KPMG's submission commended the Productivity Commission for the depth of analysis undertaken and supported a number of the recommendations contained within the Stage 3 Draft Report.

KPMG is supportive of measures that assist in:

  • the removal of underperforming funds from the superannuation system
  • the use of a broad range of measures to assess the performance of superannuation funds
  • better disclosure of superannuation fund data to assist members with fund comparisons and
  • the targeting of insurance products aligned with that proposed within the Insurance and Super Working Group paper.

However, concerns were raised in relation to the impact of some of the recommendations on the structural nature of the superannuation system.
