Four of Australia’s largest investors have partnered with Future IM/Pact. Aware Super, UniSuper, Pinnacle Investment Management and TDM Growth Partners have joined the Future IM/Pact initiative aimed at improving diversity in Australian investing. Future IM/Pact was founded in 2018 to connect Australia’s top investors with women studying at university and early in their early career, and inform them about a career in investing.

Six of Australia’s 10 largest asset owners are now backers of the program, with the $150 billion Aware Super and the $105 billion UniSuper now sitting alongside the Australian Retirement Trust, QIC, VFMC and HESTA. “We’re seeing more super funds and investment management firms recognise the importance of working across industry to build the pipeline of female investors,” said Future IM/Pact founder, Yolanda Beattie. “Having 20 industry partners on board gives us more opportunities to share with our growing pool of female talent, more mentors to support their career journey, and more funding to inspire a passion among more women about a career in this hugely influential industry.”
