Industry Super Australia chairman Peter Collins says the banking royal commission’s revelations regarding retail superannuation funds warrant the separation of super from banking. Collins says those who thought that industry super funds might fare badly under the commission’s scrutiny got it wrong. He says the commission has shown that the industry funds sector was right to run its controversial "fox and henhouse" advertising campaign, which claimed that the $600 billion pool of default savings would be at risk if the government allowed the banks to access it.
