Superannuation is a key component of the overall benefit package offered to employees. Our consulting team can provide assistance in the following areas:
Default fund reviews
WTW helps employers review their default fund superannuation provider by benchmarking against other providers or via a full RFP service, considering benefit design, insurance design, investment performance, member services and governance. We also help employers choose and transition to a new default fund.
Superannuation benefit benchmarking and harmonisation
How does the level of superannuation provided to your employees compare to general or specific industry groups? We can help you determine how your insurance design, additional contributions, any subsidisation of fees and costs, or your application of the SG maximum contributions base compare. We also assist in designing and costing the harmonisation of legacy benefits for different cohorts of employees across a range of benefits.
Defined benefit consulting
We can help employers with all DB matters:
- superannuation benefit design
- calculation of members’ benefits
- valuing DB liabilities
- developing funding and risk management strategies
- de-risking strategies
- expert actuarial advice (e.g. provision of expert witness reports for arbitration or litigation purposes).
Superannuation financial reporting

We can also help employers with the disclosures required for executives under accounting standard AASB 124.
Long service leave valuations
