Matthew Ross of Goldman Sachs estimates that up to $44bn could be withdrawn from superannuation funds by people who have been financially hit by the pandemic, compared with the federal government’s forecast of $27bn. The early access scheme may result in liquidity issues for some super funds, which could in turn be forced to reduce their exposure to shares. Ross says this could potentially reduce the benchmark S&P/ASX 200’s market capitalisation by around 0.45 per cent.
