Professor Mervyn King chairs a panel which includes:

  • Sally Loane – CEO, Financial Services Council
  • David Dixon – Chief Investment Officer, Colonial First State Global Asset Management
  • David Atkin – CEO, CBUS
  • Michael Dundon – CEO, VicSuper.

Key points

  • Assessing a company’s business model, longer term objectives and ability to create/sustain value.
  • FSC’s Stewardship Code which focuses on stewardship over asset managers and investors’ own internal governance practices.
  • Asset managers tend to lobby companies where they have concerns, but also take direct action.
  • Asia Region Fund Passport – Australia is the only country involved with no Stewardship Code – which could impact retail investment flows.
  • The Stewardship Code is important to industry funds, as many take investment management in house.
