What is the Standard in Risk Measurement
10 December 2012
Aongus O'Gorman and Tony Cahill

Introduction

In this perspective, Round Tower Solutions considers the Australian superannuation industry’s efforts to develop a standardised measure for communicating risk across investment options and funds. The intent of the initiative is to provide members of superannuation funds with tools to assess the inherent risk within investment options though more specifically to compare the risks across similar investment options provided by different funds.

We consider the framework established for risk measurement, the assumptions and methodologies proposed for assessing risk, whether the Guidelines truly provide an industry standard and our thoughts on what improvements could be made.
