Matt Whineray to Serve As Interim Chief At NZ Super

Published

on

The Board of Guardians of the New Zealand Superannuation Fund (NZ Super) appointed chief investment officer Matt Whineray to serve as the sovereign fund’s acting head in mid-March of 2018 following the exit of current chief executive Adrian Orr, who will be beginning his five-year term as Governor of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. A lawyer by training who spent his early career in investment banking at Credit Suisse and First NZ Capital, Whineray is well positioned to capitalize on the Fund’s stellar performance in 2017. He will be celebrating his 10-year-anniversary at NZ Super in May.

The search for Adrian Orr’s replacement officially began in January 2018, and is expected to take a number of months to complete, with submissions coming from around the globe. Mark Fennel, general manager of portfolio completion and longtime veteran at NZ Super, will take up the duties of chief investment officer for the duration of the recruitment process, according to a press release.

An accomplished economist with extensive experience in public sector finance, Adrian Orr took the helm at NZ Super in 2007, and has earned a spot numerous times in the Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute’s Public Investor 100 annual ranking over the years, most recently in 2017 at #3.
