Aimed at addressing the two key themes of ‘Superannuation and the economy’, and ‘Australians over 60’, the $9m Superannuation Research Cluster Program has been built around a $3m Flagship Cluster Fund grant from CSIRO, and $3m in in-kind research contributions from the university partners led by Monash University. A further $3m in funding has been provided by leading industry stakeholders and research partners ANZ, BT, Cbus, Colonial First State, Challenger, Mercer, AMP Capital and Vanguard Investments.
By the completion of the Cluster in March 2017, researchers will have produced around 45 working papers addressing the two superannuation themes indicated above. This body of research will deliver long-term benefits to retirees, the superannuation industry, policy makers and the Australian economy as a whole.
