VicSuper recognised for responsible investment
The Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) has released its Super Fund Responsible Investment Benchmark Report 2018. The Super Fund Responsible Investment Benchmark Report 2018 presents the results of a survey of Australia’s 53 largest superannuation funds – accounting for $1.4 trillion in assets under management.
VicSuper was recognised in the report as being one of thirteen leading funds that demonstrate a comprehensive responsible investment approach and disclosures.
The report highlights the growing commitment of leading super funds to taking a stronger stewardship approach with the assets they’re managing on behalf of Australians, driven by both a desire to manage critical investment risks, and also to respond to the growing demand for responsible and ethical investments by Australians.
VicSuper believes that generating long-term value for our members requires a fundamental commitment to investing responsibly. What’s more, as a long term investor, we also have a vested interest in the sustainability of the global economy. Ultimately, if our members’ retirement savings are to prosper and grow, the economy, society and the environment need to be healthy and productive.
