Warakirri and GBST partnership extends support to superannuation funds for tax-aware investing
Warakirri has extended its after-tax services partnership with global financial technology provider GBST, to support superannuation funds with their global equities benchmarks. Warakirri and GBST have worked together for over 10 years, providing after-tax services to the superannuation industry based on custom after-tax benchmarks for Australian equity portfolios.
This extended partnership will allow Warakirri clients to access after-tax services based on the global MSCI after-tax benchmarks index series which GBST has been providing to the broader Australian market since 2015.
With global equities an increasingly important asset class for superannuation funds and after-tax returns under scrutiny by members, trustees and the prudential regulator, this new service to Warakirri provides funds with a robust solution to measure the true after-tax performance of not only their domestic, but now global equity, portfolios.
Warakirri is a leading provider of after-tax reporting and performance analytics to superannuation funds and fund managers in Australia and has been benchmarking Australian equities portfolios on an after-tax basis since 2007.
GBST is the first globally accredited provider of MSCI Global Index custom after-tax benchmarks. MSCI indexes such as MSCI World, MSCI Emerging Markets, MSCI Asia and MSCI Europe are global benchmarks widely used by superannuation funds.
