AIST Governance Code
AIST’s Governance Code has been developed to promote continuous improvement in governance practices and aims to cement profit-to-member funds as the leading superannuation sector. The principles-based Code goes beyond current regulatory requirements and creates a new standard of governance best practice in Australia.
The Energy Super Board adopted the Code and the Code Complaince Statement has been prepared to summarise the Trustee’s approach to complying with the Code, specifically details of its compliance with the Code for the period 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019.
Unit Pricing Error Resolution
Where the Trustee determines that current members have been adversely impacted, we shall seek to return the member to their corrected position.
Payments to a former Member and beneficiaries of less than $20 will not normally be made. This threshold is generally consistent with regulatory practice guidelines and industry standards.
