Anne-Marie Corboy, chair of Australia’s largest corporate superannuation fund, talks to Investment Magazine about sustainability, the Retirement Income Review and the urgent need for policies that help disadvantaged women.

Q |With 30 years’ experience as a director and chair and a former chief executive of HESTA, what policies do you think Canberra should put in place to improve the retirement outcomes for women who are disadvantaged?

A |Women in Super have very sound policies in this area which they have been advocating for some time – and which I strongly support – including an increase in the superannuation guarantee, abolishing the $450 threshold and paying superannuation on parental leave. A further important issue being discussed more is the taper rate for access to the Age Pension, just another policy decision which has a major impact on women. This policy needs more discussion and reform. I would also like to see intra-fund advice expanded so that access to the Age Pension can form part of the advice in relation to superannuation balances.
