MELBOURNE SPEAKER SERIES: Lunch with David Neal, CEO Future Fund Management Agency
Friday, 29th March @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm$105 – $145.00
FEI is thrilled to be welcoming David Neal, CEO of the Future Fund Management Agency to kick off our Melbourne Speaker Series in 2019.
As Australia’s sovereign wealth fund, the Future Fund invests for the benefit of future generations of Australians. The organisation was established in 2006 to strengthen the Australian Government’s long-term financial position and today invests $180 billion across a number of public asset funds including the Future Fund itself, the Medical Research Future Fund, the DisabilityCare Australia Fund, two Nation-building Funds and, most recently, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Land and Sea Future Fund.
So, what is it like to shepherd investment on this scale, with the national interest at stake? Join us to hear from David about his complex and evolving role, and the skills and experiences he draws on as an investment leader.
The Future Fund has been focused over the past two years on embracing financial technology and building a comprehensive data and analytics capability to identify exposures and transform data into insights that help generate strong returns and manage risk.
We welcome David’s insight into the Fund’s successes, the challenges of investing for future generations, where the Future Fund sees opportunity and the global outlook as markets become more complex and volatile.
The Future Fund is a unique and important organisation in Australia and we’re pleased to bring our members and non-members this rare inside perspective through the eyes of its CEO.
