ORFR and member equity

It is based on our work helping clients to establish their risk frameworks and ORFR reserves.

The Stronger Super changes introduced a number of Prudential Standards for the superannuation industry. One of those superannuation prudential standards (SPS 114) introduced an Operational Risk Financial Requirement (ORFR) for super funds to be established over a three year period from 1 July 2013. The ORFR is intended to be a reserve to meet the cost of potential future operational losses such as administration errors, fraud events or legal claims against the fund due to inadequate process.
