I can guarantee there are no intra-fund advisers at industry super funds getting $40k bonuses. There may have been comprehensive FPs getting bonuses of that amount but the fees are coming directly from the client and not the admin fee and they would have to have been working a lot of overtime and bringing in a high level of advice fees to get anywhere near what the banks were paying in bonuses. Remember industry super funds are fee for service and always have been. Intra fund advice is just a simple advice service provided by the fund through the admin fee and not comprehensive advice so I don't know why FPs would be concerned about this.
