In this commentary we review the 2013 financial year, provide performance tables for FYM’s core model portfolios and highlight the key market drivers at work and how we believe portfolios should be positioned for the year ahead.
Government Announces Superannuation Reforms

Reforms to Australia’s superannuation system have been announced that will be tabled before Parliament if the current Government is re-elected.

These reforms are outlined in joint press releases issued by Wayne Swan and Bill Shorten, titled:

·         Reforms to make the superannuation system fairer
·         Tax Treatment of Earnings on Superannuation Assets Supporting Income Streams
·         Council of Superannuation Custodians Charter of Superannuation Adequacy and Sustainability

Legislation to implement these proposals will not be tabled before Parliament until after the election in September and will require the return of the current Government.
If legislated as announced, the proposals will have implications for the superannuation system in Australia and will impact people in both the accumulation and pension phase.

Here is an article that summarises the key reforms.
