Royal Commission Round 5 – Super Funds in the Spotlight

FSU Submission Highlights Financial Institutions’ Obligations to Workers and Communities

The previous round examined financial services in regional and remote communities, including farming finance and interactions between Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people and financial services entities.

In the FSU’s submissions in response to those hearings, we highlighted the importance of culture within financial services entities in achieving good customer outcomes. We also focused on the impact of service reduction, including how branch closures impact people in regional and remote areas.

Banking is an essential service, and customers rely on being able to access ethical, local services.

The Finance Sector Union is calling on all financial services entities to properly consult with workers and communities about how to deliver local services that meet the needs of their customers.

Round 5 Has Commenced

The new round of hearings, starting today, will look at both Industry and Retail Super Funds. Issues examined are expected to include selling practices, relationships with financial advisers, structural and governance practices, and the regulation of the sector.

As always, your FSU is standing up for finance workers throughout this process.
