The Future Fund invests on behalf of the Australian Government.
In November 2021, journalists from the Guardian, Ben Butler and Ben Doherty, asked if the fund had invested in a weapons manufacturer that sold combat aircraft to the Myanmar military.
A spokesperson of the fund was quoted as saying:
In line with its mandate from government, the Future Fund has built a broadly diversified portfolio which includes passive investments through external investment managers in thousands of entities globally.
The fund has a well-established policy on environmental, social and governance matters and exclusions which takes account of its objectives, legislation, investment strategy, Australian law and the treaties that the Australian government has entered and ratified.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison recently assured Australians that, ‘… this National Plan enables governments to step back and Australians to step forward so they can look forward, and today, we are taking another step forward, a very important step forward.’
In a recent advertisement on Twitter, the company CVENT told the world that ‘The role of the planner is changing as planners transition to business event strategists. In-person events may be on hiatus, but you can still think strategically about your event program and leverage technology to elevate your virtual events.’
