There is scope for the ESG-focused (environmental, social and governance) fixed-income mandate to increase to A$500m as the pension fund, First Super, ramps up its responsible investing policy.
First Super is a multi-sector fund with its origins in the pulp and paper, timber and furnishing trades. The A$3.4 billion fund has some 45,000 members.
Cameron Hume is a fixed-income specialist founded in 2011 by Guy Cameron and Chris Torkington. Following the initial investment by First Super the firm now has some £740m under management.
Torkington, managing director, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by First Super for its first ESG mandate.
“Institutional investors are becoming increasingly aware of the need to integrate ESG ratings into their investment strategies and Cameron Hume is extremely well placed to help them to do that.”
Bill Watson, chief executive of First Super, added: “ESG has clearly been at the forefront of institutional investors’ minds, and managers in equities, infrastructure and property have been talking about it for some time.
“Although managers of fixed-income and floating rate debt asset classes have been a bit slower to come to the party I believe you will see more institutional investors looking for managers in this asset class and other asset classes with a good ESG methodology.
“We were keen to work with Cameron Hume because of their commitment to the UN Principles of Responsible Investing (UNPRI) and the reputation the company has gained for introducing ESG into mainstream bond investing.”

A north-East financial adviser is celebrating ranking top on Apple Podcast with his series – The UK Personal Finance Show.
The podcast, hosted by Phil Anderson, Founder of Phil Anderson Financial Services based in Ellon, has consistently charted between number one and number two in the UK for personal finance for the past 30 weeks beating off stiff competition from the likes of the Ask Martin Lewis Podcast, and Barclays UK Personal Finance Show, discussing hot topics under the personal finance category.
The UK Personal Finance Show averages around 1350 downloads a month and continues to receive impressive feedback from listeners.
The podcast is an isolated venture of Phil Anderson Financial Services, which supports an ever-expanding customer base with their financial matters across a range of service areas including investments, pensions, savings, mortgages, and insurance, topics all of which are covered in the podcast series every week.
Phil Anderson, host of The UK Personal Finance Show and managing director at Phil Anderson Financial Services said: “I’m delighted that The UK Personal Finance Show is popular among its listeners and that it’s providing useful advice for people either needing a bit of direction on their finances or that might be struggling with debt.
“We recently invited Wendy Fleming from charity Ditch Debt with Dignity onto the podcast to support their mission to provide free, non-judgemental, confidential, professional advice and support to people who are privately struggling with their finances.
“To thank Wendy for her expertise and time we are donating boxing gloves signed by Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury to help raise money for the charity.”
Wendy Fleming, founder and volunteer advisor at Ditch Debt with Dignity said: “I was delighted to be asked to be a guest on Phil’s podcast to raise awareness of our charity.
“Ditch Debt with Dignity aims to spread the message that no one should feel shame or blame about struggling with money.
“Having money worries is very hard to deal with alone, and we want to reach anyone who might be feeling isolated or anxious. We provide a free confidential service where we listen but never judge.”
The UK Personal Finance Show has featured a number of industry experts to discuss various topics, including Hamish Malcolm on self-build mortgages, and Justin Dunne on secured loans.
