Investment management is the process of allocating capital (ie money) into different assets that deliver a financial return for end-investors while funding the activity that fuels our economic prosperity.
In Australia, the majority of end-investors are ordinary working Australians whose superannuation contributions are pooled and then invested into assets such as shares, property, bonds, infrastructure (like roads or renewable energy power stations), cash or directly into businesses.
The majority of investing is done by:
Super funds (industry and retail)
Fund managers (boutique, local, global)
Endowments, not-for-profits and family offices
The world’s income for retirement and our financial well-being depends on the investment decisions made by investment teams the world over.
And that’s just the start of it.
Investing is the lifeblood that underpins human progress. Scientific inventions, food supply, renewable energy, new roads and technology developments are just a fraction of what’s made possible through the investment process.
