Australia’s Future Fund Reaches Over $100 Billion in Assets

Australia’s Future Fund posted an 8.7% annual return for its latest fiscal year ended June 30, 2017.

David Neal, Future Fund’s CEO commented in a release, “Looking at the investment environment, markets have been buoyant over the last year on the back of an improvement in economic conditions across many of the major economies.

In this environment the Board is maintaining its patient long-term approach to investment.”
