External investment managers

We invest some of the Fund’s assets through external investment managers.

We choose these managers for their:

  • excellent investment insight and record of delivering good performance
  • strong focus, drive to succeed and commitment to working with us long term
  • high quality and stable teams, who are appropriately resourced and highly motivated
  • ability to monitor and assess environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and integrate these considerations into their investment analysis
  • adequate internal control, audit, insurance arrangements, disaster recovery and business continuity
  • competitive fees.

Once we appoint a manager, we agree to how they’ll invest money on our behalf. We then monitor this contract to ensure they comply. We also do ongoing reviews of each manager to ensure they maintain their competitive edge and are right for our investment structure.
