We are seeking investment consultancy services, with expertise in assessing global best-practice investment approaches, to deliver a one in five-year performance review of how effectively and efficiently the Government Superannuation Fund Authority (the Authority) is performing its functions under the Government Superannuation Fund Act 1956 (the Act).
This review addresses the legislative requirements that the reviewer form an opinion about the appropriateness and compliance with the Authority’s statements of investment policies, standards and procedures (SIPSPs), as well as an opinion about the investment performance of the Government Superannuation Fund (the Fund). The reviewer is also asked to complete a ‘deeper dive’ evaluating the Authority’s ethical investment framework in the context of international best practice standards, which should include a consideration of the Authority’s approach to considering, and reporting on, climate change as part of the framework.
Expertise will be required across a broad range of investment management activities to enable an assessment of best-practice portfolio management, including: portfolio construction; investment manager selection; asset allocation techniques; ethical/responsible investment processes. The Reviewer will also require appropriate quantitative tools/techniques to undertake the performance assessment component of the review.
