Market Insights

It all begins with Insight

The Rice Warner advantage.

Rice Warner has a strategic team which is our own think-tank.  The team undertakes research and generates ideas for our public policy work, as well as providing specialist support for our consulting services.

We hold a number of comprehensive databases on superannuation funds, member activities, and pensioners.  We also hold material in diverse areas from wealth outside superannuation, life insurance sales through to a longitudinal distribution of Age Pensioners.  Some of our databases are unique and provide us with a comparative advantage in analysing market trends – enabling us to deliver – insight like no other.

This provides us with a core platform for our financial modelling, specialist research reports and our industry projections.  The databases are used for benchmarking, product comparisons, financial advice, market trends and analysis of member behaviour.


As Actuaries, complex financial modelling is at the heart of what we do and supports much of our strategic and policy work.  We have a variety of established models including:

  • Demographic projections models for the superannuation, personal investments and group insurance markets.
  • Models to project wealth, insurance and retirement savings for individuals using our calculation engine PHOEBE.
  • Tailored models built to solve client specific problems across a variety of problems in super, insurance and wealth.

Our Actuaries specialise in data analytics for superannuation funds.  Backed by knowledge of the market from our database of over 10 million superannuation members we assist superannuation fund executives, marketing and internal data analytics teams to enhance their fund by developing business intelligence tools, predictive models and customer segmentation.  We can also assist clients in developing their data analytics strategies and measuring outcomes from investments in analytics.

Rice Warner is at the forefront of the constantly evolving policy landscape for superannuation and life insurance.

Our close relationship with Government (including Treasury and the Productivity Commission) allows us to help our clients build credible, evidence-based submissions to help lobby for policy change, develop sound business strategies in the context of the policy change, or model the impact of policies on the market, businesses and customers.
