CEPAR research on topics as varied as rural migration in China, the impact of the government's superannuation rate increase, and the optimal home equity release product will be showcased this week at the 20th Annual Colloquium of Superannuation Researchers.

Nine CEPAR research staff will present at the conference, including CEPAR Partner Investigator Olivia S. Mitchell, from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

About 100 delegates are expected to attend the Colloquium, which is being hosted by the CPS Research Group​ at the University of New South Wales on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th July.

Former Senator and Minister for Superannuation and Corporate Law, Nick Sherry, will open the Colloquium, and will be followed by Jeremy Cooper from Challenger.

The annual Colloquium is an opportunity for superannuation and pension experts from around the world to share their research. This year the conference is hosting presenters from the United Kingdom, Italy, the United States, Japan, China, and New Zealand.

"The Colloquium has a strong tradition of attracting leading international experts and we are delighted to be part of the program," Professor Piggott said.
