AER invites expressions of interest to join its investor reference group

To assist in the AER’s review of our rate of return guideline, we encourage interested investors to participate in our planned investor reference group (IRG).

Our rate of return guideline (Guideline) sets out the approach by which we will estimate the rate of return, and comprises the return on debt and the return on equity, as well as the value of imputation credits.

Estimation of the rate of return is complex, and the rate of return is a significant driver of regulated revenue. 

Role of the IRG

We see an IRG as a useful channel for AER staff to understand the priorities of institutional investors and the characteristics of our processes that are important to capital providers. It is also an opportunity for interested investors to engage with AER staff.

Please contact us at if you are interested in joining the IRG during the course of the review.
