Cameron Hume Facilitates First Australian Event for Pensions for Purpose

Leading independent fixed income investment manager, Cameron Hume, joined forces with Pensions for Purpose, AFM and Atchison Consultants to deliver the first virtual Afternoon Tea session in Australia.


Pensions for Purpose have hosted popular Afternoon Tea events in the UK, but this is the first time the event has been held specifically for the Australian market. Each session involves expert speakers and audience discussion and collaboration around a set topic.


This event, held on Sep 15, was on Fixed Income and Climate Risk. Attendees were addressed by Guy Cameron, Chief Investment Officer and Alex Everett, Investment Analyst from Cameron Hume. Commentary was also provided by Karen Shackleton, Head of Pensions for Purpose.


Guy said: “Cameron Hume seeks creative fixed income investment and cash management solutions to achieve sustainable returns. We work with our clients to ensure that climate risk and other ESG factors are integrated into portfolio management, and that our clients take on appropriately priced risks.”


Karen said: “It was fantastic to have Guy and Alex from Cameron Hume fronting our first Afternoon Tea event aimed at the Australian market. Climate risk and ESG investing are becoming increasingly important factors in the Australian fixed income space and this is a field in which Cameron Hume has unrivalled expertise and knowledge. Our audience found their insights tremendously useful and interesting.”
