Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation appoints Hinerangi Raumati-Tu’ua as a Member of the Board

We are delighted to have partnered with the Independent Nominating Committee on the appointment of Hinerangi Raumati-Tu’ua to the Board of the Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation, the manager of the New Zealand Superannuation Fund.

The management of the New Zealand Superannuation Fund is overseen by an independent Board. Board members are chosen for their experience, training and expertise in the management of financial investments, as well as their mix of complementary skills including governance, leadership, sustainable finance/ESG and commercial acumen.

Hinerangi began her working life as an accountant and subsequently held executive roles with Tainui Group Holdings and Te Wānanga o Aotearoa.

Subsequent to this, Hinerangi’s work has focused mostly on supporting Māori economic development, including work with various Māori Incorporations and post-settlement entities. Her governance career includes directorships with iwi organisations, listed companies, and Crown and Council-Controlled entities, among them the Reserve Bank of New Zealand and Genesis Energy. She was the first woman elected to the Parininihi ki Waitōtara board, and the first Waikato-Tainui iwi member to be appointed chair of Tainui Group Holdings.

The Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation (Guardians) is an autonomous Crown entity entrusted with the management and investment of a significant pool of funds held by the New Zealand Superannuation Fund. The Guardians’ purpose is “sustainable investments delivering strong returns for all New Zealanders”. The  Future withdrawals from the Fund will be used by the Crown to offset the increasing cost of universal superannuation in New Zealand. Last year the Fund, now worth over $70 billion, was ranked the world’s top-performing sovereign wealth fund based on 10-year returns by global state-owned investor think tank Global SWF.
