The investment case for better asset owner governance

Changing investment for the better

November 25, 2016

Institutional funds have a mission of building wealth for their stakeholders by generating risk-adjusted excess returns. Governance comprises the arrangements put in place to ensure that this outcome is defined and achieved.

We believe the investment case for improving governance is, for most funds, overwhelming. By integrating how strongly they believe in the proposition that improved governance adds value with an objective assessment of where they currently sit in terms of best governance practices, funds can develop a strong business case to undertake a governance strengthening exercise.

Willis Towers Watson works with leading asset owners around the world to help them identify the strengths and weaknesses of their governance arrangements and to implement change programs to enhance them.

Willis Towers Watson is proud to have appointed Sue Brake, a specialist in this area, to add value to our Australian clients with her insights on organisational design and governance.
