The future of a number key corporate superannuation mandates will be in the balance on Monday evening when the Government makes public the final report of the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry.
Money Management has learned that a number of corporate superannuation funds have asked major consultancies to examine their options in the event that their current providers are named and shamed in the final report of the Commissioner, Kenneth Hayne.
The contingency planning comes against the background of a number of corporate funds last year moving to change providers in the wake of revelations at the Royal Commission, particularly those concerning AMP Limited.
AMP last year lost the corporate superannuation mandates of Australia Post and Anglican National Super, but managed to retain most of its other corporate superannuation business.
Money Management understands that the contingency planning being undertaken by corporate superannuation clients extends beyond AMP clients with those of IOOF Limited, BT and others also contemplating their options.
The Royal Commission’s final report will be made public after the close of trade on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) on Monday.
