This course will give you insights into:
How super funds are operating in unchartered waters
While Hostplus CIO Sam Sicilia is deeply committed to protecting his members’ assets, he’s also sanguine about the fact that markets will always go up and down. What matters in super, he argues, is ensuring the best outcome possible over a member’s lifetime.01.
Darwinism in Super
What impact did the Royal Commission have on superannuation? According to Hostplus CIO Sam Sicilia, it demonstrated that you’ll come out on top if you keep client and member best interests paramount. But, as he explains, that doesn’t mean anyone can rest on their laurels.02.
How to invest a pile of money
What role do super funds have when it comes to combating climate change? If Hostplus CIO Sam Sicilia had his way, a significant one. But first, governments need to step up to the plate.03.
Turning an industry inside out
The Royal Commission laid bare many practices that led to misconduct within the financial services industry, but as Sunsuper CIO Ian Patrick explains in this video, if people and teams remain focused on their true purpose, it’s a lot easier to avoid future problems.
A different investment strategy
Sunsuper uses a mix of active and passive investments to achieve its return goals, but the decisions come down to where different mandates add value. In this video, CIO Ian Patrick explains how that process works.06.
When fund managers have to return money
As super funds grow, they often begin to develop a range of in-house and external investment arrangements. In this video, CBUS CIO Kristian Fok looks at how the fund’s mandate mix operates.07.
How are super funds referring advice leads?
As younger super savers begin their working lives, they enter the super space with different expectations to their forebears. In this video, CBUS CIO Kristian Fok looks at how his fund is addressing a new type of member engagement.08.
