This paper presents the results of the RIM Task Force’s study of private sector superannuation fund assets and contributions. The paper outlines the distribution of superannuation assets and contributions categorised by gender, age and salary level of fund members. The paper also compares the average levels of assets and contributions in different types of fund. Such information is not available from official statistical sources. RIM will use this information as the starting point for its models of the accumulation of superannuation assets over the next 50 years.
