What is the Asgard and BT Super Insurance Class Action about?

Shine Lawyers has launched a class action against BT Funds Management Ltd (BT), Westpac Securities Administration Limited (WSAL) and Westpac Life Insurance Services Limited (now TAL Life Insurance Services Limited) on behalf of Asgard and BT superannuation fund members who may have been wrongfully overcharged for their insurance. 

It is alleged that between October 2017 and April 2023, BT and WSAL did not act in the best interests of their members when obtaining group insurance policies. 

It appears, despite there being evidence of equivalent or substantially better policies available through other insurers for cheaper premiums, BT and WSAL chose to obtain these policies from one related party - Westpac Life Insurance Services Limited - meaning members of their superannuation funds seem to have paid unreasonably higher premiums. 

We understand that hundreds of thousands of BT and WSAL superannuation members have had their superannuation eroded as a result of BT and WSAL’s alleged misconduct.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a class action?

When Governments, large companies or institutions do the wrong thing and people are harmed or suffer loss as a result, an individual can have little to no means of bringing a legal claim.

Class actions are an important mechanism within Australia’s legal system that allow large groups of people to come together to pursue a claim collectively.

For a class action to take place, there are three criteria that need to be met:

  1. There must be 7 or more people that have claims against the same defendant; and

  2. The claims relate to the same or similar circumstances; and

  3. The claim must relate to at least one common issue of law or fact.

How long do class actions take to resolve?

It can take up to several years for a class action to resolve. The time taken from case commencement through to resolution and settlement administration depends on the particular case, and the nature of the claim.
