NZ Super Fund named in Bretton Woods II study of most responsible asset allocators
POSTED ON: 19 October 2017
The NZ Super Fund has been named as one of the world's most responsible sovereign wealth funds in a ground-breaking new study released by the Bretton Woods II programme. The initiative, developed in partnership with the Global Development Incubator, Dalberg and the Fletcher School at Tufts, analysed over 120 funds to ultimately identify 25 sovereign wealth funds and government pension funds that set a global standard for leadership. The initiative provides the first comprehensive analysis of how the world's largest long-term investors are developing sophisticated new strategies to manage social, governance and environmental risks.
Adrian Orr, CEO of the Fund and Chair of the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds (IFSWF) was quoted in the release:
"For stewards of long-term capital, like sovereign wealth and government pension funds, the question is not can they afford to invest responsibly but rather, can they afford not to? NZSF is proud to be a member of the BWII Leaders List: The 25 Most Responsible Asset Allocators. The initiative focuses attention on the critical issue of sustainability and helps sovereign wealth and government pension funds consider more than just financial metrics in the investment process. Doing so is essential to create value over the long-term."
