AMP, CFS, BTFG and MLC form SuperStream alliance

Australia's biggest wealth managers and super admin providers have formed an alliance to support the delivery of SuperStream.

Seven leading financial services groups have created an alliance to help the federal government deliver its SuperStream initiatives and improve services to members.

The Affiliation of Superannuation Practitioners (ASP), which includes AMP, Colonial First State, BT Financial Group, MLC, Pillar, Superpartners and AAS, is focused on finding efficiencies that could be passed onto members, an ASP statement said.

"The first priority for the ASP is the design of an efficient and secure electronic rollover process between superannuation providers, a task the group has committed to supporting by September 2011," ASP spokesperson Nigel McCammon said.

"As part of this project, the group is seeking to eliminate paper forms and cheques from the superannuation funds transfer process."

He said the Cooper Review and the subsequent SuperStream objectives had driven an increased focus on operational issues within the super industry.

"The ASP believes the most appropriate way to deliver the required improvements to the government, industry and members is through industry collaboration," he said.

"A different approach would likely result in a number of disparate third party solutions, which will increase costs and negate the efficiency gains we are seeking to achieve."

Upon completion of the initial project, the ASP will continue to work together to scope other projects with the potential to deliver value to members and the industry and which also supported the government's SuperStream objectives, ASP joint spokesperson Hans van Daatselaar said.

"The superannuation industry continues to evolve," Van Daatselaar said.
