Established in 2014, the Fund Operations Summit continued in 2019 as an independent, senior level forum focused on investment operations and outsourcing for key asset owners, insurers and asset managers. The agenda was geared towards chief operating and financial officers, heads of investment operations and related senior staff with an interest in Asset Owner or Asset Management relevant topics with over 160 professionals from Australia, Asia, Europe and North America in attendance. With many sessions focused on enhanced investment outcomes for Super Fund members it was not surprising that increased member engagement around ESG matters was also a prominent topic amongst Asset Owners and Managers alike.
A panel session considered ESG in the context of the Australian Superannuation industry. The panel comprised representatives from the investment consulting industry, two Responsible Investment fund managers and a super fund representative.
Some interesting observations:
With increased focus on Investment Governance, Due Diligence and ESG matters the topics at the Fund summit were extremely relevant not only to Castle Hall but also to the other attendees present. We would also like to thank publisher Fund Business for a well-organized event!
