Big life insurers TAL, CommInsure, AMP and ClearView has been slated to appear at the next round of hearings of the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry starting in Melbourne on 10 September.

The Royal Commission announced the appearance of the big insurers alongside industry superannuation fund REST and Freedom Insurance.

In the general insurance arena, the Royal Commission has named AAI (Suncorp), Allianz, IAG and Youi as being up for examination while, where regulation is concerned, it has named the Financial Services Council (FSC), the Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) and the Code Governance Committee.

This pathetic RC needs to be reaaligned with facts that the inept biased regulator ASIC failed to provide around ISA and their insurance commission deals that detrimentally affected members benefits to the benefit of the ISA funds staff, directors and unions.

How can the stooges running the RC pretend they're anything but biased themselves?
