Rice Warner’s extensive superannuants database and related research enables us to help benchmark superannuation funds, whether products, fees, investments, insurance, service operations or costs and expenses.
Unique data, research & insight
Efficiency gains for superannuation fund administrators and their customers.
With an aging population and the gradual retirement of the Baby Boomers, the superannuation industry is rapidly developing products and services to maintain members to and through retirement.
Rice Warner is at the forefront of helping superannuation funds develop a strategic retirement framework, and products aligned to this framework, to support members in retirement.
Member statement benefit projections are an effective way to engage members to think about their superannuation in practical terms and help to encourage members to take action to improve the projected retirement benefits. Rice Warner prepares these projections for a range of funds, each calling upon our deep experience in the provision of financial tools, calculators and advice software, to provide funds with peace of mind that their benefit projections are accurate and compliant with regulatory requirements. We also provide actuarial accreditation for a variety of funds who have performed these calculations in-house or have developed their own tools and processes to perform the projections.
Rice Warner’s heritage is as a firm of consulting actuaries. Our superannuation actuarial services cover financial modelling, benefit projections, independent insurance in superannuation pricing review and investment analytics as well as prescribed actuarial work for defined benefit superannuation funds.
Rice Warner has built a reputation for providing fact-based guidance to superannuation industry participants backed by informed opinion and thought leadership. Our unique insights, supported by our rich databases and research, help clients develop effective commercial and operational strategies.
