Genevieve Murray will join Melbourne-based Future Fund in November as head of listed equities, a spokesman for the A$162.3 billion ($99.9 billion) sovereign wealth fund said Tuesday.
Ms. Murray will replace Megan Ford, who stepped in as acting head of listed equities in March when Bjorn Kvarnskog joined the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, Abu Dhabi. He started in March as senior adviser within the evaluation and follow-up division, an ADIA spokesman said. ADIA does not disclose the size of its portfolio.
The spokesman said Ms. Ford will return to her previous role as director, listed equities.
Ms. Murray will report to David George, deputy chief investment officer, public markets.
As of the most recent portfolio update for the quarter ended March 31, Future Fund reported A$30.8 billion of investments in developed market equities, A$13.9 billion in emerging markets equities and A$9.9 billion in Australian equities.
Ms. Murray will join Future Fund from AMP Capital, where she was head of Australian equities. She will remain with AMP Capital through October to allow a smooth transition to Jason Davis, co-portfolio manager with Ms. Murray of the AMP Capital Equity fund, an AMP spokeswoman said in an email. Ms. Murray's responsibilities for the AMP Capital sustainable fund will be "worked through over the coming months," the spokeswoman said.
