The creators of the principals behind Stronger Super regulation are to publicly assess how far the industry and the regulator have progressed in enacting their vision.

Both Jeremy Cooper and Paul Costello will be talking in Sydney and Melbourne at the Investment Management Consultants Association in Sydney on November 26 and in Melbourne on November 28.

They will be on a panel with Rosemary Vilgan, chief executive of QSuper, and Danielle Press, chief executive of EquipSuper and Scott Tully, head of investment services, Colonial First State.

The discussion will cover whether members are getting value for money under MySuper and to what extent strategies are being tailored for them.

Jeff Rogers, chair of the IMCA conference committee and chief investment officer of IPAC, said the session would also explore how the industry should tackle the areas covered in the Cooper Review, but not tackled in Stronger Super legislation, such as retirement income streams.

Rogers speculated that much of the market was still waiting for the government to take the lead by creating legislation that would indicate the retirement products they should create. He added that more need to be done in creating products that guarantee or predict income streams.

The conference is open to trustees of superannuation funds.
