We invest responsibly and manage risk prudently, using a commercially rigorous approach to investment activities and risk management practices. Our investment policies cover our investment strategy, performance benchmarks and our approach to managing risk.
Our Investment Policies are formulated under Section 68 of the CEFC Act. This version of the policy document became effective on 19 February 2019, when it was approved by the Board.
The CEFC Board has established an enterprise-wide Risk Management Framework to monitor and manage all areas of risk that our business faces, including strategic, investment and financial risks, operational risks and regulatory risks.
Our Values and the Code of Conduct and Ethics set the standards of behaviour we require of our people. We promote a risk aware culture where:
Consistent with section 68 of the CEFC Act, the Risk Management Framework sets out the manner in which risk is managed for the CEFC’s investments and for the Corporation itself.
The CEFC does not accept risks that compromise the integrity of the organisation and we require our people to behave ethically. We have appropriate tolerance for the risks necessary to deliver on our statutory and strategic objectives.
