Title: How does the Future Fund navigate an uncertain investment environment?

Abstract: The Future Fund Board of Guardians invests around AUD150bn of sovereign wealth across a number of Mandates on behalf of the Federal Government. While prospective economic and financial conditions are inherently uncertain, the current investment environment is particularly challenging to navigate.

In this context, the talk will provide an overview of the policy framework that has been developed by the management team to help the Board manage the Future Fund and Medical Research Future Fund portfolios with ‘acceptable but not excessive’ levels of risk as required by the Mandates.
