ASIC Resources

The Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) has some excellent investing and superannuation resources, and this ASIC section is dedicated to their content.

The material is selected by Cuffelinks and while ASIC is comfortable that this content be shared, it is not formally endorsing Cuffelinks or our selection.

ASIC will provide articles throughout the year exclusively for Cuffelinks readers, and in turn, we will highlight new material such as research papers, regulatory announcements, calculators and other tools developed by ASIC.

The ASIC material selected by Cuffelinks is divided into three sections on this page:

  1. Calculators, featuring a retirement planner, superannuation calculator and optimiser, compound interest, financial adviser register and reverse mortgage calculator.
  2. Resources on investing, planning and retirement to help plan for a better future.
  3. Research articles and speeches, some written exclusively for Cuffelinks.
