Representative arrangements are widely employed in the governance of occupational pensionfunds, particularly in Australia where a sector of jointly employer/employee-sponsored ‘industryfunds’ was established during the 1980s. The jointly governed industry funds are privately ownedwealth-management businesses and have routinely outperformed the retirement-savings schemesrun by the large listed for-profit providers. Seeking to understand why these examples of labourist‘alternative organisations’ have outperformed more traditionally governed Australian wealthmanagementfirms is the main purpose of this article.
