Change of the Trustee
We are pleased to advise that effective 15 December 2014, The Trust Company (Superannuation) Limited (TTCSL) assumed trusteeship of Managed Australian Retirement Fund (MARF). Like the previous trustee; CCSL Limited, TTCSL is a member company of the Diversa Group. The people involved with the management of MARF remain the same and as such this change will have no affect on your membership with MARF.

Insurance Changes
From 1 July 2014 the cost of Insurance cover for most MARF members will increase
 
The cost of insurance continues to rise in Australia.  Although MARF has a good claims history, the Australian insurance industry in general has experienced increased claim rates.  Higher unemployment also means more people claim.  In addition, frequent communications about insurance have improved people's awareness of their cover and entitlements.
 
The new increased premium is a result of a recent review carried out by our insurance provider AIA Australia Limited.  MARF has negotiated the best possible outcome given the current pressure on the industry.
 
For more information please refer to the Insurance Premiums - 2014 Fact Sheet in our Forms and Publications section.
