Speaker: Elizabeth Ooi, PhD Candidate, Monash University

The agency relationships, governance mechanisms and board practices of pension fund boards are unlike those faced by corporations and so provide an ideal opportunity to examine the interlocking-compensation relation under non-traditional conditions.

At this boardroom briefing, Ms Elizabeth Ooi utilises a sample of 249 Australian pension funds from 2004 to 2011 to investigate a number of issues including the impact of board interlocking on board compensation and on fund performance.

This boardroom briefing will provide a forum to discuss a unique evidence base which has implications for the current debate on superannuation board structure.
