The Future Fund has been recognised in AsianInvestor’s 2018 Institutional Excellence Awards.

In the Investment Capabilities category, AsianInvestor noted ‘the Future Fund’s efforts over the past two years to focus on financial technology as a means of securing better investment returns was particularly worthy of notice, in addition to its ongoing commitment to building diversified investments and to including environmental, social and governance considerations into its investing efforts.’

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

’The Future Fund invests for the benefit of future generations of Australians.  Everything we do is aligned to achieving our purpose.  Every extra dollar of value that we add to the funds we manage will have a real impact on future generations of Australians.’

Mr David Neal, Chief Executive Officer of the Future Fund Management Agency, said:

‘We are pleased to be recognised by AsianInvestor for the work we are undertaking to maximise value through the use of technology and for the strength of our investment process.

‘The scale and complexity of our task has grown over the years.  That is why improving our technology is important.  Building comprehensive data and analytics capability will give us more insight into our portfolio exposures, transforming data into insights and helping us to generate strong returns and manage risk.

‘We have produced strong returns and over $88bn for the Australian Government since we started and we are determined to continue to improve our knowledge, insights and processes so we can sustain that level of performance in the decades ahead.

‘Thank you to AsianInvestor for this award and to all those who have contributed to this success.’
