Q & A – Super Fund, and fossil fuels and affordable housing

On Q & A today:

  • Political Editor Corin Dann has an extended interview with New Zealand Super Fund chief executive Adrian Orr. Why the fund is getting out of fossil fuels – plus his ambition for affordable housing.

Is the Super Fund going to move towards social investments in a big way? They have enough money to potentially make a big difference, and possible big losses.

  • Whena Owen looks at the state of our billion dollar forestry industry – it’s dominated by foreign operators and much of the processing is sent overseas – can we do better?

 

  • New Zealand tech entrepreneur Derek Handley on how to grow great entrepreneurs.

    “Is the Super Fund going to move towards social investments in a big way? They have enough money to potentially make a big difference, and possible big losses.”

    Well, if they are heading down the ‘socia’ investment’ road, that’s the end of the fund as an investment fund, it’s just spending now. This is always the problem with the government having a fund like this, those tens of billions are just too tempting for those who want to use it for something other than what it was intended for.
