The Investor’s view:Adrian Orr, CEO New Zealand Superannuation Fund

Adrian Orr, Chairman of the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds; Chief Executive Officer, New Zealand Superannuation Fund

In April 2016, The Investment Institute spoke to Adrian Orr, Chairman of the International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds and the chief executive officer, New Zealand Superannuation Fund, about the challenges of allocating capital for the long term. They discussed stakeholder engagement, counter-cyclical investment strategies and how the relationships between investors and their managers are changing. They also discussed the opportunities presented to long-term investors by the current global imperative for sustainable development and the difficulties sovereign wealth funds face in an era of low oil prices, and how these might affect how they allocate capital.


Resilience in an age of uncertainty

General risks

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. The value of investments, and any income generated from them, can go down as well as up; losses may be made.

Specific risks

Equity investment: Value of equities (e.g. shares) and equity-related investments may vary according to company profits and future prospects as well as more general market factors. In the event of a company default (e.g. bankruptcy), the owners of their equity rank last in terms of any financial payment from that company.
