‘Not just a piece of Britain’: Down Under open for funds innovation

The new corporate collective investment vehicle (CCIV) could create new markets for Australian fund managers and bring international managers to Australian shores.

Tough lessons for super from abroad

Big super’s long march toward the future will be fruitful. But adopting the Canadian Model of pension management means coming to grips with the dual questions of legitimacy and governance. Consultant Peter F. Drucker’s assertion, in his 1976 book “The Unseen Revolution”, was that Marx was wrong; workers would not wind up owning the means…

A Labor win could return super to the fold

Labor can do little to change the past. But a win in May could usher in a new era of co-operation between big super and the government.

  • Alexis George cuts the Gordian Knot

    AMP Capital is effectively no more, sold off to a menagerie of domestic and international managers. But the challenge of turning AMP around has barely begun.

    ‘We can’t blow up our own mandate’: caution needed on transition  

    The recent surge in demand for fossil fuels doesn’t mean the green energy revolution is dead. But investors need to proceed with caution lest they lose their mandate to manage the transition.

    Sovereign wealth funds ditch EM in risk rethink

    The appetite for risk assets is turning negative, and the world’s largest investors are scurrying away from emerging market equities and debt amidst a rising tide of woe.
