At UniSuper, our investment team manages some of your investments in-house where we have internal investment management capabilities and where we think external investment managers have little comparative advantage. Where we do so, we’re subject to the control of the Investment Committee and Board.
Our internal investment management capabilities
Our investment team manages selected investment strategies within the following asset classes in-house:
- Australian shares
- International shares
- Cash and fixed interest, and
Managing these internally allows us to target strategies where we can leverage our internal knowledge and skills and, importantly, add value and generate meaningful cost savings for our members.
We believe managing some investment strategies in-house complements the Fund’s external manager selection activities. Indeed, the relationships we develop and knowledge we gain as part of managing several strategies internally allows us to make more informed decisions about our external managers and better manage the Fund's assets more broadly. It also gives us scope to be more directly and proactively involved with environmental, social and corporate governance-related issues.
