Public-offer superannuation fund

A public-offer superannuation fund is described by the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 as a superannuation entity that offers superannuation interests to the public, usually on a commercial basis. This type of fund is:

  • a regulated superannuation fund that is not a standard employer-sponsored fund;
  • a standard employer-sponsored fund that has some non-standard employer-sponsored members;
  • a standard employer-sponsored fund which has elected to become a public-offer fund; or
  • a superannuation fund which APRA has declared to be a public- offer fund.

Registrable superannuation entity (RSE)

An RSE is a regulated superannuation fund, an approved deposit fund or a pooled superannuation trust. It does not include self-managed superannuation funds.
