KGB: Future Fund's Mark Burgess

The Future Fund's managing director discusses the difficulties in finding the right infrastructure investment, which overseas markets offer the best returns and what the fund's views are on the Australian dollar.

RG: Mark, I’d put to you, though, that in your latest portfolio approximately 23 to 24 per cent, you know, in what I would regard as high risk investments – that is, alternative assets and private equity. It seems to me that to get that return you’ve upped the risk level with those two categories.
