All Hands on Deck: The Case for Super Annuation Funds, Big and Small

Wednesday, May 3, 2023
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM PDT
Beverly Hilton - Whittier

Underpinned by a robust system of compulsory pension savings, the Australian pension sector is forecasted to triple from A$3.3 trillion (US$2.2 trillion) of funds under management to A $9 trillion over the next 20 years. Since the industry’s inception in 1992, Australian superannuations have led the global push for sustainable financing and ESG-focused investment strategies. Where do they now see innovations in climate risk mitigation? And after a few years of intensive consolidations, what are the challenges to achieving scale and efficiency during post-merger integration? How big is too big? What distinguishes those which go on to flourish from their peers? How are Super Funds staying invested, domestically or abroad, under a new wave of regulations to tackle the current low-return environment? Join this panel featuring guardians of Australia’s largest superannuation funds to find out.
