The Board establishes committees that it sees appropriate, to help carry out its responsibilities. Each committee has a charter that sets out its composition, responsibilities, and administration. While committees have specific membership, all Trustees may attend meetings. The current Board committees are:

The Investment Committee helps the Board with the oversight of the investment of Fund assets. The Committee’s principal duties and responsibilities include: 
  • recommending to the Board the investment objectives for the Fund and its various member investment choice (MIC) options 
  • recommending to the Board the investment policy for the Fund  
  • reviewing the adequacy of QSuper MIC options and their ability to meet member retirement needs 
  • recommending the investment delegations for QSL management 
  • monitoring investment performance, including the performance of external investment managers 
  • discussing investment issues with the Board and/or management (and independent parties, if and when the need arises)
The Audit & Risk Committee operates across the QSuper Group. It helps the Board discharge its corporate governance and oversight responsibilities in relation to the following:
  • financial reporting 
  • internal controls 
  • risk management systems 
  • anti-money laundering 
  • licensing and other legal and regulatory issues
  • Investment administration
  • compliance 
  • internal and external audit functions.
The Remuneration Committee helps the Board fulfil its responsibility of fiduciary oversight to members by making sure QSuper (and its related entities) have a clearly articulated and appropriate remuneration framework. This framework must fairly and responsibly reward individuals, taking into account performance, risk management, legislative requirements and the highest standards of governance.
