How Should Superannuation Funds Meet Objectives?
November 15, 2012 / Shangri-La Hotel / Sydney, Australia
While Australia represents roughly 3% of the global economy, Australian investors are all too aware of the propensity to invest at home. This eagerness to invest in the local economy, however -- in a concentrated market -- comes at a price. The goal of aiCIO’s second annual CIO Summit Sydney is to help chief investment officers and other senior investment professionals at pension funds, endowments & foundations, and sovereign wealth funds meet their objectives amid three key problems: 1) A low-return environment, 2) Home-country bias/emerging market allocations, and 3) FX issues.
