The corporate regulator has announced it is taking NAB entities NULIS and MLC Nominees to the Federal Court for charging superannuation members for services that were not provided.

"ASIC alleges that NULIS and MLC Nominees (as the current and former superannuation trustee of NAB) misled members of MLC MasterKey Super products," the statement said.
