Mind the Gap: Can Australia avert a looming pension crisis?

When thousands of workers were furloughed in the early stages of the COVID pandemic, it became clear that many Australians were woefully unprepared to endure short-term cash crunches or interruptions to their earnings capability. Despite having one of the most well-funded pension systems in the world, Australia continues to slide in the annual Mercer Global Pension Index as contribution rates decline and concerns on the ability to generate strong income in retirement increase.

The Haynes Commission recommendations have contributed to a growing ‘advice gap’ that is leaving many Australians unable to obtain much needed ‘full service’ financial advice. A recent raft of technology-enabled firms is seeking to address some of these challenges, offering retail consumers access to low-cost planning tools via largely ‘self-service’ digital channels.

  • Will these services gain traction in the retail market? To what extent will they help close the pension gap, and will they prove sufficient?
  • Can the same toolset be leveraged to reduce the service costs and provide differentiation in other market segments?
  • What other steps can the industry or the government take to ensure that all consumers have cost-effective access to holistic financial advice?
