ABSTRACT
The article reports that the role of superannuation fund members is limited in the management of superannuation fund balances in Australia which are rebuilding to levels not seen since before the global financial crisis started in 2007-08. As reported, if the trustee boards of superannuation funds determine that it is appropriate to contribute 6 million dollars a year towards a national television advertising campaign, fund members can neither question nor veto that decision.
