Looking for a ‘lost’ life insurance policy? Trying to find lost life insurance policies can be a headache for people at a time when you don’t need more stress. The Financial Services Council (FSC) is able to assist you in finding a ‘lost’ life insurance policy by contacting our life insurance members and asking them to check their records and contact you if they have a policy or other relevant information. Unfortunately, we are unable to assist with superannuation or general insurance enquiries. For superannuation see below and for general insurance (home, contents, boats, motor cars etc) contact the Insurance Council of Australia on General enquiries: 02 9253 5100 or 1300 728 228 from 8:30am to 5pm Monday to Friday. For us to help you, please copy the text below into an email (including the 8 questions PLUS consent wording), fill in the blanks and email it to us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I understand that the life insurer may have to confirm that I am entitled to the information sought, including whether I am the person insured, a beneficiary, executor, trustee or guardian of the insured person. OTHER INFORMATION YOU MAY BE SEEKING If your enquiry needs to include superannuation or insurance within superannuation Contact the last-known employer The FSC cannot facilitate this type of search. We suggest that you contact the last known employer and ask them which superannuation fund and which insurer these products may have been administered by.  You should then contact the superannuation fund directly. Search the Australian Tax Office (ATO) website When you can show the Australian Tax Office that you are entitled to the information (again by provision of documentation) it should be able to provide you with the person’s tax file number (TFN) which will enable you to search for unclaimed super on the unclaimed super registers page here. There’s also ATO-held super money and you can search here. If you already have the TFN of the policy holder you can go straight to the link and search. . If you’re affected by the Australian bushfires, your Life Insurer may have relief assistance for you and your loved ones.

5. Get Involved - Further Gender Diversity Resources 5.1 Future IM/Pact Ambassador The FSC is proud to announce that it is an ambassador for the Future IM/Pact industry initiative aimed at attracting more diverse talent into the investment teams of Australia’s leading super funds and fund managers. We know that our ability to build high performing teams depends on attracting and valuing diverse talent who bring different perspectives. Our challenge is the majority of our teams remain very Anglo-Celtic and male-dominated. When we look to hire people for junior analyst positions - our entry-level jobs - the vast majority of candidates are men. We’re determined to change that reality. How? We want to help Australia’s best and brightest problem solvers from diverse backgrounds consider how they can impact the world as an investor. Insights and opportunities to get a foot in the door will also be provided. Our initial focus is on reaching women because their perspectives are most under-represented in our teams. How can you support and enhance the initiative? Achieving the goal depends on growing the initiative's reach and we need the support of industry bodies, universities and professional networks to help share the word.

Enhance your career with CIMA® certificationAll individuals in the financial services industry are increasingly being challenged to continue their education and grow their expertise... not just financial advisers! Certified Investment Management Analyst® (CIMA) certification is the peak, international, technical portfolio construction certification program for anyone involved in any aspect of constructing multi-manager portfolios – including sales and marketing professionals from funds management and superannuation firms. It offers an unrivalled opportunity to formally equip yourself with the knowledge, skill and expertise needed to build better quality multi-manager investment portfolios – and, therefore, to help practitioners do so. With practitioners under increasing time pressure as they juggle the demands of business, clients, family and now (for most), a heavy FASEA educational load for years to come, being a Certified Investment Management Analyst® will distinguish you as someone who can genuinely understand and help them with the challenges they face in a key aspect of their role. This seminar will help you understand how being a Certified Investment Management Analyst will enhance your career opportunities – and why you should show the lead with CIMA certification!
