Our Investment team manages our members' funding under the guidance and stewardship of the Board and our Investment Committee.

While our primary objective has not changed, the Investment team has evolved tremendously over the last five years, both in terms of size and sophistication.

From previously focussing on allocating monies to external fund managers, the current operating model sees us manage around half of our overall assets internally.
