JUNE KEY POINTS
TOTAL MANAGED FUNDS INDUSTRY
CONSOLIDATED ASSETS OF MANAGED FUNDS INSTITUTIONS
CROSS INVESTED ASSETS
There have been revisions as a result of the receipt of revised administrative data, survey data and due to the inclusion of new survey respondents.
As the ABS has previously advised, the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) introduced an enhanced set of reporting forms for Registrable Superannuation Entities (RSEs) from September quarter 2013. A number of data items provided from the new APRA collections significantly deviate from the previous ones, both in concept and definition. Where the impact on an affected series could not be estimated, the ABS has been moving forward the affected series using cautiously chosen indicators derived from other ABS collections that have a very strong historical correlation to these series. This methodology will continue to be applied until additional superannuation data collection requirements can be implemented by APRA which satisfy the conceptual and definitional requirements of the ABS. Users are advised to continue exercising caution when using superannuation data in this publication.
REVISIONS TO CASH MANAGEMENT TRUSTS
This issue includes revisions to the assets and liabilities of cash management trusts from September quarter 2005 to March quarter 2015 as a result of the inclusion of a number of new units (survey respondents). The size of the revision to total assets in March quarter 2015 is $7.3b. This revision is the result of work undertaken to improve coverage of the cash management trusts institution. Revisions have been applied to all relevant financial instruments in this institution as well as the aggregate measures of the managed funds institutions and managed funds industry in tables 1 and 2.
