Inside Super 2 (UPDATE) – Direct-to-consumer: remaining relevant in the future of super distribution
In November we shared with you insights on remaining relevant in the new super distribution landscape. Our analysis showed that an increase in switching activity was largely benefiting two industry funds, who have seen record cash inflows mostly at the expense of the retail funds that came under intense scrutiny during the Royal Commission. Since then new APRA data shows that these two funds continue to win the vast majority of ‘switching FUM’ as demonstrated by net roll-ins excluding successor funds transfers (SFTs).
As the end of the year approaches, most executives are starting to turn their minds to the strategy and business planning process for FY2021. This year, APRA’s new regulations, which are set to commence on 1 January 2020, are expected to change the way many funds approach strategic and business planning. This article outlines how you can strengthen your strategy and planning process and key strategic artefacts to better align with best practice, SPS 515 requirements and stakeholder expectations.
In past decades, wholesale distribution channels – the industrial machinery – have been the key enabler of member account growth in industry super, while retail funds relied heavily on marketing through their advisor channels. However, in recent years, consumer choice coupled with policy changes place pressure on wholesale distribution channels. The challenge for many funds is to rapidly develop a more agile, direct-to-consumer distribution model that will allow them to remain relevant and succeed in this new environment.
