For this Focus Dinner, we’re excited to host Sam Sicilia, HostPlus’ first and only chief investment officer who joined the fund 10 years ago.
Superannuation fund, Hostplus, invested over $1 billion into venture capital last year, making the fund Australia’s largest VC investor. As one of Australia’s largest super-funds with circa A$26 billion in assets, Hostplus has close to one million members and 133,000 sponsoring employers.
Sam joined Hostplus in 2008 as Chief Investment Officer after a storied career in academia and the finance industry stretching back to the early 1990’s. During that time he has held a number of senior roles, both locally and internationally including senior roles within Russell Investments, the Bank of Ireland and Fronteir Investment Consulting to name a few.
Sam has developed a reputation as forward-thinking advocate focusing on tech-led innovation for the future prosperity of the Australian economy.
We hope you can join us for an evening of in-depth and lively conversation with Sam and the company of other founders and leaders in the tech ecosystem.
