the fund.
