Our investment managers

Investment managers

AustralianSuper engages specialist investment management companies (referred to in the industry as investment managers or fund managers) to invest money in the different asset classes.

We take many factors into account when selecting investment managers, including:

  • Strength of the company, its management structure and ownership
  • Investment process used by the manager
  • Experience of its investment team
  • Track record
  • Whether the manager complements AustralianSuper’s other investment managers.

You can view a current list of AustralianSuper's investment managers below, as at 31 December 2013.
