Asian Investor magazine has recognised the Future Fund in the sovereign wealth fund category of its 2016 institutional excellence awards.

The Chairman of the Future Fund Board of Guardians, Hon Peter Costello AC, said:

“The Future Fund invests public money on behalf of all Australians. We are proud of this award which reflects dedication by the Board, management and staff over the last 10 years and the application of a prudent and patient approach to investing. I’d like to thank all those who have contributed to this success.”

Richard Morrow, Editor of Asian Investor, said:

“We felt that the ongoing professionalism of the Future Fund’s asset allocation and its willingness to consider risk and innovation in a world of declining yields merited recognition. The Future Fund is undoubtedly one of the leading sovereign wealth funds in the region and globally and shows a sustained commitment to governance and investment excellence.”
