The Board has established an Audit & Risk Committee to assist with the execution of its functions.

The Board has appointed the following advisors:

  • Actuary – Mr David O’Keefe FIAA, ALEA Actuarial Consulting Pty Ltd.
    The Canon requires the Board to procure the advice of an Actuary for the exercise of all its powers that require actuarial knowledge or judgement
  • Asset Consultant – Mr Sean McGing FIAA, McGinn Advisory and Actuarial.
    The Asset Consultant monitors and advises on the suitability and performance of the Fund’s investments, and on risk management issues.
  • Investment Manager – Pendal Group Ltd
    The Fund’s monies are invested in an investment portfolio comprised of a mix of sustainable assets that is expected to provide a balance of investments across a range of asset classes and to produce a reasonably stable rate of investment earnings in future years.

The Board engages the services of the General Synod Office of the Anglican Church of Australia to administer the Fund. The General Synod Office is responsible for the day-to-day operation and management of the Fund.
