Unique data, research & insight

Efficiency gains for superannuation fund administrators and their customers.

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.

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.

Our actuarial experience and PHOEBE API provide superannuation funds with benefit projections for individual members utilising either the ASIC Class Order or tailored projections using the superannuation funds’ own assumptions.

Rice Warner provides cost effective and compliant solutions to help superannuation funds deliver engaging and personalised projections relevant to meet their members’ unique needs.

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.

Modelled and regularly maintained by our actuaries, PHOEBE has an API that provides access to a wide range of complex mathematical functions and services. It solves common challenges faced by our clients across the financial services industry. The functions provide actuarially certified, compliant and accurate calculations across the full spectrum of financial advice for members or customers.

The PHOEBE API has been implemented for a range of clients, including banks, insurers, superannuation funds, financial planning groups, wealth management organisations and industry bodies.

PHOEBE provides clients with peace of mind that, by using a centralised source of calculations, they will always provide their members and customers with up-to-date, consistent, compliant and accurate information.
