"undertake a 12-month inquiry into the competitiveness and efficiency of Australia's superannuation system. This represents the third stage of the Commission's review of the competitiveness and efficiency of Australia's superannuation system".

It will be interesting to see if the Australian report finds similar issues to those found by the UK FCA report and if the recommendations are implemented as the new Federal election cycle approaches. .
