A super fund you can trust: recent Royal Commission report substantiates the industry super funds model

posted on 28.02.2019

The Royal Commission into Banking and Financial Services presented its report to the government on 4 February.

Among other things, it exposed shocking profit-taking practices in the retail – or bank-owned sector – of the superannuation industry.

These findings again highlighted the superiority of the industry superannuation model, which has members’ best interests, rather than corporate best interests, at its heart.

As an industry super fund, REI Super doesn’t have shareholders to whom we pay dividends.

We exist solely to provide benefits and services to you, our members. Our ONLY role is to serve our members’ best interests.

In other words, we don’t have shareholders we need to answer to and therefore we don’t take investment profits from members for shareholders.
